Samsung has been building up some reputation for the company recently after the Note 7 debacle of last year. Samsung recently launched the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 in US as well as the Indian markets. The users of the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ were reporting that their devices have a strange red-tint on their devices which is more than normal.
