hank_email_isCorrect. Black crush means that scenes get pixilated. The dark scene behavior you talk about is mismatched gamma level, if you have a PC screen and put the gamma setting from 1 to lets say 0.6 (in NVIDIA, AMD or Intel graphics controller) you would make dark grey to black similair to what you see now on your phone, again this is caused by the fact that the OLED screens shifts when brightness is being adjusted.
I realized once I toggle on the disable HW overlay I can now see perfect black on hdr videos now on youtube like before the update.
Is black crush meaning heavy pixelated black pixel? It does not mean the scene is just very dark (but no pixelation)?
If so I rather have asus keep the original calibration, I don't see black pixelation in dark scene on my screen, but do get annoyed when black now become grey and not pure black. In that case a lcd screen is better for even better color at each brightness.
rZEndIf Asus doesn't get this fixed, then I will attempt to make the application, but before that I'll wait as I'm quite certain Asus will get it fixed.
If ASUS not fix. And you make a app, don't matter if was paid or not. And root or not. Provide for who want this fixed. It's very annoying have this device with this issue
