as you joined in April 2011, if your Tab was new, it should still be under the 12 month guarantee
worth logging on to Samsung support, your account & checking for a guarantee repair or replacement
Thanks for the tip Bart, but I have already tried that.
Actually, I tried 3 replacements in store. Each time there was a different problem. The first one had this screen issue, the second would never connect 3G, the third had a bad yellow stain in the screen, then I managed to get another one with the same problem as the first, which appeared to be the least severe of them, and gave up replacing.
Naturally, I underestimated how disppointing this problem would be. The deadline for store replacement was gone, and I sent it to Samsung for repairing. I even sent the link to the picture and videos I included in this post. Samsung dared to say that the Tab was perfect. Apparently, they have a concept that if you can use it, it is working perfectly. Bad for Samsung.
I was upset in the beginning, but then I was happy to find out that Galaxy Tabs are not the only Android tablet options out there. I love the portability of my P1000L, how handy it is, etc, but I got seduced by the 10.1 inches screen, HDMI out, great keyboard dock, Honeycomb OS, battery life, full size USB in the keyboard dock, and price that the Asus offers.
I hate to say that in a GT forum, but giving up the GT was my best move =/.
