    Hi, My Oneplus 8 was performing exceptionally until i started watching videos on Prime Video and Netflx. Every night i watch video content on NETFLIX OR Prime for an hour before going to sleep i was watching the series "Expanse" on my Oneplus 6t in prime before switching to my new Oneplus 8 immediately I noticed that the visuals are not as clear as 6t. I could watch Prime at very low brightness on my 6t but in oneplus 8 even at half brightness most of the visuals was just black. Bright areas are brighter and dark areas are just awfully dark and hence unwatchable on low brightness.. Is this a common issue on HDR 10+ displays or just a problem in my unit. I have tried switching to Amoled Wide Gamut video profike and adding netflix and prime to game mode for video enhancement but to no avail.. PLS HELP. If this isnt fixed i ll return my phone.

    me too having the same issue.... don't know when the OTA will arrive... it's just awful, can't see anything in the dark. If it's Hardwear OP should replace these devices.... spending 55k and getting such a display is shit.
