    Does anyone else with an s9+, seem like their whites are on the yellowish side? Doesn't seem to matter how I play with the colors the whites seem to look like that. No, my blue light filter isn't on. I'd screen shot it but may not look like that on someone else's screen. Thanks

    are you using a screen protector? that could be the issue. are you using the oreo night light feature? if so, disable it. finally, do you have the brightness on the screen turned down, if so, increase it.

    turn off the auto and make the screen brighter and see if it helps.

    as far as the night light, even though it is to enable, you should be able to disable using the same steps

    It seems to be better at full display brightness, but not sure I want it to stay at full brightness.
    And I don't seem to have that option in my display settings just the blue light filter option.
    Using the adaptive display mode other ones don't help either.

    Take it in and compare it to a demo unit. If there is a difference maybe have it replaced or do an FDR first.

    the nite light does give it a yellowish tint.
    come to think of it, it could be the same as the blue light sensor. sometimes I just don't think as clear as other times, me getting old.

    Sounds like a flaw in the device I guess hopefully Samsung gets an update out that fixes it soon. Guess I'll have to live with it till they do.
    No point in turning it in I'm past the 14 day thing and now I'll just a "refurbished" one, that someone else had a problem with and turned in..lol
