my s21 ultra have soft green screen everytime even in AOD. ITS NOT COMPLETELY DARK BLACK. even i turn all themes off it shows every time.

my camera cutout also misplaced. its little bit down from the original place. it can be noticed while scrolling third party app because it overlaps half over the apps. it can also be noticed in lock screen where i have face unlock enabled and white circle is little bit top of the notch while it search for the face. 

my motion smoothness is adaptive but i never get 120 hz feeling. it gets even slower while scrolling and heats up my phone. 

Can anyone suggest me the solution and what is the problem software or hardware?

i have android 13 One ui 5.1 with latest November Security Update

Most time the green screen is an issue coming from faulty hardware, hope your screen wasnt just replaced and as for adaptive smoothness you can check if screen is using 120 hz after activating developer options by opening settings, open about phone then software information ,tap build number 3times and developer options will be activated, open developer options and turn on show refresh rate you will be able to check if really 120hz or 60hz is what your using ... or the last option could be a factory reset incase some malware was installed all will be erased . If that doesnt help you need to visit a samsung outlet
