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?! 🙂

Same here. My phone is already back in the box. If no fix is released, I'm returning it

Look up Matte vs Glossy. It's hardware. Everyone is used to glossy displays.

It is not the matte treatment as there have been reports of the same issue on the S24 and 24+ which does not have the same matte treatment. Also see this https://youtu.be/AmYmLdt5LmY?feature=shared

I have not heard anything about the base and plus, but the ultra does have a matte display. It's been talked about since it was announced. Just in this forum by itself EVERY report here is the Ultra and not a single one is for the other 2.

I have seen some reports of the same problem in the base and plus model. Here is one from reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS24/s/bzClgLUqpv
There are a couple of others. I'm sure the matte display will surely influence how things look, but I don't think the reports we have been seeing are due to the matte display. We'll see. I might be wrong. I'm going to wait until the next software update to see if the issue gets fixed.

It's a software issue, turn off the comfort shield and it will fix it. That filters out blue light.

Não resolverá totalmente! A Samsung precisa urgentemente lançar uma atualização de software para corrigir esse e diversos outros problemas da linha S24.

How is it after all these years there is no AOD brightness settings and no moving clock to avoid screen burn in? It's way too dim to see and if it doesn't move, no matter how good this panels is, screen burn in will happen. Samsung please get on this and return these settings to the device. There really is no reason not to.
