    Is anyone's iPhone 6 screen darker in the top right corner?

    UPDATE: Went to the Apple store last night and tried to exchange for a new one. The Apple store genius opened a brand new box and it had the same kind of darkness in the top right. Not sure whats going on.

    Also most if not all of the model iphones had the same thing going on.

    Mine has a slightly darker tint that is only noticeable on a white screen when the backlight is at ~25% or less. My 5s had a bit of this also, but it was across the entire top instead of just the upper right corner.

    The top right corner of my iPhone 6 is slightly darker too. More noticeable on lower light settings. I'm trying to ignore it as the phone is otherwise perfect.

    This is basically how mine is. If the screen is dim and I'm really looking for it, it's ever so slightly darker. If the screen is above 25% or so, or if the background is any color than white, I don't notice it at all.

    Phone is otherwise perfect, so this wouldn't cause me to return.

    This is how all the iPhone 6's I have seen are - the iPhone 6 Pluses I have seen do not exhibit this problem

    Mine has this too. Sent it in for a replacement. If the new one has it too then I'll give up.

    Screen uniformity is a big deal to me. Coz I'll be staring at the thing everyday for 12-24 months. I don't like settling for subpar stuff. Especially when it comes to screens.

    The three 6's I had all had dead/stuck pixels but they all had this top right hand of the screen too. I gave up because of the pixels and went for a 6+ and the screen is better with no shading. First 6+ had scuffs you could feel with your nail around the home button but second is near perfect.

    I couldn't agree with you more, but I returned 3 iPad Airs because of yellow screens until I finally got a 4th that was good and don't want to go through that again, especially with a phone and contract. I can live with the slightly dimmer top upper corner and the screen seems to be good otherwise. Even with a slightly less than perfect screen I really love this upgrade from my iPhone 5.

    The right side of my screen is fine, but there's a dimmer yellowish area about an inch long around the upper left corner. It's only really noticeable when I have the brightness turned down.

    So, is this the way all iPhone 6's are? Are people just not noticing it?

    iPhone 6 plus here: mine seems to be uniform.

    I tried it at 25% 50 75 than 100% brightness, and it seems pretty uniform and blue'ish.

    I did notice the same exact issue on a friends iPhone 6.
    Why haven't you tried opening a new box in the Apple Store? If it were me, I would've just returned it.

    I had the same issue. The upper right corner on my iPhone 6 screen was darker. Took it in for a replacement, walked out with a flawless iPhone. I did notice that most of the display 6s had this while none of the 6+s did.

    No screen shading with mine.

    One stuck pixel on extreme left middle of screen but it is gone after the first day of usage. ???
