You tend to see a ****storm of threads every year from OCD people either complaining their iPhone screen is too yellow or too blue.

"OMG my screen is to (insert color), I'm going to keep returning it 15 times over until I finally get one that appeases me."

Which one do you think it will be this year? Yellow or Blue?

There will always be people complaining about the new iPhone. I've just come to accept it as an inevitability of every new iPhone launch. I would be more worried if there was no complaining at all.

We spend hundreds of dollars on these phones. If they are not factory perfect, as in, if they don't come in as advertised: it's not "complaining" or "whining". We pay for the best so we expect the best. If by some chance the screens are a dull yellow in some models and not others: why would you act like people being upset with their purchase not being up to the level of quality they expected?

I had taken back an iPad 3 because it had a dead pixel the day after launch. It made me look "bad", because other than that it was perfect, but I paid 800 dollars so I expect pristine units. It was an easy exchange and that is that, Apple will have more than enough of these phones to toss around for replacements in a few months time.

If a larger-screened phone has visible defects, you'd be crazy to not want to exchange it for a more-accurate one.

LED displays are just poor to begin with. Just look at LED tv displays. Almost all of them have defects. Even the most expensive ones. Poor blacks, Clouding issues, blooming, bleeding, etc. The reason manufacturers use it is because it is cheap and available. I would never own an LED TV for those very reasons.

Complaining I can live with.

It's the "I returned my iPhone 15 times and all the screens were yellow" that makes me sick. How many people don't get a phone because of those idiots every release?

Who's to say that anybody else would be happy with those models if their screens were tinted in a bad way? Apple will have plenty of supply for replacements and nobody should be forced to live with visible faults on their device they use every day and paid good money for.

It depends on the severity, of course, but if it can be proved and made apparent on a grayscale test then they have every right to return until they get a satisfactory model.

I know right? The constant returns to try and get a picture perfect (in their mind) phone when it really just comes down to preferences. Not to mention the fact that if everyone did that then Apple would have to put their foot down and limit the ability of consumers to return, hurting us all in the process.

You think there won't be any screen tint issues at all? Really?

People tend to complain more about yellow screens than blue.
I wonder why that is, any idea?

Yellow on the 6 and blue on the 6+.
Wise guy eh? :p

God I hate when that happens though -___-
You mean when people complain about it? or when you get a warm/cool tinted screen?

there will always be complaining about something
Amen brotha'... Amen.

My 6+ looks too blue. Based on another forum member's measurements it's about 7500K. Sigh... such a beautiful display otherwise.

Well to be fair the 6's screen isn't totally uniform! With a light background I can easily see a gradient from the bottom to the top where it gets more yellow. I just don't care because all iPhones do this :)

I can't decide between my screen is too small (4.7) or too big (5.5). What do I do????
