    There is some hubbub about red tinted displays. Anyone seeing this?

    It's not a widespread issue regarding Samsung. That's a cause of an amoled display. Amoled is more of a lottery than lcd. That's why there's display settings to balance the color. I mess with mine every time I get a new Samsung device.

    It's actually just a software calibration issue. Nothing to do with amoled...I mean it is but it's not a hardware issue.

    Actually quite a few users reporting it. Definitely defective devices. No "fire engine red" jokes please.

    There are multiple people on Reddit seeing red tint on the edges only and will be replacing the phone. Some are only on one side.

    Ugh...yep I definitely have a red tint around every edge. It is minimal but still there. Are they having luck with exchanging the phone? I guess I'll have to do that tomorrow... So annoying.

    Edit: just realized that we got these before release...do the carriers have them at the store yet to even exchange?

    Mine had a slight tint to it, just go to setting>display>screen mode>color balance. I slid the red color slider down almost all the way to make the white bright and crisp. Web pages and photos look just fine after making the adjustment. A friend thought theirs was fine until I set mine next to their phone after making the adjustment and our display brightness levels were the same and neither phone had a screen protector. Also where the screen curves at the edge you may notice slight color change but that is simply catching reflections by the changing curves of the screen. Before I did the adjustment it was very faint but I'm into photography and work with photoshop a lot so I'm used to noticing the slight tints. The tint was not nearly as bad as the one in this photo.

    Mine has the reddish tint around the edges. I adjusted the color balance turning the red all the way down and still see some reddish tint around the edges. I know that the stores will not have any to exchange any time some so I may call customer support and see what they can do.

    Yeah mine isn't that bad but when I turn down the red it doesn't do anything for the edges... I'm just wondering if I should waste time going to Verizon if they even have to exchange right now... I showed my gf and she hardly notices it and thinks I'm overreacting but it's driving me crazy lol

    Mine has some red on the edges but for me it is not worth hassle to go to store and ask for exchange unless Samsung is recalling it...

    Hey everyone! I am having the issue with a red/pink tint around the edges of the phone. Changing the color balance so does not fix the issue. I am on Verizon Wireless.
    I showed my GF and she thinks it is hardly noticeable and that I am overreacting, but it is driving me crazy.

    My question is that because we received these before the official release date has anyone been successful in exchanging theirs out yet?

    Mine had red tint all the way around edges....about an 1/8".. more noticeable at top and bottom. I could see it right away when powering on.
    I turned red all the way down and that did nothing. Called Verizon and getting replacement, I've never had to do that before...shouldn't have to worry about something like that on an almost $900 device
