    On my brand new iPhone X, the text goes unsharp when scrolling over a page in the browser. It is starting to cause nausea in my head already. Very disappointing for a top model phone. How could Apple allow this? My old iPhone 6 did not have this issue. Is there any solution for this?

    It's the nature of OLED, or at least the type of OLED panel used in the iPhone X.

    The solution is iPhone 8 plus (or just 8). There was a very good reason why Apple released both the 8 and the X at the same time. The X has display issues. Some people aren't bothered by them- others are. Just be glad you get to choose.

    Are you scrolling in black UI apps? Those are problematic in OLED displays as the font "glues" to the background while scrolling. A higher refresh rate like 120 HZ screen would solve that. Maybe scroll while not looking directly to the screen?

    Thats normal for the iPhone X. It's not as smooth as previous iPhones. For a top model next generation phone you get blurry scrolling for that. lol

    I only notice the ghosting on a black background when the brightness is way down. OLED display are a bit different than backlit LCD displays in that way. The perfect blacks are worth it for me, fortunately. That’s definitely a bummer if it makes you nauseous!

    It’s just pixel response times at 60hz are so fast on OLED so the screen is too crisp when it scrolls - which is not a good thing!

    On the prior-gen LCDs, the pixel response times are slower so everything is smoother (and blurrier). 120hz would help the OLED in this regard.

    OLED pixel response times are ~0.1ms. However, the refresh rate is only 60hz on the iPhones. That’s not refreshing the screen enough times per second to resolve the detail the OLED’s pixels can provide with their lightning-fast response times.
