    So you guys by now are probably tired of seeing these threads but here we go.

    got my iphone 7 gold 32 yesterday in the mail after 4 days of wait(pretty good eh) online order .
    went to best buy today and decided to compare my screen with a model on display there.
    My screen was yellowish than the on display model they had. so i checked if the other iPhone had something in the display accommodation changed but no, nothing filtered! so my question is shouldn't the display be the same as the other iPhone and not yellow? while there isn't anything changed in the settings? should i go get it replaced?
    after spending $1015 on this thing i expected better :/
    oh and not to mention everyone thinking its the iphone 6 hahhaha

    If you're unhappy with the phone, I would absolutely get it exchanged while you're in the return period.

    Have you tried modifying the screen colors yet?

    Go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Display Accomodations -> Color Filters

    Edit: here's a link to an article that may be helpful.

    Display color temperatures vary within an acceptable range. I believe Apple has shifted the default color temp so the displays will be a little yellower than they used to be.

    If you can't stand it, return it. But chances are it's normal.

    I like the warmer screen of my 7+, compared to my 6S+. When I hold both phones up, and look through the two screens with Camera app. The color of the 7+ was much more realistic. The 6S was too blue.

    And the store models do have the screen brightness maxed out as well and add the overall store brightness, might make it appear brighter.

    You'll get used to it. Whenever I look at my iPhone 6 or Nexus 6P, it now feels as if those screens are too blue, instead of this one being too yellow. But in the settings you can pretty much make it exactly the same as the previous models.

    If your screen is even and balanced - it's fine. The issue many people have is that their screens are not even, there is more yellow at the bottom.
