Recently bought a new monitor. And I don't know what to do to get rid of the screen's glare or tint.

Using a random pic to show the difference.

The left-hand pic is from my previous monitor.
The right-hand is from my new monitor. There's an obvious glare

This next link shows the pic from different angles on the new monitor.

You can see the clear change, depending on what angle you look from

I adjusted the brightness & contrast every kind of way, and it's the same thing. Unwanted glare & tinting effects. Changing the color temperature also does not help. So it seems none of these are the issue.

If it's not a setting that'll fix this, what monitor could I buy where the screen doesn't do this. I never cared for this period. Not on a monitor, nor the television screens that do it.

Glare usually has to do with the coating - matte or reflective. Not much you can do about that.

What model monitor is it?

I've picked two pixels to compare the images. Here is the result (RGB): 172 123 127, 164 89 57. The new monitor reduces all canals, but the "B"-canal - strongest of all and the "R"-canal - a little. That's a reason to exchange the device.

Thanks for the info. Do you know if any monitors where this wouldn't be an issue? Or is it a crap shot where some just do this and some don't?

The last monitor I had was a Dell, and I had that for around 10 years, and it finally died yesterday. So now, I have to get a new one, and the issues I am having now are exactly why I kept that old Dell monitor so long.

That almost looks like a defect in the backlight.

We used to by screen protectors in offices where the lights and screen glare conflicted.
