It's been two weeks since I swapped my Samsung S10 Lite for the S21 Ultra. I have a habit of working at night in complete darkness. With the S10 Lite I had no problem with this, I worked with the screen at minimum brightness and my eyes did not get tired. After upgrading to the S21 Ultra, when working in total darkness, I feel very uncomfortable for my eyes. The first thing I did was turn on the Eye Shield and thought I would get used to the flicker of the new screen. But even after two weeks of use, I was not used to it and my eyes began to hurt more. I started to search different forums for information about this problem and found that I was not the only one who got eye pains while working with the flagships starting from the S20 series. On YouTube there is a lot of evidence that Samsung flagships flicker in the unacceptable range for safe use in total darkness. And they also point out that mid-range phones do not experience such problems. Samsung, when will you add technology like "DC Dimming" to the S21 Ultra?

Sure, I tried OLED Saver, but when application is running I can't make a screenshot of the screen for my work, because of the specifics of the OLED saver

None of the Display settings help you then?

How about Accessibility settings, like Visibility Enhancements?

Settings - Accessibility- Visibility Enhancements

...or there might be something in Developer Options that could help, if you're confident enough to dabble with them!?

Well One UI 4 has extra dim feature if yiu wanna wait.

Or try dropping the screen to 60 htz and maybe fhd to mimic a budget phone and see if it helps.
