Another report said they start to diminish with time (many hours) as well. Be interesting to see some long term reports. Probably can only do this with the phones since they've been out the longer.
No, the problem remains no matter how long you play a game, I did already 3h non-stop of Uncharted and the problem looked exactly the same as when I started playing.
I assumed the problem would diminish with time to, since we could assume the product used to bond the screen to the front of the vita would "dry" with time leading to a uniform aspect, but I read somewhere the problem won't go away by itself, only time will tell I assume.
What makes no sense to me is that, as far as I know, the OLED technology is all about per-pixel brightness, what I mean is that since the light source is the pixel itself and not a backlight source, if the pixel is OFF or presenting 0/0/0/0 color (pure black) it should produce no light at all, so why is that pattern still so visible?
As I said on tweeter just minutes ago " It's a HUGE "no problem" I don't need (MUST!) to solve!"
It drives me nuts while I'm playing a game with dark scenes, to see those "darker" spots noticeable, this shouldn't happen, and what's more frustrating is that replacing the VITA won't solve the problem (might very well end with a even more spotty VITA) and GAME won't even accept it, saying it's "normal".
I want to point to everyone that this "problem" isn't as serious as I may "picture it", since it's ONLY noticeable if you play on a almost completely dark room and on scenes where black and dark grey image is presented, otherwise the screen is fantastic, still if you have a little bit of OCD this issue will drive you mad, I feel this is somehow even worse than a dead pixel, since it's less obvious, making the process of looking for it even more obsessive and stressful.
