Hi All

I've just got my S24+ today to upgrade my trusty but ageing S10+ having not strayed from Samsung for almost 10 years. Naturally I was hoping it would be an upgrade in all departments but although on the whole it is, there's several annoying and unexpected downgrades that are making me seriously question whether it's actually worth spending quite a bit of money to change.

Firstly, the screen although pin sharp is really washed out. Even in vivid mode the colours are dull and the blacks are significantly more grey than the S10 screen, and even look washed out when put alongside my wife's budget spec A52! I've played around with brightness and colour tone etc but I can't dial it out, and my cousin who's got an S24 Ultra said exactly the same when comparing it against the S22 it's replacing.

Then there's some bizarre features missing from OneUI 6.1, the ones I've noticed so far are specifically in the Always On Display settings.  I use AOD to display as a bedside clock,  with my S10 and also in OneUI 6.0 / Android 14 on the A52 you can rotate the AOD to landscape orientation and control the brightness, you could even do the latter from the AOD lock screen by tapping twice on the clock to access the brightness slider. In OneUI 6.1 unless I'm missing something it seems all that functionality is missing, the brightness of the AOD is linked to the main screen brightness setting which is far too bright for overnight use, and you can't set it to landscape mode which I'd prefer when on it's horizontal night stand next to the bed. Why this functionality would be omitted I have no idea, but it's really annoying! Please someone enlighten me to some hidden menu somewhere that fixes all these issues?! 🙂

I can't adjust the brightness of the AOD screen
It's way to dark

 just wanted to say that I just fixed s24+, from my dad. He bought it in Bosnia and Herzegowina and his display was green tone. He had s21+ and transfered his data with smart switch. That means he transfered his all data, settings etc. On older phones ( I have s22+ ) we have option filter colors, every color individually. On s24+ we have more extensive option. I opened settings, then Accessibility, then Vision enhancements, then Filter colors and I just turn it off. Display is normal, and his phone is working perfectly. This happened only with customers who did transfer his data with smart switch and his settings from old to new phone. Good luck from Bosnia:)

On my S24 Ultra, this was already set to off and it (still) looks horrible.  Likely going to return.

I highly doubt it. I compared all 3 models side by side before purchasing and the Ultra's display was way worse than the other two. It definitely is a hardware issue due to the anti reflective coating. Cursing myself on pre-ordering a half baked product and paying a premium. This is why I used to tell myself never to pre-order anything.

i checked both the eye shield and the adaptive color tone, and they were both turned off already and still my screen colors are so dull and way less sharped and vivid as my S23 ultra, which is a big thumps down

That made no difference on the washed out colors on my S24.

It has nothing to do with the anti-glare coating. it is a software bug that is not letting the Vivid selection on the screen display settings activate. Samsung has so much as admitted this. I am under the impression that they are working on a software fix, and a software update will be released soon.
