Oneplus 8 pro display issues

  1. Ozymandias_Osiris , via OnePlus 8 Pro , Jun 24, 2020 :


    And all those hundred posts are the same image with Chrome; who decided that Chrome is a good thing to test in?, why no one is showing the same results in other apps or solid colors?. Again, get your facts straight and show me that the black bar is across any app and not only Chrome, otherwise we are losing time here.

    There are thousands of ant-vaxxers and flat earth believers, and that doesn't mean they are right either.

    Dude stop it,I have that damn line and I can see it in twitter, in display tester in any apps that uses some type of low color,from grey to dark red if I put my brightness to 1%.People are using Google cause there its the most visible and easiest to check

    As I said, why only with grey and why only with apps that follow Material Design?, why no one is showing the same behaviours with other colors or at different brightness?, or even in videos in fullscreen?, why you guys put so much effort in demonstrate some dumb things in a non real-life scenario?, or maybe I'm just different because I don't use my phone at 1% brightness with a grey image the whole time.

    If it's a hardware problem, then when changing to landscape in full video mode, you could see the a black bar. I see a lot of videos in YouTube in Netflix before going to sleep in really low brightness, and the only thing I can notice time to time is some black crush, but other than that, no problem with my unit and I was one of the first ones to buy the device back in April.

    OLED based screens have all some issues, and only 5% of the worldwide production is "perfect" we can say; I have tested the screens of all my phones for the last 5-6 years, and all of them have some uniformity, black crush and ghosting issues: this is part of the OLED nature. In the last year I had a Galaxy S10+, Pixel 3 XL and S20 Ultra, and all of them have the same "problems". You guys haven't used OLED screens before or what?

    You guys believe whatever you want, but most of the images I have seen in this forum are from screens that look acceptable and you guys are cracking your heads for something trivial. Of course there will be always defective units with real problems, but that's a different topic.

    Yes, I too feel the same. If it is a hardware issue then even at 60 FPS that grey horizontal bar should be visible but it's not. It's the very first time one plus came up with a device which has the capability to run the device at 120 FPS. We can say company might have made some mistakes/error while calibrating mobile screen. What r your thoughts???

    .guys while scrolling through the comments in dark mode in low brightness can you see the grays turn blue or is it just hardware defect in my unit?

    This is only my assumption, it is that the place where we see the black bar is the same place where the status bar appears, there is no need for refreshing that particular row to 120 hz all the time so at time ofnormal usage it stays at 60hz and when we use that part for an example watching a video it refresh quick which we couldn't see that bar.Only at low brightness we can notice the difference of 60hz and 120hz Because the bar is at 60hz we couldn't see the black bar at 60hz. Simply am coming to the point that it could be a hardware limitation to lessen the battery consumption variable refresh rates on the display. Next is the green tint, it could be a reason that it can happen when we messed with the advanced settings in the display settings.

    You are right about the landscape thing, if it was a permanent black bar issue it wud be present in landscape also, but it disappears... Apart from a slightly visible bar in portrait mode, I don't have any issue in my unit. Mfg date is June, 2020. Purchased from Amazon first sale in India.

    According to you It is Google material desig. Then this the pic of Lock screen and black bar is clearly visible. Anything to say ?

    I believe that's Notch design - grey horizontal line. If you have used any other oneplus device maybe 6T or 7T it has water notch design!!!
    Even if you put either device screen brightness at 0% you will see very same horizontal bar at top.
    Once you disable the notch under settings that bar vanished. Try it with your device and share your thoughts!!!

    I too checked when the phone is placed in landscape the bar disappears!!!
    By the way r u able to see a black bar horizontally??

  14. rachit_asia , via OnePlus 8 Pro Glacial Green , Jun 30, 2020 :
    No no. Even the vertical one is minor and barely noticeable by eyes. When we click the photo only then it is visible...

    By naked eyes it's hard to figure out. One needs to really go in a dark room and then lower the brightness to zero.
    only then u will be able to see that bar.

  16. rachit_asia , via OnePlus 8 Pro Glacial Green , Jun 30, 2020 :
    Even by doing that it was hardly visible, at least in my handset...
    I am eagerly waiting for the next update where they enable the color filter camera...

    I believe you are right, because I've downloaded a few testing (Screen/display) testing apps, and Touchwood, none of tuem show ANY Grey spots, or any such pixel differences, even in the Headers .... But i do feel, software calibration can help reduce this issue with the Google apps...

    I have done a lot of tests with the screen, and so far I think is some Material Design thing or maybe some logical separation of the navbar from the rest of the screen and that's why in some cases it could look a little bit different.

    As long as is not hardware, things can get solved via software if needed.
