    Hey guys, is everyone receiving this update? I am with t-mobile it says the only change was screen color adjustment and after installing it now has a slider to adjust cooler or warmer screen (under advanced options you still see the RGB bars) plus now it has another slider to adjust the color of the edges only

    I'm with tesco and still waiting as well. Don't know what's causing the delay but wish it would hurry up as I want to see if it does correct the problem so that I can return the phone (3rd replacement) and go back to apple if it doesn't.

    I updated this morning as well. By moving the slider from cool to warn, I didn't see any change in the picture showing.
    Also, the update changed my launcher to TouchWiz by default. When I clicked on Nova it went to Nova home screen. When I hit home again, it went back to TouchWiz home screen.
    It normally asks you to pick a default when you do this. Not anymore. I had to go into Nova and manually change the default to Nova.
    I noticed there was a TouchWiz Home update overnight as well.

    I did not experience your issue. Nova stayed as my launcher post install of latest "red tint" update. Two things to note:

    1. I did the Touchwiz update 2 days ago. Update showed up in Galaxy Apps on Sunday.
    2. I'm on Nova 5.1 beta 6.

    I updated this morning as well. By moving the slider from cool to warn, I didn't see any change in the picture showing.

    Got it this morning at 5:00am when I woke up it was there asking me to update. Glad to report that the red tint (pink) in my phone's edges were easily fixed by just moving the slider one notch towards the left (cooler) from default, and no difference in colors with the change. So it seems that after all, Samsung really knew that it could have been fixed via a software update.

    It definitely makes the display more white, if you need that. Cool

    If you've got a pink/red screen, this should fix it. However, if you have that slight light bleed from the sides, you might want to exchange your device.

    I am out of the loop! I just got this last thursday, and compared to my Mate 9 I thought holy crap this looks red. So I went into settings and had to turn the red completely OFF. Glad it wasn't my old eyes. I got a security patch yesterday, no update though (AT&T)

    i still haven`t received an update, I only see reddish screen if I look from side, if I look directy at the phone, I can`t see any red. Will the update fix it when it arrives?

    It's weird it didn't fix it for me. I have two s8+ and with stock setting one looks white and the other one redish. After the update I modified the settings of the redish one so it looks more or less like the other with stock settings (still white) but when looking at an angle, the one that is white with stock settings looks still white and the one that is white with modified setting still looks redish from the side. I won't move the slider even cooler because now it would look blue.

    The update doesn't fix anything. It's lipstick for the pig. First of all, it only works if you have adaptive on. If you turn on the blue light filter or any of the other modes, the screen defect is back. I'm willing to bet that the next batch won't have this anymore. So if you're ever trying to sell this, re-sale value will be very low. I maintain my stance on this: get it exchanged until you have one without a faulty screen.

    I was in an AT&T store swapping my S8+ for a G6 (today is my 14th day) when I read this thread. I told the rep I changed my mind and walked out. He literally LOL'ed.
