Consumers have reported problems with their device screens before. For example, users stated that a green line appeared on the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s display following a system update. These repeated issues indicate that the appearance of pink or green lines on the display could be linked to software updates.
This kind of problem is not exclusive to the Galaxy S21 series and has previously affected users of the Galaxy S20 lineup. Following numerous complaints, Samsung provided free display replacements to those affected. Now, the question arises whether the South Korean company will follow the same policy once again.
Samsung should thoroughly investigate the issues related to the May update for the Galaxy S21 series. They need to offer a clear explanation to users and ensure the safe installation of the update. Additionally, they should guide users who are experiencing problems with faulty screens. Customers who have invested a significant amount of money in these devices deserve a reliable product that meets their expectations.
