My OnePlus 8 Pro has the Dreaded Green Screen Issue

In late 2020, I chose the OnePlus 8 Pro over the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 primarily because of avoiding Samsung’s Exynos chip. The price also played a role, and I was happy with that decision, until just this Monday, April 18, 2022, when I found my device’s display was giving out this green hue throughout the whole screen, even while in the lock screen. Didn’t drop the phone nor submerged it in water recently. My OnePlus 8 Pro is currently running Oxygen OS 12 (Android 12).

I searched around, and apparently several OnePlus phones may have been suffering from this issue for some time already. Many label the issue as green screen or green tint, although my case was unlike some’s who only encounter the problem when they are on some specific apps. Mine’s green tint is everywhere.
