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?! 🙂

Exactly. It doesn't work. If my email icon is blue, it's supposed to be blue on the AOD. If my Messages icon is magenta, it's supposed to be magenta on the AOD. It's not: everything is still white currently with the latest Lockstar and AOD.

Just tested every single combo I could. No matter what, when set to Auto, notification icons on the AOD remain WHITE. I'm able to set any other custom color I want, but then it's all the icons.

Eagerly awaiting the Vivid mode update scheduled for tomorrow. So I will no longer have to tolerate using my miserably dull and drab 24 Ultra. Bring the Color Samsung using the device as-is, is depressing.

Hyped for the vivid feature as well. It starts rolling out tomorrow, but it's up to your carrier to push out the update. So don't be surprised if you don't get it exactly by tomorrow.

That's fair. Samsung Global's official announcement stated only that rollout would begin in February.

Couldn't agree more.... Either way, I'm out the next Apple that gets released. Can't believe I'm saying that but a month for a first update for high end electronics is unheard of now days... Even the tech magazines are saying it should have been released with days to a week.
