    Just got my 5S. Coming from a 5. This 5S is much warmer and colors have that "washed out" look.

    Seriously, why can't a company like Apple get their screen QC right where there is no discernible difference in color temp across displays or at least where they could auto calibrate with software.

    Yeah I know it's one of those things that your generic consumer doesn't see or worry about, but Apple is supposedly the king of QC and still this **** happens..

    Probably going to return, but just wondering first if it has happened to you?

    With complaints that the new generation iPhone's screen being warmer than the previous generation going all the way back to the original iPhone, I swear it should be piss yellow by now :)

    I know it's not really specific to the 5S, which is annoying, because I've seen warm screens on all iPhones. I had the same issue with my 4S. Oh well.

    I use flux on my desktop, so I'm pretty used to warmer colors. I wish I could use it on my iPhone.

    Wish I had gotten a warm screen. Would have made everything better.

    Luckily my 5S is a perfect warm/cool combo, very nuetral looking. Screens vary, they've been like this since the 4/4S, some very cool some very warm, some in between.

    When I originally got my 5S in space gray, the screen was very warm, when I swapped it for a silver, the screen is more neutral but on the cooler side.

    Again they vary, Apple uses different manufacturers for the displays.

    Because some people don't like everything to be tinted blue?

    Yeah I guess.. It's just slightly annoying going from one tint to another just because you buy the new version. My Air is perfectly tinted to me (looks like pure white) while my phone is noticeably warmer.

    Think of it this way, it's like having different girlfriends with different skin tones. More fun that way :D

    I have the same issue with mine. Took it to the Apple store and they said it was normal. Compared it to the phone the rep had, his was better so we checked another and it was even more pronounced. They replaced mine but that one is off color too. It seems that they're all quite different but I'll be replacing it as soon as iPhone 6 is released. It's only a phone.
