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?! 🙂

I haven't yet tested any other features from today's update (camera improvements, etc.), but the vividness slider works like a charm. Now, there's a viewing experience for everyone, whether you prefer a less vivid "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" color palette (if you've seen the movie, then you know what I mean), the more vibrant S23-style palette, or even garishly vivid at the far end of the slider, if that's your thing.

Power to the people for speaking up and letting Sam know that their executive decision to remove the ability to customize one's viewing experience was a globally unpopular one. And much respect to Sam for listening to those concerns and correcting course. These devices (and the associated average revenue per user) cost a lot, so user feedback matters.

Still, how do I get my Tablet S9 as neutral as my S24u?

Update is available. Can't wait to see how they fixed all these OS issues.

There is supposed to be more then 1 camera update. Samsung either forgot or just didn't list them all in the patch notes. If you have the Ultra there are 6 or more camera updates.

I wasn't able to screenshot "view more" under App updates. May be in there.

Thank you Samsung for giving us the vivid slider. Now can you please give us back the slider to adjust the brightness of AOD, just like how it was before. Also please do something to increase the volume. It is not as loud as my previous Galaxy phones. I know I am not alone in this because I've read other posts about it.
