Thought I was started this thread since we're early adopters.

1)My IP7/256/JB screen has a slightly yellow tint to it out of the box. Very noticeable when comparing to my IP6.

2)Front facing cam only showing half of my face. Had the same problems 2 years ago with my release day IP6. It ended up being a part near the front facing cam coming lose during transit and covering up half the lens.

Wondering if it's even worth it to visit the Apple store today? I'm thinking I should try next week.

It's not normal, plus my front cam isn't working. Wonder if they have any replacements available at the stores?

Really?

The tint is normal. These phones are only weeks old, they're babies. It'll wear off, give it a week.

but we need another "official" thread brah.

Sorry about your front camera. The yellow tint is normal for the first week or so. I know you don't think it is, but it is. I hope you can get a new one soon since your front cam is out. Cheers...

I didn't know this at the time of the thread creation but there are now multiple threads regarding the yellow screen. Definately not normal.

Its entirely normal. iPhone 6s screen are more yellow than iPhone 6, as are the new iPhone 7 screens. I have herd from multiple sources that Apple went to a warmer screen tint. Thus appearing as a yellow screen. I have 5 iPhone 7/7Plus in my household. All have more yellow screens than iPhone 6.

My 7 Plus has a cooler color temperature on the right side of the screen. In other words bluer whites in the right. Noticeable when reading from left to right. Kind of par for the course, will learn to get used to it.

My 7Plus is slightly warmer at the bottom of the screen and cools to the top. Other than that the phone is perfect. I will learn to get use to it in a week are two. Don't want to risk a worse issue like I did with the 6s and uneven backlighting.

Still, the 7's are not 25% brighter. Sure i can buy this about warmer color. But you can clearly see that we dont see any 25% more brightness. A whole 1/4 more light. Something is wrong, if its hardware software we will see.

Makes you wonder... Is there some sort of official person officiating the creation of these official threads?? I mean, if they're not regulating, just anyone could make an official thread!:eek:

Honest question - it's a new generation, how can one be sure this isn't Apple's intention?

I thought I read somewhere that there are two max levels of brightness - the first is what the user can set and the second is what the ambient light sensor/software can set - and the latter is indeed brighter. Can't remember where I read that or if it was legitimate or not.

Was it their intention to lower the brightness when compared to an IP6 despite claiming it has 25% more brightness than an IP6s?

The flaring is quite bad on the new lens/camera. The row of lights on the wooden floor aren't on the floor, but flares from the lamp posts.

This is BS. If this doesn't get resolved with a firmware update in the next week I'm taking it back and sticking with my 6.

I don't feel like going to the Apple Store and playing 'panel lottery' either.

So, my Plus arrived with a scratch. It's a super hairline scratch and it seems lame to be annoyed about. But I paid full price for it, and it sucks for something so expensive to arrive that way. I can't get a photo of it, but it's in the top bezel near the earpiece. Deciding if I want to try braving an Apple store tomorrow or not. (128 GB Black, AT&T)
