S8 Dark colors not uniform in homescreen

 I'm using a black image as my wallpaper and it fades at the top of the screen, creating some weird lines. It only happens in the homescreen, so I hope it's a software issue but I don't know, does anyone else have this problem?IMG_8002.JPG

This is my dark wallpaper @PedrooG and I've not noticed any fading. 

Can you try  / have you tried another dark wallpaper ?

Yeah I've tried other ones, also the wallpaper is completely black in the gallery, so I'm pretty sure that's not the problem :s

Ok.

 

It could be an imbalce with pixels on your screen _ maybe. 

 

If this was my situation I'd try the colour tests via go over to your dial pad and type in *#0*#, this will bring up a number of tests. At the top are colour named panels that can help your screen. 

 

If that does not help then a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Location can run further diagnostics on your phone.

I'm having the same problem! Im not sure why it happens as ive also viewed the photo in the gallery and the dark colours seem fine, but when i set it as a home wallpaper it has that weird interference. I would really like to know why and how to fix it!

I have thr exact same problem on s8. Those weird green lines that exists only on homescreen. Not anywhere else.

I had same problem with note 5 where instead of green lines i had weird grey tint on the entire top which used to fluctuate anr looked ugly. 

Please raise the issue. samsung amoled screens face a lot of problems. Many of the people i know have green or pink tints on their s7 edge and many have screen burns, leaks, what not. as for s8, i gave i for replacement as i noticed it the day i bought it. But there is no guarantee it wont hapoen again. Samsung needs to address their custoners for the problem.
