You have green tint?

How to test: Dark mode on, 0% brightness go into settings and you can see this:

With 25% brightness you can see grey and not green tint. Is this right?

What is this 191919 color supposed to look like at lowest brightness level? I did the video of black on lowest and my phone was completely black....this is different
It’s supposed to look grey.. or at least on lcd panels.
Is mid January and as I planned, I got a new 12 pro max.
Have to say the it has come with same yellow warm screen than all I tested in the past since launch day.
My conclusion after 6 new purchased 12 pro max and some more tested at stores is that most, if not every 12 series iPhone has this warm calibration. Statistically can’t be a coincidence, so I would not expect a cool white screen playing the lottery.
However, this new one has not the raised blacks problem. All the rest I tested had it. I’ll think if I will keep it or not.
That has been my experience after those months. Hope is helpful for other users.
Can you go at this link save the image on your phone and then view this in a dark room with brightness all the way down?


Does it look grey or does it have a hint of green? Try and move to another picture and go back to that picture a few times, Does your screen started to Flicker at all

For those wanting to test the raised-blacks issue (not really ontopic in this thread), I had written up detailed instructions here, intended to be foolproof: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/iphone-12-pro-raised-blacks-display.2263200/post-29232953

The most important part is that you have to let your eyes adjust to total darkness for a minute or two, or else you might think (as I did at first) that you are looking at a 100% black screen, whereas it really is not.

I just received one of my iPhone 12 Pro Max phones. No yellow tinting with True Tone turned off. The screen has a blue cast off axis. Observed no raised black levels either. This phone is perfect in all aspects, no observed physical defects on the back glass and no physical defects on the stainless steel frame.

Serial number: F2LD
Color: Gold
Capacity: 128GB
Production week : 52 (December)
Factory: F2 (China, Zhengzhou - Foxconn)

I honestly don’t have any faith in Apple support to escalate this anywhere close to the appropriate engineers. For those who do, please feel free to make use of my posting.

No raised blacks on my iPhone 12 with this video or any other black image full screen.
I also tried to wait a while for my eyes to adjust. Screen was as dark as a screen turned off can be.
No flickering either.

Looks like the same like all in this forum. Nice warm white and not the blue white like LCD.

Can you test Dark Mode with 0% brightness in settings in a dark room?

It appears that the phone does have raised black levels? Regardless, I am happy with the phone and it is a keeper.

Already posted by a few on here.

1 Save this picture on your phone.

2 Dark room. Dark mode on. Lowest brightness.

3. View picture. First thing to note is if it’s grey or some level of green.

4. Second and most interesting thing to notice, is whether after observing the photo in the dark for a while, moving back and forth from that grey pic to another pic on the phone, back and forth, then staying on the dark one etc.. if at the end you screen starts slightly flickering... this is the only situation which led my phone to flicker. This is very very strange.

Yes this flickering seems to be the HDR option in settings/photos Full-HDR.
Is flickering gone if you disable this?

On my 12 mini it is only very slightly greenish, same greenish tint as the display generally has in grays. I wasn’t able to reproduce the flicker (View Full HDR is on). As noted in my post I linked above, I was only once able to produce a flicker with a black video. My gut feeling is that the proneness to flicker may be subject to production variances.
