Even though I adjusted screen color balance through options to improve reddish phenomenon applied from new released software, screen color returned to reddish/yellowish again when blue light filter is on or AMOLED cinema/photo is set. Why is this?

 

Blue light filter feature reduces eye strain by limiting the amount of blue light emitted by the screen, and AMOLED cinema/photo optimizes the color range and saturation to view cinema/photo.

When both features are set, screen color is more reddish than default screen color for each intended purpose and its normal operation.

Color balance can only be adjusted in Adaptive display mode and your adjustment won’t be applied while Blue light filter is on.

When you adjust full screen color balance, you can check explanation regarding this on device in advance
