As we have posted before we have been testing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1″ for business use.
Annoyingly we have fell victim to the oil slick, newton rings problem.
We have been reading online that you may be able to fix the problem by putting the tab in the fridge for an hour or so. We think this is totally unacceptable! We bought the 16gb WiFi version for £400.00 not something that I fancy having to put in the fridge every now and again. We have also heard that putting a sucker on the screen and gently pulling may also temporarily fix the problem.
We took our tab back to PC World (where we bought it from) on Monday 3rd October. Annoyingly they wouldn’t swap it for a new one as we’ve had it for more than 21 days. So I was told they would get it sent back to Samsung urgently as they “understand my frustrations” and I need it back for work!
I have just been to PC World (Friday 07th Oct) (as they wouldn’t answer their phone) to see how they are getting on with my tab. I was so annoyed to find out that it still has not been sent off to Samsung. The cheeky guy behind the counter even said to me when I handed over my booking form “Oh yeah its the Samsung Galaxy Tab with the broken screen isn’t it?” I said “NO! It’s the stupid manufacturing defect!”
I then went to have a look at some of the other tabs as I want to get myself an Asus EEE Transformer with the dock. I saw their Samsung Galaxy Tab on display and was amazed to see that the one they had on display actually has the same oil slick problem!!!!
So we took a video of the problem which can be viewed by clicking the link below. Please like the video and / or leave a comment if you are also facing the same problem!
