iPhone 4S screen
One of the main reasons I'm thinking of switching to an iPhone is the screen, but after reading the review from The Verge I'm not so sure.
"One thing I did note, however, was how much less contrast-heavy the screen looks in comparison to the previous model. The iPhone 4S has a noticeably different color tone, and blacks seem far less dark. This isnít necessarily a bad thing; when comparing Dead Space (a pretty dark game) side-by-side, I found the iPhone 4S display more eye-pleasing. Still, the newer screen definitely has a slightly more green-tinted, washed-out look compared with the older device."
Is anyone else worried about this?

I am thinking, this is the way the new screens are and we'll have to deal with a greenish tint.

This has come up even among the iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G that someone gets a screen that was yellow tinted or not as good looking as what they had before. It's fine.
From the OP's quote - "I found the iPhone 4S display more eye-pleasing"
Is that a typo or why is the reviewer contradicting him/herself?

Has anyone else noticed a lighter contrast display on their 4S as compared to a iPhone4?
I notice when I take a photo and then upload it or send it to my wife's iPhone 4...it looks darker and more crisp than it does on the screen of my 4S.
I was also looking at this same review:

I'll have to compare it to the screen on my Boss's 4S in the morning. He is new the iPhone and is amazed by the screen.
While the screen is still amazing looking on my 4S, The only thing that bugs me is that a photo I take looks brighter and a tad washed out compared to any other display I look at that same photo on.
