    Hey guys ; looking for abit of help .. Im not really sure what the hell is going on with my S5 ?

    K , yesterday . The phone was working perfectly , after I plugged the phone to charge then this all started ( if your wondering ; the charger is the factory Samsung charger , came with the phone )

    Yeahh ; I noticed after I left it to charge ! The screen had changed , it was like it had a yellow / greenish tint . I found out when I increase the brightness to full , the color goes back to normal but when I dim the brightness ; instead of going dimmer or darker , the color changes . There's a different array of colors , it starts of with dark green then to orange , red , dark red before finally dimming at a dark blue .. Its really pointless since I cant see **** half the time when this colors are there and who wants to view their screen in full brightness all the time .. Really desperate for some help ; taken it down to a local phone repair store ; they were clueless themselves , they said they could reprogramm the phone which I doubt will work ..

    If you've recovered from this same problem with an S5 ; please help me out .. The phone is literally brand new ; just got exactly a week ago ! Its probably a hardware !

    Help a brother out please !

    Have you tried a reboot to see if that helped? Also, have you installed anything that allows to customize the screen color?

    Thanks for replying .. Factory reset if thats what your asking ; yes I have .. I was so desperate to have this sorted out , I tried everything I could think of ! I even lost all my music in the process just because I thought there was something that could have stuffed up the phone through one of the recent downloads ..

    And no mate ; I have not installed any app regarding screen color changing ; I was very much satisfied with the stock screen on the GS5 ! Only apps I downloaded exactly was Facebook , Viber , Candy Crush and Dumb Ways to Die 2 ..

    From what I've gathered ; could this be a hardware issue , because upgrading it through the software update option didn't seem to do anything ?

    Any ideas on what to do ?
