Galaxy S6 edge+: Why does the colour of the screen appears slightly green at the edges?

Last Update date : Nov 24. 2020



Q : While using my Galaxy S6 Edge+ , the colour of the screen at the edges of my Galaxy S6 Edge+ appears slightly green in colour. Is my device faulty?


A : Your device is not faulty. The colors on the curved screen may look different depending on your viewing position.
The slight green tint in colour at the edges of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ 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 Galaxy S6 Edge+ screen.


For an AMOLED display, the WAD phenomenon results in the colour white sometimes appearing to have a Green tint, or on occasion a Blue or Yellow tint when viewing the AMOLED at an angle. But when viewing directly from the front or side the colour will be as expected.
