Almost immediately after launching in late June, some people began noticing a “jelly” effect on the phone’s Optic AMOLED display while quickly scrolling through the phone’s various screens, such as on a web page or a Twitter feed.

Weekly Poll: How do you prefer to buy your movie tickets?

When it comes to watching movies on the big screen, we all have our preferences.
