Can you give an example of the video?
Also, do you have night mode on? Also, do you have Developer Mode on? If so, turn this off and try again.

Tint occurs both while developer is ON and when OFF. When night mode is ON, the tint becomes even more pronounced..
Similar thing is being reported on OP7 phones. So it's probably the refresh rate or the Android 10 update.

Hi @Thunder Emperor
Can see this, but this is across devices. Not an issue I can say, let me still see if we have an update on this.
