    Hello everybody!
    I just bought my (Samsung) iPhone 6s+. I've noticed that the screen is a little blueish in the bottom left margin. In that spot, whites become blue, the left margin of the keyboard looks a tad purple on white backgrounds. Also, there is a small spot where the backlight seems to be turned off. Are these things ok? Should i try and replace it? Everything else seems perfect. I can't believe i got a phone where the buttons aren't loose, and yet the screen...

    Very common issues. They seemed to have rushed the 3d touch and OC has suffered.

    Tight buttons = win
    Poor screen = lose
    The search goes on for the perfect iPhone. One was last seen in the Andes several years back by a mountain climber but there were no other witnesses to verify the sighting.

    Funny :)) But i'm quite serious. I never got such ok buttons on an iPhone since the 3g.
    So there are high chances that the replacement might also have a bad screen...

    They had all eaten each other. No witnesses.

    Take a photo of your screen with another device/camera and post it here.
    As for the buttons, my iPhone 5 had loose volume/mute/power. My 6+ had a loose mute switch and my current 6S+ has a loose mute switch. No good is it!

    This is the best i could manage with my iPad camera. It's much more noticeable IRL.

    Yeah, QC has been really inconsistent for this launch. I have owned every iPhone since the first one and this is the first time I have had to return an iPhone due to issues. I am now on my third 6s+. It is a Samsung, but is flawless. I think this will be the last time I buy an iPhone at launch. They are just handling too much volume now and QC seems to be lagging as a result. Best to wait a few months after.

    True. This is what i heard also. All of my friends' iPhones bought in May or April are perfect...

    Yours doesn't have the blemishes? What production week is it?

    Dark corners and/or blue edges are very common issues this year. Lots of threads about these:

    iPhone 6s+ Screen edge blue?
    Dark corners at top left

    I've seen 12 iPhones 6S+'s and they all have either 1 or both of these to some degree. Some better than others. By all means swap yours out if its intolerable to you but chances are you'll get another with the same issues. Could be better, could be worse.

    I'm going Friday to swap mine as it has got worse but I'm way over the 14 day window, do you think Apple will switch it for me or give me a hard time?

    I've been having issues with Apple with phones, they used to switch out phones without problems and now it seems like they fight over everything

    Try Apple Support online. You won't have to rely on a Genius seeing the issue you see that way.

    How would that work for a replacement though?

    They ship you a new phone and you ship the old one back.

    You have to tell them you can't make it to a Store and you want a swap out.

    A common issue on the 6s. I don't think you'll find one that doesn't have it to some extent.
    Same, although it's not flawless it's at least the best one I've had so far. Production week 41.

    Yeah that wasn't easy because there are like 10 stores in a 50 mile radius here in NYC

    If you have Apple Care, do an online chat and say you want an "express replacement," due to your problems and have a very busy schedule. If you don't have Apple Care, you can't really do express replacement, some will let you do it but it then costs $20 or $30 shipping.

    I live within 3 miles of an Apple Store, works for me. Its not about proximity to an Apple Store, its about not being able to get to one. Use your imagination, make something up :)
