The OnePlus 5 was in the news a few weeks ago after users discovered an “undesirable” screen effect which would become known as “jelly scrolling.” This makes a scrollable page appear to squash and stretch when swiping up or down it.
Now, the folks over at XDA Developers have seemingly found the same effect on the Moto Z2 Force also. In a post published over the weekend, XDA discussed the issue in connection with the Moto Z2 Force, before showing it in action in a video that you can watch below.
While the effect is visible in the video, it may not apply to every single Moto Z2 Force device. Furthermore, the lengths to which it is a problem for the individual user of any device affected will vary (it might be apparent on some people’s devices and they may never be fully aware of it.)
XDA suggests that the issue is linked to the orientation of the display panel, as it is mounted upside down like the OnePlus 5 panels. This, however, is unconfirmed. OnePlus did actually investigate the situation regarding jelly scrolling on the OnePlus 5, before declaring that the effect was “natural.” Because of this, a replacement under warranty wouldn’t be possible for owners seeking that as a solution. It seems likely that Lenovo would see things the same way.
