Motorola launched the Moto Z2 Force just a month ago and has been hit by a controversy already. Moto Z2 Force users, much like the OnePlus 5 are now complaining of this bizarre jelly-like effect taking place while scrolling up and down the screen. To recall soon after the launch of OnePlus 5, users started complaining that text, images, and other content expand and shrink as users scroll the screen up and down.
OnePlus 5 was the first phone with the Jelly-like issue, the company surprisingly didn’t call it an issue at all. The company issued a formal statement in which they have mentioned that the subtle visual effect while scrolling is totally natural. Hence, OnePlus will never roll out any fix for the same as the company doesn’t see it as a problem in the first place.
OnePlus 5 users reportedly complained of the jelly effect occurs while scrolling through certain applications, well, similar is the case with the Moto Z2 Force as well. “My Moto Z2 Force is displaying the same screen jelly behavior,” notes XDA Developers. The jelly-like effect especially occurs in the app drawer, Twitter application, and on the settings section notes the person who suffered the problem.
He further mentioned, “When I unboxed my Moto Z2 Force, within 5 minutes of using the phone I knew it also had the issue as there is clear warping occurring while scrolling through the app drawer and settings menu.” The user further mentioned that the jelly effect is mostly visible “when you look at the word “Display” while it is scrolling while referring to the video the person shot with HTC U11. “If you look closely you can see that the panel on the Moto Z2 Force actually refreshes in the opposite direction than the Galaxy S8+, an indication that the display is mounted in an inverted orientation,” he further notes.
Earlier, several Reddit users speculated that the issue (Jelly-effect) occurred because the screen on the OnePlus 5 was mounted 180 degrees, basically inverted. However, later XDA found out that these claims were actually true and by looking at the kernel source code of the OnePlus 5 they found out that the display controller to compensate by 180 degrees. Further, later a teardown video of the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3T, obtained by Reddit user — Tassadar revealed that the display of the OnePlus 5 is actually placed in an inverted position. Chances are similar is the scene with the Moto Z2 Force as well.
However, Motorola hasn’t addressed the issue as of yet. OnePlus issued an official statement on the Jelly effect on the OnePlus 5. The company said, “The OnePlus 5 uses the same level of high-quality components as all OnePlus devices, including the AMOLED display. We’ve received feedback from a small number of users saying that at times they notice a subtle visual effect when scrolling. This is natural and there’s no variance in screens between devices.”
