    5.0 color banding

    Do any of the 5.0 OS's solve the color banding issue?

    Any OS from 4.7.0.151 on up pretty much eliminate the "color banding" issue. There's still a minor amount if you really look for it, but such are the limitations of a 16-bit screen. Most of the images we display on the screen are either 24 bit or 32 bit; so there are ALOT of missing colors.

    Can you see the Color Band? Nah not that much... A Single color yet different gradient changes are in the wallpaper... Back in 4.7 you could see splotches while it changes... Although so far no OS has removed color band completely and will not since the screen isn't made to a high BIT of color depth, so far this is the best we got... But if you really want to see color band go ahead and go to (under 5.0) Options>Advanced Options>Accessibility>Color Contrast - Set it to Greyscale....

    Then you will see the Wallpaper true gradient changes just like this:



    So although 5.0 still has small color band issues... It still is the most dominate on clearing this up... I doubt we will see better since the hardware isnt that up to par for visual images unlike the Ipod/Iphone/Zune Device which sports great color depth... If you notice the "BlackHawk" patent in earlier posts there is talks about "OLED" ... This will fix any color band issue forever haha OLED is what DSL/Cable is to 56k

    Well hope this clears things up and gives some people something to play with...
