    Hey guys, I got my iPhone 7 Plus today. I was wondering if any of you have noticed the whites aren't as white on the 7 plus? It seems like the whites are more white on the 6s plus, or maybe the iPhone 6s Plus seems brighter and that's why the whites look whiter?

    Do any of you have both to compare side by side? I'm wondering if it's the way the screen is or if it's due to the Tech Armor screen protector i installed.

    I haven't spent a lot of time with the two devices together, but I think mine is fine.

    Are you guys comparing to your old 6s plus or just looking at your new 7 plus? It wouldn't be noticeable without comparing side by side.

    I saw no noticeable difference between my old 6S Plus and my 7 Plus

    My 7's screen is noticeably "warmer" than my 6s+ screen - whites on the 7 have a slight yellow to them, or the 6s+ is slightly more blue.

    My whites are exactly the same as my 6s Plus, which to my eyes seem very white. I had read a review from one one the major tech sites (sorry don't recall which one) that the whites on their test unit were noticeably warmer than their 6s Plus. That actually made me worry, because I am NOT a fan of the "yellow" whites. Luckily, my 7 Plus is as white as my 6s Plus.

    My 7 Plus is a little more blue than my 6s Plus. I really like this screen. Just looks better all around.

    I noticed it on a YouTube video. The 7 looked dim and dull next to the 6s

    I put mine next to a 6s plus and mine looks horrible. Also I took a few pictures and videos on both phones and they look better on the 6s plus. I am begging to wonder if I got a bad phone.

    Sounds like all of you did, the 7 is supposed to be much warmer and brighter. I would go to an Apple Store and get it replaced

    My screen is great. It might be slightly warmer but this could due to the wide color gamut on 7. The colors are way better and pop. You have to remember that bright blue screen is not accurate when it comes to color. There is a reason TVs are calibrated to be much warmer than that Vivid blue they show in stores to correct color accuracy.

    Not every screen will be the same. Give it time and your eyes will adjust to the new screen. Unless of course it's **** yellow then I would consult Apple.

    The issue is the screen on the 7 should be an immediate and brighter difference which they aren't seeing. So I don't think they need to adjust ya know?

    At 0:59 look at the color. When I first saw it I thought the one on the left was the 7.

    From what I'm seeing this is a pretty wide spread issue.

    It's the screen protector.

    No it's not. This is an issue with a ton of the phones so far.

    Ok, you're right, I've clearly never used that particular Zagg screen protector before and seen that exact thing on my iPhones 5, 6 Plus, 6s Plus, or 6s.

    It's more than just the screen protector. There are threads about this issue already. A lot of them are exhibiting this issue of warmer whites and the screens are definitely dimmer than the 6/6 Plus screens are.

    I compared side by side I'm traveling and haven't been able to transfer my music or pictures yet so I've had them both out quite a bit.
