I had a suspicion that my iPhone X screen (with max brightness, no night shift, no true tone, and no auto-brightness) had a color defect. The screen looks overall more pink on a white background. I tested this theory with my dad's new iPhone X and his looks less pink than mine with the same settings. Has anyone had this issue with their iPhone? I feel like I had an earlier batch of the iPhone X since his was purchased a couple days ago whereas mine was purchased 2-3 months ago.

I compared my first iPhone X to the display models at the Apple store and mine was noticeably pink. Apple employees exchanged it right away on the spot.

At some point you gotta just live with it, I’m on my third iPhone and I wish I could have the first phone back.
The first phone had a faulty Apple Pay though.
But had by far the best screen. I feel exchange phones are of lower quality. Granted that’s an anecdotal statement.
