    Let's say your new iPhone has slight defect such as yellow tint or light bleed, would you return it and go for a replacement ?

    Or will you just deal with it and keep the phone for some reasons ?

    It depends on the severity of the problem if it is major then yes.

    If 1/2 screen is yellow and other half, I would definitely return. But if it was the entire screen, probably not worth it. But if it's sever enough that it bugs you then you can return it and get a new one.

    I would return it. New items shouldn't be defective.

    I'm worried about whether I can get my phone back before our family vacation on the 14th. Gah.

    I'd return it. If you notice it enough, and it bothers you enough to post in a forum about it, I think that is indicative of the answer.

    I would've returned it. It cost more than the average laptop.

    I always had problems with yellow tint. When I bought my iPad Air I couldn t stop noticing the yellow tint in the right side, it would drive me crazy, but I decided that after so many iPad 3 replacements without any good results, I d keep my Air.

    Oh well, it has been a year and now I can t find any uniformity issies no matter how hard I look, really, my screen is perfect.

    Today I got my iPhone 6 Plus. No bleeding, nice screen with bottom 1/3 slightly warmer then the rest. Am I going to replace it? No. I am positive that eventually I m not going to notice anything, 50% of the problem is in our head, once it gets older we are done with it.

    iMac - bottom 1/3 warmer
    Macbook Pro - right 1/3 warmer
    iPad 3 - (4 replacements) all had one side warmer
    iPhone 5s - top 1/4 warmer
    iPad Air - right 1/3 warmer

    Trust me, it might get better eventually, or you might stop noticing as much. I used to replace each of my apple devices 2 or 3 times. It will get better. Chances are the replacement might be worse and you end up regreting. So judge the one you have not expecting perfect uniformity before replacing it.

    Thanks, I think I am going to sell this one and purchase a new one.

    Replacement will take some time and I need to use my phone for our trip.

    Return it - I'm going to live with it for two years, so I better love it.

    Considering the high price and the way Apple hyped the product, returning it is a very good choice.

    Why would you not return it to get one in good condition? Return the phone and get the product you wanted, one without any issues

    Return it. Don't worry, you have about a year to make up your mind.
