    Does the text look any sharper(better) on the 5 than my 6?

    Can't tell if it's my eyes but the 5 seems a tad sharper. Thoughts? Thx.

    Negligible difference in text sharpness. If anything, I'm seeing a different color tone common with different batches.

    That's the contrast ratio difference.

    Could be but not necessarily. Some screens are more yellow and some more blue even between batches of the same model. We get this every year.

    I kinda see what you're saying.

    Looks smoother in that pic.

    Compare it to other floor models then decide I say.

    My first 6 had an obvious dark spot not too far right of the status bar time.

    Returned and waited for another batch.

    This one is slightly warmer at bottom and if a dark spot is there it's tucked by the battery indicator.

    I compared settings menu and google.com on Safari between lots of floor models and preferred mine to about 80 percent of them. Mine looked better than a few 6+ even. So much dang variation it's hard to know what's up!

    I guess you put up with what you can tolerate.

    I also miss color profiles and jb. My 5 and rmini got some serious screen ugliness going on without it.

    I found the difference between the sharpness of my iPad Mini (1st Gen) and iPhone 6 Plus to be HUGE compared to my iPhone 5. Even though there should already be a huge difference, I noticed a bigger difference with the 6+ for some reason. However comparing the 6+ to the 5, I found little difference
