Hardware issue. I've just had mine repaired, expecting it back today or tomorrow and I will see if it is fixed or not.

@N_LaRUE: It's a known issue with the L930, you won't be able to see it on a screenshot because it's the actual display that adds the purple tint :).

Ohhhh! Yes I heard of that issue. So it's a replacement in this case. At least I hope they can replace it.

Let us know if the repair fix purple hue on your display, Microsoft claims that there was some error with display calibrating & it will fix with next major firmware update.

Not normal, it's a issue that comes with most of L930.

Got it back today. Still the purple hue despite new display. Luckily my other issues do seem fixed.

They've been saying a firmware update will fix the purple hue for about 6 months now. So far, their only 'fix' has been to put the brightness profile in the 'display' app on the highest setting so the automatic dimming doesn't dim low enough to make it too purple anymore... But of course this means the display will not dim as low anymore in darker situations. In other words, the display itself is just pretty poor and I have no hope they will fix it.
