    Superb screen display on Tab S7 using since 2 Months. i have no issues of colors nor any degradation of screen. Being an Amoled fan . I love the perfect blacks on my Old Tab S5E although more.

    lot of negative Paid marketing is done against top companies before launch of a flagship device by Rival companies

    So I noticed this same green tint issue. Great on the left side and it fades into a greenish tint. I assumed it was the screen but I was playing around with it and it doesn't seem to consistently appear. If I load up the play store, at lower brightness, I see it. When I open the settings menu for the tablet, same grey background and the greenish tint isn't there. The brightness hasn't changed either. I started looking at other grey screens and I see the same thing. I'm not saying it's not an issue but I would think it would be fairly consistent across grey backgrounds at the same brightness. I see it in dark mode in Google apps but not is Samsung apps or even Nova launcher settings. Weird..

    I greys are a slightly different shade but the same brightness. The playstore you can see on the right side. Nova settings and one of my live wallpapers settings are both grey and no greenish tint.

    Anyone else notice this?

    if you're using the S7 vs the S7+ then it's not surprising, LCDs do not produce blacks like AMOLED.
    Also, enabling the "blue light filter" severely degrades the black level. I understand it's useful for those who experience eyestrain reading white text on a perfectly black background, hopefully either Samsung or a community member can change it for those who prefer the best blacks while still attenuating the blue colors.

    I got mine a few days ago and first thing I noticed was a color tint on grey goint to green or yellow, especially on the lower brightness levels. Especially compared with my older Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) also black ist something like anthracite, but not deep black.

    So I downloaded a display test app from Playstore Display Tester, and guess what! Black is really dark black, white is bright white and grey is looking much better with almost no color tint.

    Could soomebody else check it?

    Btw.: Firmware is T870XXU2BUD2 (Android 11).
