If you check out other sets, you will see that the amount of banding varies. Mine's the worst I've seen so far.

And understand the banding happens everywhere, and U should try the real life cases to see if it bothers you.

Set your "Screen mode" in display settings to "Standard", then compare your Note with the 2 samples below. Both left and right were taken from Galaxy Notes! This shows how much the screen quality can vary from set to set. FYI mine looks similar to the left set.
Source of the video: xda-developers - View Single Post - [Q] Video on Note




Ultimately it's whether you find your screen acceptable. I did not, so I sent mine in to Samsung. They agreed it was serious and I'm waiting for replacement.
hmm.....my note display ok leh..only some unit has defective screen?

It depends on what you consider as "defective" - All Notes have some banding issue, and the severity varies from set to set.

I happen to be "lucky" enough to get a set with the most banding I've seen so far.

Do try out the video if you haven't.

The video quality on my Note was slightly reduced from the ones on the right column. The ones on the right column look almost perfect.

Ahh then your set should be fine!

Yup, it's very difficult to get a "perfect" set it seems. One guy in xda exchanged like 6 times still can't get a set he's happy with.
But I think the important thing is, are you happy with your screen in general?

Please understand... it's a problem with the AMOLED screen. So any app that uses the screen may get affected.

I saw the same problems in Images (see my earlier post for the wallpaper pack), Games (eg. Modern Combat 3, Angry Birds), Apps (calculator lol).

Whether it affects you is subjective and depends on:
  1. How bad is your screen
  2. How tolerant you are towards image artifacts like banding and blotches
  3. The wallpapers, images, apps you use.

So only way is to try it out and decide for yourself.

I can reproduce the quality on the left and right by using Voodoo Screen,

left side is Native , right side is Samsung display settings
