I have an A21s and overall I'm happy with the phone, however the display does not seem correct.
The colours appear to be 'washed out' and not as vibrant as expected. It's immediately noticeable with the Red of the Camera and Gallery icons, as well as the Green of the Phone and WhatsApp icons.
I realise this is a budget phone, however I've previously owned other A-series handsets, as well as J-series, and I have never experienced a similar issue.
I have tried adjusting the few display settings that exist, as well as some 3rd party tools, but nothing has improved the colour.
The option for 'Screen Mode' does not exist on this model, and there are no clear options to adjust contrast or colour tones
I think it is probably a simple fix, or calibration, for Samsung to make. Alternatively I'm hoping its something that could be addressed in v11 of Android.
Has anyone else observed a similar issue with this model?
And more importantly could someone from Samsung please respond with some advice or to acknowledge this as a known issue? (and hopefully one that is being addressed)
Thanks for the tips, but unfortunately it's not related to the Blue Light filter.
In terms of the 720p yes I'm aware of the screen resolution and type, but I've had similar screens on other A and J series handsets, but they have still had more vibrant colours.
Yes, I see you are right on the AMOLED screens of the previous years handsets. I accept what you're saying about the A21s being a lower quality screen.
Thank you for this answer.
What I still don't fully understand though is that it's not so much that it "doesn't look as good", it's more that the colours are inaccurate.
For example the camera icon that is normally red, instead is washed out.
However, I have seen deeper reds on the screen in other areas so the screen is clearly capable of these more vibrant colours, but for some reason the calibration, or matching, of colours is inaccurate.
Perhaps this is just how it is and it's not a software fix.
My mom's phone had same issue where red was displaying as burgundy. I went to settings/accesssibility/visibility enhancements and turned off color correction. All colors are now displaying the same as my Galaxy.
