Yes. Mine got that blue line and white screen issue. I turned off always on display, auto brightness, etc. also replaced the machine made screen guard to a normal glass type screen guard. Now the issue is not popping up much

bro did you get any green lines after updating? or have you seen AU variants having the green line issue? Can you please tell me?

Does anyone know whether the S20 5G AU Japan variant has the green line issue after updating?
