    Apologies in advance if this has been posted, but I didn't see it.

    I got the public Beta last night. Since that time, the wallpaper on my phone has been very subdued--almost gray instead of white as it should be (I'm using the stock wallpaper--the leaf on the white background). Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yes. My screen is considerably dimmer even in full brightness. It is unreadable now in sunlight.

    I had this too. Turned out I had "reduce white point" turned on in the settings. I turned it off and everything is fine now.

    This. At first my screen was darker than normal and again, reduce white point was enabled, must be a bug that it's enabled by default.

    Thanks for this. I've managed to find that option and all is back to normal. Now just the battery drain to see to!!

    I am unable to find the setting "reduce white point". Is it somewhere in display and brightness?

    Never mind, I found it in Accessibility

    This is what my screen looks like. Gray. Hate it.

    Strange, it worked for me.

    Your screen looks normal to me.

    I was soooo excited. But no it's definitely not normal. It's super gray looking in real life.

    Did you try the tip mentioned here? I'm curious as to whether that works for you.

    This usually happens to me on every update however I normally fix it by moving the wallpaper around in the settings but this time it didnt work :(

    I'm having the same issue.
    I just went with a darker wallpaper. If I want to use a gold, pink or or white I can see the ugly gray.

    That's what I wound up doing. Sucks though. My phone is white. I prefer light, colorful backgrounds.

    Totally agree! I'm hoping it's just a bug for now.
