I am seeing improvement in black crush too. Need to test. Others your opinion
Red tint still there for me, black crush needs to be checked. They haven't mentioned anything about display in the log.
Edit: black crush no change
Me too....... ...
Nope I can confirm Red tine is gone now at least for me
Red tint is still there as well as black crush ...no change in display part..only good thing is we are now updated to February security patch.
It should have been March, we are already at the end of March.
Y'all are never happy with anything you're given are you?
The expectation of FOTA is high. Next there will be demand for April Security patch since Google will push out april soon.
December 2042 security patch ETA wen
People are getting quite paranoid about security updates. Honestly security updates don't mean much unless there is a major vulnurability, which doesnt happen that much. Hell even the linux kernel itself is full of volnurability but hey, lets complain about having a meaningless security patch late D:
What have we been given exactly? There was only a patch upgrade which is a also month old. At least we can point that out. And if even patches are meaningless, the update was meaningless, apart from countries for which network support was added. Stop defending everything.
I mean the patchlog is quite clear I think, security update, some camer abug fix, some system tweaks here and there. While nothing huge, it makes sense because they mostly work on A11.
Which youtube video do you see black crush if you can look? I don't think I see any black pixelation, just black if scenes are too dark.
I think screen looks better after the update, seems better contrast, not sure if they up the brightness limit. Less red on darkest mode if not gone
Mostly features comes with a new android version/OEM ui version
Unless the phone is new I don't think many add features midway, it's mostly about fixing bugs and focusing on optimisation plus improving carrier support
Update hasnt touched the display to my knwoeldge so you're probably suffering from placebo effect.
As for perfect example: "Batman 2021 trailer" on youtube will do, it starts color banding about 35 - 75% brightness and on 75%+ the blacks become dark grey. On below 35% you basicially cannot see anything anymore.
Ok thanks for the update. Is red tint persist on your device after this update
fyi, you can disable the red tint by going to developer settings and toggling the disable hardware overlay switch to on :)
Yes, I didnt bother trying to remove completely it as for my experience the red tint makes my eyes not strain at ultra low brightness level. It does start at a lower brightness than stock tho.
Thanks I now see some black crush, pixelated black, in the trailers... 😢
I mean it's for many not a dealbreaker as most people don't really notice, but for those who watch dark movies in low lit room it's a problem. No worries tho, this it not hardware, it's purely a software issue, so it's totally fixable which I have already proven and sent to some people. ASUS will most likely fix it eventually, just patiance :)
Yes I'm ok not need it to be perfect for dark room viewing, I can view in medium brightness if they can tune a very well. I just thought my screen didn't have black crush, I don't notice it, just faintly in the video trailer you said. But then that video did not have hdr label in youtube format, so perhaps that video is not very good as an input source.
I do hope asus can release the software to kernel update the screen, but I don't have much hope.
1. They want you to buy rog 5 that has very good screen
2. Perhaps it is they had to pay more for license to tune the screen kernel, and likely they wouldn't do it
