There's just no incentive to fix it. It's cheaper to put out trash screens and make the contrast incredibly high. Even Apple is doing pwm these days, and OnePlus doesn't allow DC dimming anymore. People think, "look, shiny! bright colors!" and fall for the AMOLED garbage without realizing the damage being done at lower brightness levels.

For A,S,Note and z flip 3 years of OS update and 4 years of security update it's quite impressive if you consider how many models are there

Annoying, simply because I can't stand Samsung phones.
Sure makes the other OEMs look bad though.
