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?! 🙂

Why? Please put it back. For what reason this was removed is beyond me. The screen clock is way too dim. You can't even read it at night.

I don't have an S24 phone myself, but I have seen several other posts mentioning this.

According to this article, AOD brightness for S24 phones has been merged with the main screen brightness control. The author of the article said they were able to see results by turning on Auto-adaptive brightness.

Thank you for the reply. It didn't work. Hopefully, they will put it back on the settings.

I got the update recently and it did fix the vivid display; however, very disappointed that the AOD is still soooo dim...When will Samsung address this issue, because there is no way to INCREASE AOD brightness!!!

Personally, I like it. Way better than the too bright way that apple does it.

With the brightness slider we had b4, you can adjust the AOD brightness.   Now, if you like it bright, you're **bleep**.

Problem is the clock can become too dim to see at night. I want the brightness slider back.

Yes.... Can't see the clock!   Question is, will Samsung  fix this and give us the brightening slider?
