Well what can I say, the first iPhone 12 Pro Max had a dust lint right in the middle of the lens. I went to the apple store and replaced it with another one and everything looked good, when I installed my screen protector I noticed a shiny silver spot and noticed where the glass meets the frame that area has a small chip. This is so annoying to say the least...I’ve never had so many issues.

I checked the back of the phone and just didn’t see any visible scuffs. It only shows when a light shines on it and it shines silver..but yeah I should have done a better job inspecting it.
I am bit annoyed and sad....it took literally an hour to get everything setup.

Happened to me last year. I exchanged an 11PM for another due to an issue. I inspected the replacement at the Apple Store, and I ran my finger along the edge and felt a rough spot on the new phone, and the glass was chipped at the frame. I got another replacement right then.

Just went to the store the second time and got the new replacement and it’s flawless. Also I noticed when I went in today they didn’t put me in the upgrade every year plan. So glad we caught it when I went back. Now I am enjoying my phone again

Have you noticed any difference in color temperature or screen quality compared to your first one?

Honestly I am not sure, I didn’t see any issues with the actual screens on either of the phones.
The only thing I have to say about the screens is that I feel that the screens are not as bright as the past years. But I may be wrong.
