    Akash.... Sorry bro... I checked the same with 5 Screen Testers... And did follow the instructions laid by you... However I didn't find any Green Tint issue with my device..

    Also need to say that the Black Bar is slightly visible though when we run some grey background and that too in the lowest brightness... (guess that was the reason why OnePlus limited the percentage of lowest brightness one can go with OnePlus 8 Pro)... However that margin is very much low... I mean I won't find it even... if I don't care to look so minutely.

    Well another way to look into these issues.... Are we putting all our efforts to go beyond the normal to ensure that our units are actually faulty units... I belief one might not have come across those green tint had the screen test and the colour inversion might not have been done... All I belief... Lets enjoy the Phone Bro... and Cheers... 🙂

    Akash... I am totally positive about the fact that your phone is working perfectly all right...

    no bro its not true...i never went to search for any of the issues..but youll eventually notice it when.you watch netflix or youtube and the content has any dark or grey background....youll end up seeing pixelated videos.that is the only real issue i faced while using the phone...or is it just me?

    I watch videos daily in Youtube, Amazon Prime and Netflix... Never came across these issues...

    However i belief... we should wait for the OTA updates to get the issues resolved whatever be those...

    True, I do like your view on this. I agree, the black bar is not visible in regular usage. The color inversion is the only case where makes it apparent to the eye. Between 40% to 100% I have no issues, the display is just stunning 4k HDR content looks amazing. The only thing that bothers me is looking at the oneplus phone dialer with dark mode on. That pesky little mark of green at night, when I open it to call someone. And some image retention here and there, which goes away. I love everyother thing about the phone... But I just might get it replaced.

    P.S. I know I'm already complaining about the display, But my widevine drm got downgraded to L3 over the weekend. Seriously, I have no clue how. HD content on Prime and netflix is not available anymore. I spoke to OP CC and was assured that the new update fixes a lot of problems, just wait for OTA. If not, I can always take it to service center and technician will be glad to help me out... they said.

    Hi Akash,

    Thank you for the tag. I did a quick check on my OnePlus 8 Pro based on your instructions. However, I could not find any green tint (top bar like band as I've seen in many Google searches). It looked perfectly fine to me.

    However, after switching back to the dark mode (nuanced dark) and if I go to the Phone Dialer app and dial any unsaved contacts - in extreme low brightness (not a real-life brightness that anyone would use), I can slightly spot a top bar connecting the punch hole camera horizontally. But, I literally had to hunt for this issue on my display.

    Other than this, I don't have any problem with respect to the display. Hopefully there will be a new OTA for the India units soon to correct any such display issues that you guys are facing just like Samsung did in their flagship lineup.

    Let me know if you or anyone else want me to share any additional checkups and findings. Happy to share my thoughts here.

    My Ultramarine Blue that I ordered on June 15, all of a sudden jumped from not yet dispatched to arriving tomorrow. When i check the shipping details it is showing that it has arrived at Chennai directly.. I never knew Dharshita Electronics had a warehouse in Chennai. People said they have it in Bangalore and in Gurgaon. Fingers crossed n a little bit excited after losing all my hopes for this product.

    Looks like the specialist team was wrong.

    Same for me buddy. Same timing a well. Even one of my cousin who ordered the same colour phone on June 15 had his phone dispatched at the same time. So i think now only Oneplus has given some Ultramarine Blue phones to Amazon.

    Not yet shipped, although the status changed from Not yet dispatched to "Preparing for dispatch"

    If blue is shipped today, i'll cancel glacial green.
