Asus Rog Phone 3 Black Crush Issue after later update .70

Star II
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: Asus Rog Phone 3
Firmware Version: 17.0823.2008.70
Rooted or not: NOT
Frequency of Occurrence: ALWAYS
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Youtube, Prime Video, Sony Liv
I bought Asus Rog phone 3 on 29th Sept. I got the latest update in my first boot only.
True blacks are not there while playing video on online platforms like Youtube, Prime Video, Netflix, etc. I tested many apps. Among them, one waas MX player. I tested online videos on MX Player and surprisingly they were working absolutely fine (no black crush issue). But black crush issue persists on every other apps even after the update.
I enabled "Disable HW Overlays" option in Developer Mode. The black crush issue solved completely in every app. But since the screen composition is now being handled by GPU, I faced inaccurate color in many 4k HDR videos on youtube.
You guys may also try enabling the option. It will solve your black crush issue but with its own side-effects.
So, the display quality isn't at par and I want a confirmation from ASUS or developer community that it can be resolved 100% via OTA update.
My Question:
Since I have a window of mere 4 days to file a return, should I return the phone? Please help.
