    How is the screen quality? Is there a yellowish cast? A bluish cast? Just right?
    This should hopefully help yourself and others get a better idea of what screens are like this time around. It has been a known fact that iPod Touch screens err towards the more yellowish/warmer spectrum.

    Can you stare at a black background on full brightness is a dark room? Any light leakage around the edges?

    Now that is a legitimate question. I read in the dark a lot with iBooks in Night Mode, as well as watch Netflix, so I am very sensitive to black levels and light leakage. On the original iPad, it was pretty bad on both counts. The iPad 3 got slightly better. The iPad Air almost eliminated leakage but the black levels aren't perfect. Expecting the iPhone 6 to be that good or better but don't have mine to test yet.

    It makes my 5S look yellow when put side by side. They should offer a colour calibration service for OCD people like me :D

    Hard to describe, but…

    I've got a very faint sort of darker smudge-looking area at the top of the screen, near the clock. Not sure if it's some kind of light leakage or just screen variance, and it is VERY faint - you kind of have to look for it to see it – but its certainly 'something'. :-/

    I put it next to my 5s and realized how much of a yellow tint the 5s had.
    I'm in love with tthe 6+ display
