Q: The screen colour of my Galaxy Note8 appears slightly reddish. Why and what could be done about it?

A: Note8 is using Super AMOLED type of the screen because this type of the screen provides subtle and rich colours.

While it is in the adaptive display mode, Note8 will automatically optimize the color range, saturation .and sharpness of the displayed image.
If you prefer to modify/adjust the screen colour balance as per your own preference please follow this


On Apps screen, tap SETTINGS > Display > Screen mode > Full screen Colour balance. Then, adjust full screen colours of display to Cool or Warm tone depending on your own preference.






※ Please note color balance can only be adjusted in Adaptive display mode.


Through Advanced options, you can also adjust each value of Red, Green, Blue color for full screen color balance and this feature had been improved to optimize more broad and detailed the colour range, saturation and sharpness of display in comparison of previous software version. If further adjustment is needed near the edges after adjusting the full screen colour balance, you can adjust the colours at the edges of the screen to change the appearance of white tones.


Tap Screen edge colour balance menu





Adjust the colours at the edges of the screen. Optimizing screen edge colours may take up 10 minutes
and your device may restart up to 2 times to apply your adjustments. Do not turn off or leave the
screen during the optimization.
