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 received my S24 Ultra yesterday January 26 and having the same exact issue. i compared it with my zflip5 and yes the screen color seems very dull. It seems like a Software issue and Samsung knows about it and will release a patch hopefully

Same issue here. It hurts my eyes. Screen looks like it's from 2008. Night and day difference compared to the s23 ultra

If there is no fix in 13 days I may end up joining the Apple team... No excuse Samsung!

I'm having the same problem on my S24 Ultra. The colors are so dull and muted. My S21 Ultra screen is far more vibrant and colorful. We've come to expect a certain standard of color and contrast on Samsung's OLED screens, but the S24 ultra screen looks horrible. I'm not sure what they've done here, but I'm very disappointed. I also am going to return my S24 Ultra. No point in buying a new phone from Samsung that will just make me frustrated every time the lock screen turns on and I see how horrible the screen coloring is. Really disappointed. I was so excited for this new Samsung phone to be released.

I guess s23 ultra got in me a quit because I got my s24 ultra yesterday and soon as I turn it on my s24 ultra screen felt off like it's was in eye shield mode and I checked and I turn the eye shield on It just looked worst! And personally person like me who plays game you can see Day and night difference!!!! Looking at s24 ultra performance it's SUPERB BUT DISPLAY IAM DISAPPOINTED A LOT.

The same here! Vivid or  natural changes nothing; and even changing white balance does nothing!!! The green tint is there when the screen is off. I will wait a day or two but my phone is going back. Too much of a risk for this much money
