Hi.

 

Recently my screen seemed to be a bit more yellowish than it used to be. I also compared it to another phone.

I have Night mode/Blue light filter disabled (in Google Play Books, too).

This is kinda annoying, and I can notice it on my Home screen background, too.

You can see this especially when swiping-down the menu and having settings (or some other app in dark mode) opened.

 

How to fix this permanently? Is Samsung working on a fix if it was an update issue?

@Phone_User56: Sorry to hear that you're experiencing this issue. If you go to Settings > Software Update, are any updates available that might address this issue? Similarly, if you go to Settings > Biometrics and Security > Other Security Settings > Security Policy Update, is option toggled on? 

If no updates are available, can you try going to Settings > Display > Screen Mode > White Balance, and moving the slider to the left to see if this helps. Also, if you tap on Advanced Settings and have a play around with the Red Green and Blue sliders, do you notice an improvement?

Is Samsung even working on this or do they want us to buy new phones? Can I get a response at least from an official moderator or admin?

 

That yellowish tint is a well-known issue and Samsung acts like they don't know anything about it. I wouldn't say if I had a 10-year-old phone, but not a 2 year old one.

You may have got a corrupted download but easily fixed by backing the phone up to your Samsung account or do a backup to your computer using Samsung Smart Switch, then do a factory reset

 

Hope this helps
