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?! 🙂

Just (23/02/24) updated my S24 Ultra to UI 6.1.25 and promised fix to Vivid mode is still missing. 30 day trial is due to end in following week so I will be returning phone to Samsung.

Agreed. Hadn't realised that advanced settings option is missing if 'Adaptive Colour Tone' is selected. Not that the UI warns this is the case...!

so.. i have this weird bug on YouTube App. 

If i have video brightness set to Bright, when I open the app.. it has a brown-ish tint in the app.

I i have video brightness set to Normal, the colors are normal, no brown-ish tint in the app.

Has anyone else notice this?

I want to see where all those people are that were crying saying that Samsung won't fix the display issue and blah blah blah. All they had to do was be patient and the update has arrived! Thanks Samsung 👐
