    I am new to this phone. I have had the other notes and love them. When I am playing around on it and I get a text I notice that the screen turns kind of yellow. Is this normal?

    Welcome to Android Forums @wanda boyce. I'm not a Note owner, but I wanted to welcome you and say hello. I know a bunch of people have the phone and I'm sure they will check in soon enough to help you out. Good luck. :)

    Thank you. I have always had Samsung until the Note 7 was taken away twice, so I went to the I phone but the Note 8 won me over.

    OP,

    are you using the stock text app?
    what carrier?
    did you root? if you don't know what this is, then you probably did not

    do you have the blue filter option enabled under display settings?

    under normal use out of the box, the screen should not change colors unless you have added some app or some such to allow this.

    That's not normal. I'm sitting next to a Note 8 user and he's never experienced that. He's also a very frequent texter. ;)

    Your talking about the whole screen right? If you just mean the text box when you send is yellow that's normal and something you can easily change in Settings on the text message app.

    See if your blue light filter is turned on. maybe the timer is on and it just so happens it came on at that particular time. If not no it's not normal.
