    My friend just got his ipad2 AT&T and we were comparing to my Verizon version and found out that the AT&T one looked a lot dimmer and warmer in tone color. My Verizon one looks a lot brighter and sharper for some reason....

    I don't think it's because yours is VZN and his is ATT.

    Nope, not at all.

    Just a difference in screen quality. Get a replacement if you're not happy with it.

    The AT&T model is dimmer on purpose, so that when your down to 1 bar you won't be able to notice.

    enjoy.

    Agreed

    All these complaints of color temp and brightness would be killed if we could calibrate the iPads screen. I don't mean fiddling with the screen brightness in Settings. I mean screen calibration with a colorimeter.

    Really? As a 68030 member, you find that you still need to troll so hard to get attention?

    Check your friend's brightness settings if you haven't, yet. Could you post a pic of side-by-side comparison at equal settings? (ie, highest brightness, Google page). He could probably request an exchange with veritable cause.

    If you look at that thread "iPad launch day vs iPad today" by jasonHD that's exactly what I'm talking about. There's a pic comparison between the 2....

    it was a joke.

    I have an iPhone 4 on AT&T and I have friends with a Verizon iPhone and I would never give mine up (I'll take faster data over reliable phone calls any day of the week).
