Might be the oled glass but this is quite pricey. Tip, point a uv led at it and view off axis, if only part of screen fluoresces it has internal damage.

I had this same problem too. I just restarted my phone and the colour went back to normal.

Sounds like you killed the LCD screen in the fall. Are you up to fixing your phone your self? Do you have the patience and the tools? If not you should try to find someone who can fix it for you.

If your up to it you'll need to review the IFIXIT guide Samsung Galaxy S III Front Panel Assembly Replacement and locate a new Front Panel Assembly.

@mint frost, yes that should fix it. A new display is around $60 USD and it is not to difficult to repair. Here is the guide for it.

Sorry, that won't help. Somehow you damaged the screen, time for a new one.

My phone had a purple outline of a box in the middle with spots mainly on the edge of the screen and restarting didn't do anything. I didn't drop it or spill anything on it so what do I do?

Most likely your screen is damaged, you'll need to replace it.

Use blower . Hot air at low power for constantly few hours. It will make that water in the display causing pink smudge gone for sure. In sha Allah..
