    Anyone else having issues with your screen not getting bright? My 7 is super dark and I have turned it up all the way, and it's still very low. Any thoughts?

    Do you have auto-brightness on? Try a hard reset it might software related.

    I read its power button and volume down. I have not tried yet but might need to in a little bit after setup.

    I think it's volume down. Obviously just try both volume buttons with the power.

    Not anymore. The home button is not a physical button so does nothing if the software is "locked up".

    Looking at my iPhone 7 next to My 6S the 7 is at least 25% dimmer. That's the opposite of what was advertised. I hope it's software!!!

    Agreed. I just did a hard reset and it's still darker. I thought it was suppose to be brighter. Not liking this.

    No problem with my 7. Super bright when cranked to the max, I am going to keep it at about 60% for now.

    Don't suppose the bottom of your screen is slightly darker or has a mild yellow tint? Maybe we are part of a bad batch...

    My display is a much warmer color then my 6s, but I don't see yellow really. How about you?

    Yellow compared to 6S, brown towards the bottom. Generally doesn't go bright enough and a lot darker than 6S. Given it's supposed to be brighter I should return it but no stock...

    Yeah that is what I am afraid of. I have a jet black and I know they aren't going to have any of those.

    Yeah a few people (including myself) have been having this problem. I think the screen is starting to normalise though - when I first turned it on it was the whole screen, now it's slowly starting to fade into normal. Give it a week or two and see if that helps, if not ask Apple for a replacement (not that we have much of a choice, given their current stock). I called my local store earlier and he said they don't even have any replacement stock in at the moment.
