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?! 🙂

Samsung will release a software in a few days that will fix that.

It's still a software issue that will be fixed. Notice how vivid and standard color schemes are the same.

Switching natural to vivid doesn't even flicker.

What makes it so bad is with the always on display. If your using city pics as an aod you won't hardly be able to see them at night. Hopefully this fix also fixes this issue.

Yeah, when I switch to vivid mode, it doesn't even flicker.. 😂 But also, when I try to add other things like eye comfort shield.. It doesn't change much.. So.. Question is.. Is it stuck on natural and some sort of eye comfort setting?

There's a lot going on that is not just the colors washed our, look at the contrast and the brightness needs ro be cranked up a lot to match the s23u's brightness. I'll wait a few days to see if Samsung addresses the issue via software patch, if they don't, I'll return the phone before the return window closes, and I'll keep my s23u.20240128_001855_1000002298_1706419135.jpg
