Today I went to my local electronics store to check out the S9 and S9+. The lighting was pretty dim so I was able to spot it. Both S9 and S9+ had exactly the same issue (crushed blacks). Then I compared with note8 and s8 and they didn't have the problem. So basically the bottom line is that all the phones have this *****. Of course they were display models which are a little different from retail but at least the screen should be the same? Because again neither note8 or s8 have it. =)

Yesterday I got my new S9+ it has the infamous black crush issue and it's quite noticeable. Yesterday I took a screenshot on how the screen looks like. This was before the wallpaper update which fixed the horrible wallpapers. Its weird because you can see it on the screenshot and zoom in and out. But only on S9+. When I put the same screenshot taken on S9 and viewed it on another phone the issue is not seen under same conditions (dark room) So heres how it all looks: First photos is on the other device and rest is on S9 in dark room and last in daylight. As I mentioned its quite interesting that i can zoom in and out and still see it in the screeenshot from yesterday. could someone who have a S9+ put the pink infinity wallpaper on then go in a completely dark room unlock the phone and slowly swipe up to open and close the app drawer? Do you see something similar to what I have here in the picture? You have to swipe it very slowly and look to the upper left corner. It should be visible. It appears and disappears when swiping. But it stays there when you have the app drawer open. To notice it as I said you have to be in very dark room.
