Hi, I've noticed the whites on my 6 plus display have a pink tint, I notice it more in brighter lighting but not as much when I'm in the house. Has anyone else notice this? I have auto brightness on and it doesn't always look pink but it's very annoying when it does.

Mine has just a touch of it but not too much. I think it's common with LG screens. I an iPad 3 with a very pink screen. But also very even - no dust, dead pixels. I find it to be more noticeable in the car, probably because windows are UV-treated and cause a pink effect but again, my tint is very slight and negligible. My screen is so bright and beautiful that I don't really care. The thing I can't abide is the dull yellow or spotty screens I've experienced on a few past iPhones or iPads.

Yeah I noticed it's really bad when I'm in the car too. Now that you mention it, it does seem to be worse whenever I'm near windows where sunlight is coming through. Thanks for the reply.

A screenshot of it would be nice. Nope I don't notice mine because mine has the blue (cooler) tint, which I prefer to have over the yellow (warmer) tint.

you have to put 2 or 3 devices next to each and take a picture for us to see.

A screenshot won't work, I really believe it's a tint on the glass.
My iPhone 6 had a similar issue to this where the bottom half of the screen was pink tinted compared to the bottom. Apple support thought it was something to do with the quality of the glass or screen (obviously), and swapped it out. My new screen is much more uniform than the first one. Strangely, I noticed other variations between the two screens. The old screen had a much more yellow tint than the new screen. And my new screen was significantly brighter (at comparable brightness slider levels) than the old one. Obviously, Apple is sourcing screens from different manufacturers with varying quality. So there is a bit of a lottery aspect going on..

I'd say that if your screen is uniform but just looks tinted differently from other devices, you should be fine. You'll get used to it over time.

My screen has a tint of yellow (actually is annoying). I compared it with 4 other phones at the Apple Store and all employees commented that my screen is yellow. Just waiting for my local carrier to get a shipment in of phones so that I can swap it out for another one (hopefully not yellow). This sucks.
