    Is it just my s8+, or are others full screen color balance flipped? For me when I move the slider to the right where it says warm, my display actually gets cooler, and moving it to the left where it says cool, my display gets warmer, like it's flipped. Very weird. Any of you experience the same?

    I'm on TMobile by the way and got the update this morning

    I don't have that. I do get the green/blue bar at the top when I lower edge colors. On the sides it works perfect though.
    It kept my previous slider settings and now looks a tiny bit better on the white. I don't need to lower the temp bar, gets too dirty then. Overall good Whites now, but tilting the screen still gives a red haze over the display. I guess that will never go away.

    I immediately saw a red tint, albeit faint, in my S8. Then, comparing it with my S7 Edge, I realized it's not that prominent. I guess the calibration of both screens is different, and after using the S8 for a while I noticed that the s7e screen is a bit green.

    All in all, the screen looks great, no issues such as banding (which my s7 has), so I would't risk an exchange that could or could not solve the red hue, which might as well be related to OCD, and end up with a screen with other problems.

    Looking back at this update I must conclude that my borders are unevenly coloured. Right+top is more red than left and bottom, so adjusting the edges will still show this unbalance since it changes all borders at the same level.
    Also tilting my device slightly gives a cheap looking red hue, I have to hold it straight not to be bothered by it, but people looking over my shoulder immidiately see it as a red tinted screen, or like salmon.
    I will wait some more for news about any further screen fixes from samsung, but suspect I simply have a faulty screen.

    Have red on my s8+. And the Tmo update from last week to patch it did squat.

    Bring your device back. I did, not gonna settle for a half baked screen, or uneven coloured borders.

    I can't adjust mine anywhere near tolerable, even after the update. This is my replacement, the first one was worse. I'm done with Samsung.

    My carrier is sending me a return kit. They are going to refund me. I have an LG G6 on the way to replace it.

    I received the update and it eliminated the red - when I engaged the maximum "cool" setting. However, now on the opposite side , where the screen wasn't red, it is overly blue and clouding the right edge a bit. I've literally tried every demo unit I could get my hands on - they all had the red. The Verizon guy cut me off at opening four boxes, all of which had red borders. I on my second unit, pissed off, and wondering how anyone got lucky enough to get a normal screen. Sidenote: I actually did find one single s8plus that was normal. Interestingly, it didn't have the same font or icons as mine. I asked the Verizon dude and he said it was a preproduction unit they got in advance of launch. Shrug.

    It was slightly noticeable on mine before the update, now even less. I'm not sure whether people are hyper-sensitive or whether some really are much worse than others.

    AT&T update improved my pink borders a lot. There's still a hint of it due to refraction, same as on my S7Edge, but the look of the display being "stained" is gone. In the stores I saw demo units were afflicted regardless of size. S8's had it too.

    I ordered both an s8 and an s8+. The s8 had a red tint all over the screen and a yellowish zone at the bottom left corner. The s8+ was a mess: pink edges and top of the screen. Even the whole display had a grainy texture. I returned both, and am not coming back.
    What's going on with Samsung's QC??

    You have the first 30 days free for samsung plus care or whatever they call it. I am sure they would do something about that. It is free doesn't mean you should be stuck with a piece of trash. Plus the 1 year warranty.

    It's actually just a software calibration issue. Nothing to do with amoled...I mean it is but it's not a hardware issue.
    Oh it's a hardware issue. When parts of my s8+ has it but my s8 doesn't, I don't believe that at all. And this software patch dis nothing to fix my s8+

    I have already contacted them. Because samsung themselves gave me the phone for testing and feedback, they won't replace it for a red tint issue. It's not that bad. But noticeable on white screens. Because it was a free test phone and I have to go through the insight program for any issues, they treat this differently from regular purchase.
