Samsung s8+ screen tint issue

Highlighted

Apprentice

Myself and my wife both purchased 2 x Samsung galaxy s8+. The phones are stunning but one thing we both immediately noticed is the tint on the screens. One looks reddish while the other looks nornalish. The whites are meant to be WHITE but in this case they are quite dull and one looks slightly red. This is really bothering me beacause it's affecting the way I view certain things on my phone. I have played about with the colour temperature settings to no success. Is this a. Known issue with the new s8+? Is there any solution or just a case of returning both handsets and switching to another manufacturer who can Actually give consistency across their panels. IMG_20170423_095646.jpg

Mine did have the red/pink tint but just had an update that gave me a bit more control over the red slider in the adaptive screen setting and it seams to be a lot better now it's not perfect along the edges but much improved.

Hi

If you go in to your display settings where you can choose adaptive er then under that is a colour setting. Try turning down the red slider a little.

If your still within any relevant cooling off period then have the phone swapped out.

Hey I have tried the RGB sliders and they just make Matters worse. I thought Samsung was releasing a software update which will allow more control over the colours but I have not yet received this update
