  1. Hopefully the issue is fixed here and Samsung doesn’t have to swap the phones ,already their profit margins seem smaller than previous years..

  2. Inconsistencies in the colour gamut of displays, especially for AMOLED screens when we are talking about such huge number of devices is not surprising, I think it isn’t a hardware malfunction and more of a software calibration issue. And confident that the updates can fix it.

  3. finally the good news that everyone was waiting for!! they will surely roll it world wide soon!!
