User opinions and reviews

  • Umair

I would request Apple to take advantage of this yellow tint and Green/magenta line issues and sue Samsung as Apple was also sued on throttling issue. Because i am quite sure this is software injected issue

  • Aadrian

Ah I see I see, also to reply on one earlier post, as far as I know it's not possible to downgrade to an earlier patch. But I am not 100% sure about that.

  • Umair

I am saying that despite they are working correctly for normal use but especially the light sensor is causing this tint issue. Because if u quickly lock unlock the mobile then this tint issue appears
