At least samsung is proactive to fix the issue.
Not like Apple which reluctantly refuses to order a recall of their battery in iPhone's catching fire.

Either nonexistant, or if any reported, under 0,5% of devices affected.
On the other hand seems this obviously existant problem of tinted screens affects at least 30%, and at most 70% of devices produced.
Googl the subject on yt, one guy got 10 devices, of which 4 were affected. Other one here exchanged 7 devices before getting the unaffected one,... etc, etc

Why dont you offer your Â“factsÂ“ of sony/lg phones... moreMy idea of facts are pretty spot on despite your irrational offers of what they should be and claiming of otherwise.
Why don't you go do some research on the relevant topic rather than acting as if no other issue on any other phone ever existed and denying everything.
Either you know sony had similar issues and can't admit it. Or refuse to look it up because you want to stay blissfully ignorant

lol, 27 Apr 2017its not their company. it shared with panasonic and toshiba tooIts a JV between Sony, Toshiba & Hitachi. But does it matter if they wholly own it or not? JDI is the biggest supplier of iPhone LCDs.

And hello....basic screen mode??????????????

And I have no clue what you mean by grey, as each individual pixel can easily display grey through delivering low wattage to all subpixels within that pixel.

Well with true white color deal is not so easy. In real life place white color temperature various depending on day time light and weather conditions. Its calling white color balanse. So white color can divide for parts depending on day time wheather and place artifical light sources. Simply warm white in kelvin temperature (k) scale is 2000-3000k cool white 3100-4500k and daylight 4600-6500k. Naturally morning white is warm 3500k midday with sun cool white 5500k cloudy day 6500k white. And some day parts with really warm white sunrise sunsets 2500k. Other white color balanse depending on place artifical light source color in kelvin temperature (k) scale. So Samsung making red tint screen making warm white like sunset or sunrise. Warm white is healty and good for eyes evening and night time helping sleep well relax for eyes. But in day time and cloudy day it screen may will looks weird and not normally depending on people screen color acceptable and taste. So people may should turn of red tint display if dont like how looks and let people own control screen. Or make screen white color balance more automatically depending on daytime weather conditions and places artifical light sources. Here would be helpful full color spectrum ambient light sensor which sense all day all light conditions. Apple will put full color spectrum ambient light sensor for next iPhones. So for now for my personal screen color taste Samsung red tint display is first time very good job after bluish and violet screens which is not healty for eyes. But Red tint should make control and manage manualy for screen tint what people need now and like. So basic mode should be red tint with manual screen tint control possibility. If they will fix it making basic screen looking cold bluish over 6504k white it allso will be bad. So will be careful samsung and didn't make another mistake. Even close 6504k white looks bluish for evening so make it warmer i think should be good 3000-3500k. But not colder then 4000k.
Georgio, 28 Apr 2017For sure I had more phones than you kido.Well which is it then? You either never used any or you lied and exaggerated in your comment? Make up your mind
Saying that the red tint is due to "natural differences in color" with AMOLED screens is just completely bogus.
This is about quality control pure and simple. Any screen can be color calibrated. If Samsung calibrated each screen to a standard color level, before it left the factory, there would be zero issues.
Samsung of course is not alone. Pretty much every phone manufacturer, including Apple, is lazy about this. Google was pretty good on some of the earlier Nexus phones about doing very careful color calibration but lately they've dropped the ball. And Nokia did it very well on the great 808 and 1020, which still have the best screens every put in a phone.
The truth is, color calibration is another step in the manufacturing process and if companies can avoid doing it well they save a little money, speed up the process, and make more profits. That's a deliberate decision that they make.
Usually it works out fine, because most people don't notice subtle color differences, don't know what a properly calibrated screen looks like, or don't care. But sometimes when the screens are off by enough (or when the fickle media picks up on a story, because right now, after the Galaxy 7 debacle, everyone is salivating for Samsung to screw up again), then the decision not to calibrate properly comes back to haunt you.
Me, 27 Apr 2017Ohhhh!
gsmarena mesured 600 nits max for S8 and S8+, not more.
And being an AMOLED display, ... moreSorry bout your luck but they can reach up to that.
And oh no. Mean after years of use it might only reach 900 or 950??? How terrible.
