    Hi Guys,

    I am retiring my iPhone 7 and want to get XR.

    Let me know if the white balance is good or bad or same compared to X and XS or 7 .

    I dont like warmer displays !

    I have an X and with True Tone off, my device is definitely cooler. I only have it warm at bedtime so that I have an easier time falling asleep if I was using my phone before bedtime.

    iphone X is definitely cooler than XR. I noticed in store XR has yellowish whites. Although some XR have cooler tint. Is getting a cooler display a lottery ?

    Feels like a lottery! I went through four XS Maxes and all had warmer/yellowy displays that I was not happy with. I gave up. However, just picked up a Red iPhone XR and the display is PERFECTLY cool! Nice crisp white. Finally!! Haha. I am very happy.

    lol i am happy for you Dan !!

    I also did get a warmer display in iphone 7. I thought I will give it a try and would be happy but NO.

    Warmer display induces sleep lol.. and colors just dont pop much.

    Its a bummer i cant give back iPhones in my country if i dont like them!!
