The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is set to go on sale in just a few days, however a faulty display is said to be included in the box.
9to5 sourced Reddit complaints.
S22 Ultra users who have had this problem have all set their screens to 1440p (QHD) resolution and used Samsung’s natural colour profile. However, if you prefer natural to vibrant colour or want to take full use of the S22 Ultra’s display resolution, it’s unfortunate that it’s apparently required to modify these settings merely to use the phone correctly.
Galaxy S22 Ultra phones using the Exynos 2200 processor, rather than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 version purchased by customers in the United States and China, seem to be affected by the display issue as well. Unless more investigation can corroborate this, it’s likely that the problem is hardware-related. However, a software bug might conceivably impact both versions of the phone.
Samsung may have to give free repairs or perhaps replacements to customers who are experiencing the screen band issue if a software update does not resolve it.
Replacements may be difficult to come by, but it is possible. We’ve previously heard that Samsung’s supply of S22 Ultras is limited, and that those who haven’t pre-ordered would have to wait at least two months.
There seems to be no generally unaffected version of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in our evaluation of the phone, even though we tested it with the Snapdragon version. If you’re considering purchasing an S22 Ultra, take in mind the Reddit user reports above, but also know that the phone is one of the greatest Android phones, and one of the best phones overall, that you can currently purchase.
