Anyone having this problem with one side of the screen being brighter? Very noticeable on Grey's and some blues.

Not at all, are you using a custom launcher with a desktop shadowing? Maybe just return it for a new one.

yep mine is the like that..

in settings menu you can actually see that the top is darker "blue" and the bottom is much brighter "blue" tone...

the same problem was on the Note 3 just not so visible because the menues was black toned

Mines similar too. Brighter on left hand side in portrait mode.

I don't see a reason to return it for a new one, because it on all Galaxy amoled devices.. S4, Note 3 and S5... I've had 4 Note 3 not because of faults and the all had this problem some more and some less... but it was there...

In the store I work I've seen it on all Galaxy S4 and note 3 devices... it's especially easy to see on a grey color..

on the S5 its a bit easier to se because of the color they choose for the background color in settings menu, you can actually see that on all the S5 devices I've handled including my ovn. the settings background is darker in the top and brighter at the bottom.. they all had a bit of variation..

Using the dead pixels test app, mine is evenly shaded

However, on the settings menu, the top does seem darker than the bottom. It seems samsung intended it to shade it that way
