    It neither, You are actually seeing the refracted light which appears to be green on the edges. If you wanna test your device with green tint. Use the attached image and gradually decrease your brightness from 25% to minimum

    Hello guys,

    In the past 2 months I had in my hands around 20 phones so I can tell that green tint issue is problem of almost all new and previous generation OLED panels. But some devices were perfect.

    Here is the example:

    Samsung Galaxy S20 - 3 devices with very visible green tint on top right side, 1 device with perfect screen.
    Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus 5g - 1 device without green tint but with very small screen retention (really hardly visible)
    OnePlus 7t - 2 devices with very visible green tint on top side of screen
    OnePlus 8 - no green tint but very visible screen retention
    OnePlus 8 Pro - small green tint, no screen retention
    Google Pixel 4XL - 2 devices with visible green tint
    Huawei P40 - display from BOE, very visible green tint on bottom side
    Xiaomi Mi 10 - perfect display
    Xiaomi Mi 10 lite - hardly visible green tint but it's there
    iPhone 11 Pro Max - hardly visible green tint but it's there

    *Green tint - visible on grey background when brightness set less than 30%

    *Screen retention - my way of testing - I set brightness on around 60%, open home screen with icons on it, wait 30 seconds and then open Google Chrome with dark mode.

    Most of the green tint issues can be solved by setting display to 60HZ. I tested it and it really made a big difference on 80% of devices. Especially on Samsung devices when they were set on 120HZ I could see very visible green tint but when set to 60HZ it was almost completely gone.

    Speaking of black crush, it happens only when HDR content is played on Netflix. Similar dark HDR content from YouTube plays smoothly. So I guess black crush occurs due to some kinda mis-calibration.

    Anyone facing issues on WhatsApp? For me, the screen goes blank while switching between WhatsApp call screen and other apps. Also, while checking the status again the screen goes blank.
