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?! 🙂

Cameras are definitely improved.
Vivid wasn't a thing for me, I rock natural!

Choices are a great thing, unlike that Fruit Company!

I have bought the s24 ultra 2days back. Now suddenly the the display color washout. I have compared with my s22 ultra there is lot of difference. 

I tried to search in youtube and found videos that so many are facing the same issue. What is the resolution for this ?

They pushed a update for this a few weeks ago,  you need to go to Display settings and toggle off adaptive color tone and set the screen mode to Vivid

The colors of my Samsung s24 ultra seems to be washed out. I searched for a solution online but found none. All I know is that apparently the vivid setting isn't working as it is supposed to. Any tips?

I had the S24 Ultra for just shy of 2 weeks and returned it for that very reason. Purchased a new S23 plus for less half the price of the 24. Huge difference in color. Also it's running the latest version of Android and Samsung UI as of today. A no brainer for me

Same but Samsung claimed I sent an empty box and had to file a Dispute 🫠

Am back to using my Fold 5 again with 6.1 👍

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope everything works out for you. Again, that's really the only thing I was disappointed with was the color and brightness. For whatever reason, I really couldn't adjust it.
