Got the update this morning but I don't really have any real problem with my display anyway
Uncharted, 08 May 2017Another news from samsung s8: https://www.sammobile.com/2017/05/06/samsung-quietly-removes-... moreIts to snychronized exynos and snapdragon performance. One or the other need to be underclocked for this purposes. You wont want to see one chipset works better than the other would you?
Prometheous, 08 May 2017Slow as heck in galaxy S8 because it's downclocked and a slower storage is used too. The same ... moreYeah the same chipset but the Optimisation will be far more superior than Samsung. B-)
Anonymous, 08 May 2017News are getting boring these days.. haaayyyy!!!!why ? because it involve samsung ?
For a $900-$1000 phone even getting scammed having slow storage UFS 2.1 they instead put UFS 2.0.... Wow they copying Apple too....
My pink tint issue was concentrated on one side of my phone so when I tried to use this method one side of the display was almost blueish while the other was very warm with yellowish whites. Samsung customer service approved my return request due to manufacture defects without any fight at all.

What it's doing is recalibrating the display parameters to make the tint unnoticeable. The patch is doing what Samsung advised you to do manually by tinkering the color settings. So if you have a red tint issue, get your phone changed for a normal one.

I got a Mi Mix (IPS LCD) a while ago and returned it because of a dark patch (it showed up on colours and grays not white or black). Aside from that the LCD colours, sunlight performance, viewing angles etc were so poor even compared with my Note 4 screen (which is nothing on my S8+).
Given there are no reports of the patch not working it is fair to say the tint problem is fixed.
(Didn't have it on my S8+)

They said it isn't a display, but a software problem. They said that Guard S8 is only for hardware, doesn't include software.
When I asked for repair and upload new software, they couldn't do it. They don't have fix for "red tint" yet.
When I asked for repair and display replacement, they couldn't do it, they don't have new displays ...
This what is happend in this case is dissapointing.
I don't recommend buying S8 until Samsung clarifies this problem.
Guard S8 is a marketing fake.
Now I have "magnificient" phone with "red tint" for 930Â€.
It was not my first Samsung, but probably my last one ...
I've tried doing that by using S8 guard. They refused. I'm lost for words. Samsung gurantees repair within 2h or new phone - in theory. In reality I was told I can only send it for regular repair that would take around one week and they would just change the screen.
They are all bunch of crooks and frauds - there are no other words for it.
This update is just like a pain reliever. Technically speaking.

You simply made a fool of yourself with that statement and you didn't try to hide it at all.
