Anyone else experiencing a warmer tint that's somewhat yellowish compared to the iPad or the 4S? I find my iPhone 5 shows a little more yellow than the 4S on a white screen. It's could just be how the new display is calibrated.
Yes, it seems the iPhone 5 screens are a little warmer compared to previous phones. You can see the comparison in this video around the 5:35 mark.
I compared my iPhone 5 to display models at an apple store and mine surprisingly was pretty white. Every single display model had a yellowish screen.
I gotcha. That puts me at ease. So I shouldn't need another replacement? This is actually my second 5 and I don't recall the old one like this!
I cannot BELIEVE how long this glue myth has survived!
It isn't glue and never was. The glue thing was small yellow dots on the i4 screens 2.5 years ago, not an allover yellow tint!
The new screens are in-cell tech, theres NO GLUE INVOLVED, the digitizer is built into the display! Yet people still parrot this fallacy!
The yellow will never go away. Never. Apple uses 3 different vendors for LCDs, one produces these yellowish displays. They are terrible. Absolutely terrible.
If it bothers you, like it does me, wait a few weeks for the next batch and get yourself a retail swap (NOT genius phone) to get one with a better screen.
This happens EVERY year.
Usually the very first launch day phones are beautiful clear screens. Then you have a few weeks of yellow since these low quality screens apparently are easier to manufacture. The better screens will return in a few weeks.
I don't think that guys theory is true, as the phone was still made before launch day. Maybe like Che Castro said, time will tell.
Well mine looked yellow the first few days & now it looks white
So basically it's just not even worth a replacement since the new one will likely be the same?
Right now yes, supplies of the good screens are constrained. Wait 3 weeks and do a retail swap. RETAIL swap. If you do a genius swap you will get a phone that someone returned with a yellow screen. Good luck, friend, welcome to the group that trys to game the Apple supply chain so we can get the phone thats on display at the store.
No I'm telling you guys mine use to look super yellow
I have an iPhone 4 too so I can compare the 2
This is a pic from the apple board
Mine use to look that yellow but not now
