Why the color on the top left corner of Samsung Galaxy S9/S9's default wallpaper looks like staining when viewing in the dark?

Last Update date : Oct 08. 2020

The phenomenon may be due to the usage of default infinity wallpaper with purple-colored background. When setting the infinity wallpaper from lock to home screen, wallpaper is magnified and simple home screen is provided.

When a high resolution image is enlarged, some area may appear distorted and this is a normal phenomenon.

Beside, the backround image on the lock screen and power off screen may also appear blurry. This is UX concept and is not related with device malfunction itself.
