Reddish tint on S8+

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hello,

 

Phone operated fine until OTA Android update has totally ruined the screen was a reddish/yellow tint. The phone will boot and display correct color (Android and Samsung logos, encryption login page), but as soon as home screen loads the white goes to reddish. Randomly without reason (usually at night for a few hours), the color will correct itself. I can confirm that blue light filter is not activated, and the white balance correction on adaptive display does nothing to correct the color. I have tried factory reset and it does nothing to correct the issue. An otherwise perfect phone is ruined with a screen that is terrible to use, because of bad software that I can't fix.

Mine has a reddish tint once it goes to the homescreen and the adaptive display isn't enough to fix it also basic mode is slightly yellow when turning it on 😔

I also have a reddish tint on my Galaxy S8, I've seen the Night light fix on Google Play Books that did nothing. Is there a different alternative

@userptm568wawc Do you experience these symptoms if you test your device in safe mode? Do you have the blue light filter turned on in your quick settings?
