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?! 🙂

Not being able to set the brightness level on the Aod screen is ridiculous. If I wanted it to be like an iPhone, I would have bought an iPhone! This is something Samsung really blew. Get your heads out of your a__es and put the brightness option back in the AOD!

I wrote about this and lots have complained about it. Samsung isn't taking heed like with the washed out display. I returned my s24 plus and kept my Note 20 ultra. I won't be purchasing the s24 due to this. I love my AOD on my Note. I don't need all the other AI stuff.

I just updated my S23 Ultra to 6.1 and lost the ability to change the AOD clock brightness too. I wish I could roll back! This is crazy, and looking at this thread, it looks like it's been broken for a while now.

For me the AOD feature is super important to be able to get an indication of everything In a glance without touching my phone. It's totally a game changer and if it doesn't get fixed soon I'll need to change my device. currently the AOD is very dim and most of the time I can't see anything.I can live without the colors but without brightness it's pointless FYI Galaxy S23+ One UI 6.1
