    I just received my new iPhone 7 128GB Black and this is really a nice phone. The black color is amazing, the camera is really good and the home button feels nice - but takes a bit getting used to.

    I have noticed that the screen is a bit warmer than my iPhone 6S - is that due to the wide color gamut?

    Also some animations (ex. when double clicking the home button) seems a tiny bit wonky/stuttering, but I guess this can be due to the phone indexing the files?

    I am really happy with the iPhone 7 and can't wait to start using it:)

    I hope not, I can't stand warmer displays.

    Maybe because of your excitement of your new phone and handling it and rubbing it too much you think the screen is warmer? :p:p:p, but ya in a serious note if that is true, I hope there is a fix for it :eek::eek:

    My guess is that Apple has begun to back off on the race towards ever colder white points. If you look at the trend of display white points at a site like Anandtech, many displays have been moving well colder than the 6500k ideal point over the last couple of years. Even Apple has over-shot this by a bit. Their addition of Night Mode and True Tone indicates they believe that warm displays have their place. I'd bet that when we see the reviews of the new devices, the screens are quite close to 6500k. If you are used to displays that are on the other end of this chart, 6500k will temporarily look warm to you.

    I really doesn't bother me - calibrated screens seem to be a bit warmer anyway :)

    True. If I hold my iphone 6 screen up to my calibrated 4K monitor, the iphone is a lot cooler

    It's better than that nasty cool (blue tint) screen from previous iPhones. Reference monitors are warmer as well.

    This is an actual upgrade. Get used to it.
