[Galaxy S8/S8+] While using Galaxy S8/S8+, the color of the screen at the edges of Galaxy S8/S8+ appears green and red in color.Is my device faulty?

Last Update date : 2017.05.01

Your device is not faulty. The colors on the curved screen may look different
depending on your viewing position.

 

The slight green tint in color at the edges of the Galaxy S8/S8+ display that
you may observe on occasion
is due to a phenomenon called WAD
(White Angular Dependency) which is due to the inclined curved surface
of the S8/S8+ edge screen.

 

For an AMOLED display, the WAD phenomenon results in the color white
sometimes appearing to have a Green tint, or on occasion a Blue or Yellow,
Red tint when viewing the AMOLED at an angle.

 

But when viewing directly from the front or side, the color will be as expected.
