OnePlus has just unveiled its first mid-range smartphone in a few years in the form of the OnePlus Nord. The handset is very competitive with a Snapdragon 765G and a powerful Quad-Camera range. Obviously, the Nord is more than just a smartphone, but a whole host of more affordable OnePlus phones. The company is rumored to unveil another OnePlus Nord smartphone with the Snapdragon 690 SoC, which also has 5G capabilities. With new smartphones, new concerns will arise and the OnePlus Nord is no exception. According to reports, Nord users are experiencing problems with low screen brightness. OnePlus just can’t deliver a smartphone without screen problems.
If you follow the OnePlus news, then you know that the recently released OnePlus 8 Pro also had appearance issues. The flagship of the H1 2020 brand had many problems with its screens. The big coincidence is that some issues are also related to using the phone at lower brightness levels. Some users of the OnePlus Nord tool on the Reddit and OnePlus communities share issues with their drive. Obviously, most users have the same color problem when the brightness is below 25%. It is a purple hue that even happened to the people at 9to5Google.
OnePlus is aware of the issue and has already made the following statement:
«Slight discoloration of the screen may occur due to the properties of the AMOLED screen“And he even confirmed that”this is not a quality problem and will not affect the daily use or durability of the screen “.
This is obviously not the answer users expected. Ultimately, OnePlus did not say it would work on a tweak repair. It basically says that this is something that happens with an AMOLED screen. With the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company has reduced the low brightness level to prevent this issue. We expect the same to happen with the OnePlus Nord in the future. The big question is why the same problem happens again with a new smartphone. The company needs to improve the screen calibration process or at least do more extensive testing at each brightness level to determine which ones will be best for customers. Hopefully a software update will be able to address this issue in the future.
We just hope that future OnePlus phones do not come with this problem.
