Hi there! So I ordered a Samsung A42 5g from a shop in an app, expecting it to have good display since it's Super AMOLED. I didn't expect the display to be so... yellowish. My blue light filter is off at this point, and I switched my display mode to Vivid. However, comparing it to my old Oppo A5s and my sis' OnePlus N10 5g phone makes it obvious that this phone is still more "yellowy" than it's supposed to be. To anyone who bought A42 5g from an official store, is the display really like this?

A screenshot wouldn't cut it since it doesn't show how yellowish my display is. If you took a screenshot of your phone while it's in blue light filter mode and showed it to people who have it turned off on their phones, they wouldn't see how yellowish your display it. How can you not know that?

Last time I checked there was no warranty. I'm thinking of returning this for a refund while it is still new. It's really weird the display is not as white as other phones.

im using an IPS LCD display smartphone and i can notice the difference between an IPS PANEL and Amoled panel. The display is dim light because of crisp black of an amoled screen while the IPS Panel is pure light because of low quality blacks. now if i turn blue light filter is turn on the screen of an IPS Panel looks yellowish dim light because they capture the blue light from being seen in the naked eye so that it can less harm to your eye so that you can sleep easily at night. how much more if it is an amoled screen. that does make sense. if none of this answer this questions then you have to make an expense of screen replacement in repair services except in official store where warranty is still in credit.

Thank you for explaining! Now I've compared my phone again with my sister's, and my siblings have been telling me that my phone's display is actually clear. I guess me seeing this as a bit yellowish is just because this is my first owning an AMOLED phone. I'm still not used to it. I'm glad the problem was just me being a bit overthinking haha. Thank you for your thoughts!
