    Anyone notice the subtle difference between the different displays. One of them seems brighter but more yellow, the other has more accurate whites but seems a bit dimmer. Anyone notice?

    Is there any way to find out display manufacturer on the iPhone?

    I saw this issue with the 4S, mine had a cool white display and my wifes had a warmer hue.
    It's all about preference and I thought photos and film looked more natural on hers.
    I don't think one is better than the other.

    Is it not that the warmer hue makes it seem like it's not as bright?

    The weird thing is, I think the yellowish one is the brighter one.

    I took my phone into an apple store and compared it to the display models. Mine was defintely a crisper AND brighter white compared to the display models. I do wonder if its a Sharp, LG, or Japan display.
