So I notice something funky today

I'm on Nov sec patch
Dark theme on
If I open the dialler the themes is grey
However if I bring brightness to <50%
Lock my screen then unlock it the theme / colour goes almost purple?

I tried taking screenshots but the result is the same grey colour

Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, it's the way the screen works at the moment. Its why the 90htz was only used at higher brightness levels, but they tried to please the people complaining about it (Nov patch) and here we are.

So yes it's "normal" behavior for now.

Thank you
Guess I can deal with it until they come out with a fix

But this shouldn't happen. The 90hz isn't an excuse. It's a bug. The OnePlus didn't ever have this issue .
I've turned always on display and the issue goes away, but if I get a notification the horrible green returns, I turn the screen off and back on and it goes back to normal ...no tint. It's a really fustrating and rubbish bug

Neither running Smooth Display Option, nor on Force 90 Hz does this purple tint happen on my XL. Tested in pitch black surrounding.

Take off force 90hz just leave smooth display on
No aod, or motion sense and no adaptive brightness or ambient eq

Put the brightness down in a dark room, open the dialler, lock the screen the unlock it

I just tried it on 3 pixel 4xls and all had the same thing
You can see the color change back when you put the brightness back up

Sometimes it doesn't stick but changes back pretty quick
At times it gets stuck purple ish

I can even notice it in normal brightness now, and gets worse as it dims. I've got AOD off. Sometimes the green is there other times I turn screen off and on its not, it's not normal

4 xl

Hopefully Google can fix it with a patch
I guess that's why they disabled 90hz under 75% brightness originally
