    Not just in size but in colour temperature? Or is the SE somehow yellower than the iPod touch? Trying to decide before I buy, as returning the SE will be challenging ( store is not close to me). I'm totally ok with the screen on my iPod touch though, so hoping they're petty much on par. Thanks!

    Here ya go.

    The left one is iPod Touch 6 gen, the middle is iPhone 5S and the right is iPhone SE. As you can see iPhone SE's screen is significantly yellower and iPhone 5S has coolest screen.

    I am so wish Apple provides option for us to change screen temperature, like Samsung has done with their phone.

    P.S: Max brightness for each device.

    Every single display is going to have a different color temperature variation. That's just how LCDs work. There are certain devices that screens are too yellow and those are defective. But a little yellow is normal.

    Ok, yeah that is really yellow. Really making the decision whether to sell my 6 and get an SE quite the head scratcher. Not sure why the SE would be so different from the iPod and the 5s. Thanks so much for the detailed info though!!

    Just had a look to see if i could go cooler then my non- night shift screen. Seems like no :( . Would be nice if apple did include maybe a hidden way to control the temp

    You could turn Night Shift on for a few minutes, then turn it off. Your eyes will try to adjust to the extreme yellow, and what looked yellow before will appear blue. ;)

    I know right, I spend so many hours looking at a blank white screen that the slight color variation is a big problem.......NOT. Also in my experience I only use the screen at 100% outside in sunlight. Most times I'm at about 30% for comfortable viewing.

    If you actually show the screens with an image on them you will "wonder where the yellow went". As you will be hard pressed to detect the difference. Put a series of images on the screen and do double blind test where you don't know which screen you are looking at. I bet you won't guess right half the time as to what device you are viewing.

    It becomes even more a non issue when you consider nightshift added to latest phones to provide more yellow for easier night time viewing on the eyes.

    Did you just "not" me? I don't think that's happened to me since the '90s. Digging it! I hate the night shift mode and have mine turned off. I have heard the screens are supposed to get less yellow over time though as the glue dries. I've not been able to find any confirmation of that though. Thanks for weighing in everyone!
