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?! 🙂

There is no place for patience here. Having 14 days to return this phone, I can't tolerate this screen quality for a $1500 device . They have to fix it in the next 7 days and if not then it's going back

Then take it back, and wait 60 days for the restock since they are sold put, and loose all your preorder bonuses.

Turn off eye comfort shield, it fixes it for some reason.

Not to me and not to anyone I know or any reviewer on youtube. Or here on the forums. There is nothing fixing this washed out dull screen issues. Unless Samsung releases a new patch that fixing. Or it's just the screen coating. Let's see.

It doesn't "resolve" the issue you just think you see less because the screen becomes slightly brighter. The color doesn't do a **bleep** thing from standard to vivid. But I agree taking out eye comfort does help. I have yet to clear my S22 Ultra because I hate how dull the screen is compared to the S22 in the same settings
