We all know there's no physical difference between the 4 and 4S screens. However, I noticed that my 4S screen just seems to be more vibrant and "pop". I did a visual comparison with my daughter's iP4 and we both noticed it.

Anyone else notice a difference from their 4 to 4S?

I noticed the opposite.

It's just a lottery as to what screen you get on the 4/4S.

Lucky me! Looks like I got one of the "good ones."

I've also noticed that the home button is not as recessed as the iP4 and is much more responsive.

I am thinking it might be more of software difference. Maybe the calibration or color profile is different. But the 4S does source multiple suppliers for their screens to produce higher output so there might be a difference there.
