    I just received my new iPhone 8 and turned off true tone display, but even at full brightness, my new phone screen is way darker than the screen on my iPhone 7. i have both phones sitting next to each other with the same settings turned on, and there is an obvious difference.

    Any ideas on why it might be doing this? ​

    Might be the "Reduce White Point" setting. When I upgraded to iOS 11 the screen on my 6S went much darker. Turned the "Reduce White Point" option off and it was back to normal.

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > Reduce White Point

    Worth a shot :)

    my 7 though also has a darker display then my co-workers display even when on the same settings. We just noticed last week though and i didn't worry about it since i new id be getting this phone today! But now that the new phone is darker than the 7 I'm a little concerned!
