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?! 🙂

Hello!

I got my S24 ultra 2 days ago and I am not satisfied at all with the screen colours' and the battery. The screen colours' seem so washed out and are so much different than the oldest Samsung phones... I had the S9+ and the difference in colours is so clear... does anyone know how to solve this problem?... or will the Samsung solve this problem?... I am also facing problems with the battery, it turns out quickly and once I start to use my phone it becomes hot from behind.

I will appreciate any help

Thank you.

There seems to be a bug regarding color saturation on home screen. As far as the battery goes, it took about 3 days for it to finally settle in for me. I got a full day with heavy use yesterday.

I am having no issues with my Vanilla S24.  Maybe Ultra has all of problems.

Are you sure Forbes contacted Samsung? It seems to me that she is just reporting.

Screenshot_20240129_223453_AlwaysOnDisplay.jpg  Attached is screen shot from my Galaxy S20+ showing options for AOD clocks...styles, colors, and option to adjust location on screen.  This entire range of controls are missing from my new Galaxy S24+.  Also missing is easy brightness adjustment control. This is what I was referencing in my previous mail.
