    Just noticed this after a week with the phone it might not be a realistic use case for every day having the phone an inch or two from your eye and tilting it to see this pattern

    I had a 7plus that had this going On extreme directly face on

    Everything else about my xr unit and display are great uniformity brightness and whites and build I wonder if it’s worth bothering

    Also already traded in the good 7plus I had for a partial refund towards purchases ...

    Ugh anal retentiveness!

    I guess it’s better than a drastic tint shift

    I often wonder why nobody posts a picture when they’ve discovered the next obscure Apple fault.

    Against white looking at the screen up close (like dial pad in phone app) and shifting the angle of the display

    I guess it doesn’t matter if others have seen it too. My display is beautiful otherwise

    I Just bought an iphone xr and have this problem too. When I slightly tilted the phone, the whole screen covered in a grid of slant vertical lines.
    My iphone is from singapore market. At first i thought my phone is broken, my brother’s 6 plus screen look perfect from every angles. So this is normal with all other xr, right?

    The display is made up of dots called pixels...

    Yep. Saw it on every floor model, of the few I picked up.

    This is bad, I paid a lot of money for this phone, expected a perfect product. Why nobody reviewed iphone xr talk about this :( :confused: Did they take apple’s money or something?
    I can’t take this phone to warranty, I regretted my purchase :(:(:(

    it took me a week to see it off angle, so i dont think its that big of a deal. so long as it wasnt just my unit, which it isnt

    OLED has more problems imo on average
