Wanted to share this display issue that seems to he affecting a large number of S24 series users (myself included). Gradients are rendered horribly, and the most recent February patch has not resolved the issue. 

You can see what I'm talking about in the attached image. Those squares should not be there, and are not there on my S22 Ultra. 

Since purchasing this phone I have not at all been pleased with the performance of its display, and I strongly recommend everyone skip this generation of Samsungs flagship line

 until they can pull themselves together.

This specific example is not a banding issue.

Take a screenshot of your weather app and post it here, it'll look the same on everyone's screen.

It's a weird bug with Samsung Weather itself.

You're totally right - tested it on my S22U and the screenshot looks like garbage.

Here's a better photo of the banding for those curious20240226_175622_1000004866_1708988197.jpg

I wish I could return mine but am past the 15 day return window. :( I was so hopeful the update would have fixed the image banding issue.20240216_182500_1000021480_1708133106.jpg

Aw :(

If it really bugs you you can try to get it fixed/exchanged, but you won't have a phone for a while then.

Samsung loves to take their time... Took them 2 weeks to refund me after my phone got delivered back to them.

Yeah, I'm thinking about getting it exchanged but I will be in phone limbo. :S [sigh]
