I can see how it would come off that way, haha.

Unfortunately the SAMOLED displays in many cases either start even at full brightness with or as you turn down brightness, will show a greenish cast. It's a characteristic of the Green subpixels being easier to see by the human eye than either the red or blue subpixels, since our eyes are most sensitive to Green light with a wavelength of about 505nm.
Our eyes are somewhat less sensitive to Red, and are least sensitive to Blue.
Since the subpixels in the Pentile display are dominated by Green, the intention was to partner those Green pixels with both nearby Red and Blue pixels to increase perceived brightness of those other primary colors, and to create a simulated higher resolution with less total pixels. Unfortunately in the first and some later versions of Pentile the intensities of the subpixels and also the placement result in that Green cast.
