    Hey guys... Can you take part in this quick experiment for me so I can see if this normal display behavior or not?

    So when watching this quick video in full length on my 6s with middle brightness, this weird thing happens:

    https://twitter.com/MiST3R_C0R3/status/655514259502272512

    I watch it, as I said on middle brightness, and close it (Tweetbot 4) by swiping down. Now, for about a second this display is oversaturated. It adapts automatically afterwars?!. If you don't have Tweetbot to fastly close the video you can also just switch to multitasking or go to the home screen to see it. Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Nothing out of the ordinary happened after I closed the video. Display was at the level prior to watching the video. I don't think you have a hardware issue, so if you are happy with your phone, I wouldn't return it.

    So do you think this is a hardware defect? Or software?

    Could have just been a fluke. Before I ran to Apple to exchange, I would give it a day or so and see if it happened again. If you could make it do this on demand, it would help if you took it to Apple.

    It's normal- the iPhone changes the screen settings while watching videos to enhance the picture. Especially noticeable when tying to watch football highlights

    I noticed this yesterday, also while watching a video clip from a tweet in tweetbot 4! Everything went back to normal afterwards so I figured it was some automatic video optimization kind of thing?

    I have been monitoring this for about a week now, so no, its not a fluke.

    Since when does it do that? I had an iPhone 5s before and never noticed this. Is it normal that it takes 1-2 secs?

    Noticed it since I had the 6 Plus and now with the 6s Plus. It's normal and makes the video look better. Samsung devices also do it. Optimise the screen for what it's displaying

    Then maybe I am special as it never happened to me or any of my employees who are all using 6S and 6S+ units:p
