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?! 🙂

Hmm... it could be a screen protector. BTW I'm also having the same issue with my S24 Ultra and I'm using Samsung's anti glare screen protector too. So, just trying to figure out if it's the screen or the screen protector.

PLEASE ADVISE, it is NOT the screen protector for my phone. It's is simply the phone or software itself. However, your phone has the same problem but also an additional problem with the retina display. Read the msg below, this is fromcm a samsung rep I spoke to last night: (I see, in this case this is a known issue with the display since S24 Ultra comes with retina display it is common in every S24 ultra. The screen is set in a way to protect your eyes and give seamless experience. And not the same display like S23 but ye sit is grainy but not all S24 has the same issue)

According to this test, I keep seeing issues from rvb 20, there even appears to be vertical line right in the middle of display. When I try to take a screenshot, it disappears from the video and grains change structure. Could that be a sign of a software issue?

After I returned two units with grainy display, I finnaly recived one with no issues. From my IMMEI it was manufactured 08.02.2024 so I think newer batches are fixed.
