    Just picked up my Galaxy s10 and spent a few days on it, however I believe I might have a problem. The colors on my display especially when on a white screen are dull and look washed out and this is with my settings on vivid. I even compared videos side by side with my Galaxy s8 and you can tell a big difference. My old s8 colors are vibrant and colorful while my s10 are greyed out and a little blurry. Anybody else having similar issues.

    I thought i got a bad unit too, so i went to the store and compared it and it's looks the same, my s8 plus also much whiter, i think samsung removed adaptive mode. While I was in store i also compared it to note 9 and note is much brighter. Blue was turned down alot on s10.

    Is your pre-installed screen protector still on? I have noticed this with other screen protectors on previous phones.

    On my phone it's only whites, so it can be adjusted, if i open some colorful pictures and compare side by side it's looks great.

    I've found this setting to be the best white balance for me. Of course this is subjective but I like it.

    It feels like my phone is on 480p when watching videos to best explain it. I'm going to compare my phone to a retail store and see if all phones are like this

    To be honest, this is likely because of what you are used to. Samsung displays used to be way oversaturated, making them pop. Now they are so much better, and accurate, but if you are used to the colors popping like that, you may be disappointed. But the current display is the best ever made.

    We have really good photo editing monitors, we print professional prints from various places and the colors are just way off. On my note 8 pics look great meaning they look just how she edits them and how they print out on paper. We look at same pic on 3 different screens and the one that is off is on the S10. We are taking it back to att tomorrow.

    You do know these have 45 percent blue light filters right? But either way my screen looks amazing.

    I think the display on the S10 now resembles pretty much what I get on my XS Max but I think I gotta play with the settings a bit more to get it to look as good as that does.

    Hey! I am a photographer as well and was wondering if you switched out for something else. I noticed it is way off and very annoying especially after edits and viewing other pictures. Was there a solution or did you get rid of it?

    How was the comparison? Did you switch out? I noticed this as well as I purchased mine yesterday. Washed out colors and weird discoloration on pictures. As well as bad quality on videos.

    I'm a photographer and on vivid this pretty much matches my calibrated monitor almost perfectly. Just a tad more contrasty and saturated but not much. Are you sure you put it on vivid?

    Really? I haven't compared it to a monitor but still something about it is offish. A little blurred out too.

    Hmmm. True. The white seems yellowish. And Samsung removed Basic mode. Such a bummer.

    Yeah I've compared it a lot and it's great. Also sharpest screen I've seen. Are you sure it's vivid?

    You have the exact problems as me. Blurry videos and washed out colors. I went to my carrier store and went ahead and upgraded to the s10+. He told me their demo phone was like that too
