    Same here. Green issue is a bit better. Still having black crush and and uniformity is quite bad. But oneplus said they'd fix that in May. I can still return during the next 2 1/2 weeks. If that's not gone by then I will return.

    Honestly I dont see why OnePlus should fix this. They didnt fix it on the OP 7(t)(pro) until now! Why should it be fixable on the OP8..

    You are right. I played around with it again. It's far from being fixed

    They tuned it somehow but still not fixed completely. I don't expect next update with complete fix until my return period ends. I also doubt they can complete fix their A+ 1 billion colors to look at least like average 2 years old phone. I'm waiting till next Friday and if no miracle comes I'm returning the device.

    Can you tell me what you did that brought the green issues back? I haven't found any yet after the update

    I wasnt having green or red issues on mine but the update changed something for sure as im seeing something similar to what other have been experiencing. The biggest issue ive had was the black bar streak on the top.

    Has anyone noticed light bleed issues on the (lower half) right hand side of the phone? The left side looks completely normal in comparison.

    I received my phone today and noticed this new issue outside of the green tint and image retention issues. The manufacturing date on this is 4/13

    I just used the grey imagine provided in this thread and played around with the brightness.

    But far worse are the uniformity and black crush issues for me. Although it's oled my display still looks like it has clouding :(

    I didn't expect they will show me all amazing "billion colors of screen" on 1 static screen just changing brightness between 0 to 50 percent. It's after latest OTA 10.5.5

    This issue has something to do with how poorly the display handles lower brightness levels. My old Oneplus X would crush blacks at brightness set to below 30%, whereas 8 Pro crushes blacks when the brightness is set below 90%. Since most people have automatic brightness set on (hovering at 40-70% brightness levels indoors) it's a noticeable flaw.​

    The black crush issue is weirder than I thought.
    The test pattern I used: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AnRJtF-isRA_g-R1HCclT_vAZFcCuA?e=RW5C2I

    Black level handling with ~25% brightness. = Looks good, not reference level 16 but still good.

    Black level handling at ~40% brightness. = Black crush. Cannot display even the final 25th column.

    hope you're going to come up with a future proof fix, but regarding punch hole band and screen burn-in issue, as it seems to be more of hardware issue while some people are claiming possible reasons for such : cost cutting in many aspects or poor quality control, maybe both. WE NEVER KNEW ONEPLUS WITH HARDWARE ISSUES.

    Hope the Oneplus 8 Pro Indian units don't show up such issues. Or else, I would not be going for one.
