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 believe they're TAKING AWAY features!?! I suffered thru a loooong extra year with an i phone (my grass is greener complex got me again) I could've got s23ultra but held off due to the rumors and expectations that Samsung had something
:w🤩w: planned for s24 series. So far I see a lot of new fluff. Hopefully, after exploring a little more I'll be excusing my haste, raving about (insert awesome features here).
I am still SO glad to be back though!

I just recently purchased the s24 ultra and it's an amazing phone however it has a serious screen issue that needs to be called to Samsung's attention so a software update can hopefully be issued soon to resolve the issue. The colors on and S24 series are very dull and nowhere near as vibrant as the colors on my old S22 Ultra. The vivid mode appears broken on the s24. This video summarizes the issue very well. https://youtu.be/rSkhC4AGhxg?feature=shared. I kindly request that Samsung please resolve this issue ASAP.

Yeah we need to make Samsung aware of this issue so it can be resolved soon.

Be patient, it's not like it hasn't been a whine and cheese festival on all the forums.

It's not going to get resolved QUICKLY if there isn't urgency, which is what excessive posting creates.

Spamming only creates more noise. Samsung is aware of the issue and it's working on an update per their customer care team.

They relesse updates monthly. We won't see a fix for this until the Feb update at the earliest.

Bwahaha yeah I'll bet you $1000 on the spot that if there is indeed a software solution to this problem, it comes as soon as possible—very likely before February (at least announced), and definitely not near the end as all other monthly updates are.

This is brand suicide for Samsung and I can guarantee you they are acutely aware of it currently

There is no place for patience here. Having 14 days to return this phone, I can't tolerate this screen quality for a $1500 device . They have to fix it in the next 7 days and if not then it's going back
