    Hi guys,
    New owner of a silver iPhone 7. The bottom left corner of my screen seems to be slightly more warm compared to the rest of the screen and the right edge of the screen (just about 0.2mm from the right edge) is cooler/grayish.

    You can notice this while looking at the keboard and looking at the grey area right next to the letter A vs next to the letter L. You might have to notice very carefully and be picky.

    Sometimes I dont notice these variations at all. Its almost as if the screen adjusts. I saw a similar thread but just wanted to ask this specific thing only.

    Thank you for your responses.

    I'm talking about looking at these areas - [​IMG]



    And the right edge - literally the right edge :

    Almost every phone at three of my local stores are like this. The right edge (not the right half of the screen) is a bit cool temp profile with bottom left corner a little warm.

    I already did. You even pm'd me and I answered you. Also, sometimes it takes days to get a response on a forum, so please be patient.

    Depending how long you have had it and if it is something you cannot over look it, I would either return it if you are within your return period. Or have an exchange for a replacement device. There have been reports and previous threads of partially yellowish tints With the iPhone 7.

    This is actually my second device. The previous one was worse. That's why I went and looked at all the display models at three stores. All of them had it to a certain degree.

    Then perhaps it may be a reality you may not find a perfect iPhone unfortunately.

    use filters to change it around and see if you can adjust it to your liking.

    I wanted to ask about the warmer bottom left corner and the slightly cooler color on the right edge of the screen...The overall color is acceptable to me.

    I feel the iPhone 7 has a much warmer tone over the 6s. But I don't have any yellow spots or areas. However, I looked at your pictures closely, and they barely, if at all, resembled any yellow tinting. I have observed worse cases, yours appears very minimal.

    Your first post doesn't indicate that at all. And you made it sound as if you're highlighting areas of where your phone is actually experiencing issues.

    You also stated:

    Which also makes it sound as if you're referring to the above photo's exhibiting yellowish tint.


    When other forum members post issues of their phone, it's either a screenshot or photograph. It's way more helpful than posting stock photos, which makes more sense to post an actual photograph for others to see what you're actually referring to. That would make more sense for the sake of discussion and troubleshooting. Not posting stock pictures that exhibit nothing.

    Thanks. It was puzzling me why I couldn't see the problem.

    Try taking a photo of the screen, load photo into photo editor, use color picker and compare the RGB, hue, sat and lum values of both sides.

    What is the point? He's already found a difference perceptible to him and it's bothersome - he either has to get rid of it or keep it.

    They are all like this. Some better, some very bad. Its impossible to notice in an apple store where somehow the lighting makes everything look perfect.

    Get used to it and hope the iPhone "8" has a better screen quality.

    My iPhone 6 had it on the status bar but my 7 Plus doesn't have any. I am OCD about things like this too but you just have to learn to ignore it or play the lottery. The problem will be fixed this year as Apple goes all in on OLED
