Samsung Galaxy S8+ Android flagship facing display problems

Many South Korean customers who just received their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ pre-order units claim their new handsets have display problems - excessive red tints on the screen, to be more specific.

Last year, quite a few owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge flagship encountered various display issues not long after acquiring their new phones. Now, multiple Korean customers are facing display-related problems with their new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships, reports ZDNet.

Many images showing the problem surfaced online on South Korean online tech communities such as Ruliweb and Ppomppu, and "Galaxy S8 red screen" was a top search term on South Korea's most popular search engine, Naver. However, ZDNet also reveals that "A Samsung spokesman told local media that the red tint is not a quality issue, and that customers can simply go to the settings menu to change the configuration."

On the other hand, some customers who visited service centers to fix the problem were apparently told to change their phones. Samsung did not confirm this yet, so we will probably hear more in coming days. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ still have to reach most markets, so if this red screen issue is a serious problem, we will surely hear about it again.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
