    I’ve bought and returned a few 44mm Apple Watches now and all seem to have an issue with screen uniformity. There tends to be a green tint around the edges that creeps towards the center of the display. It’s also visible when you pull the notification shade down. Most visible in a poorly lit or dark room. Has anyone else noticed this. Has anyone noticed any screen uniformity problems with their  watch?-63cde239-c430-41c8-9312-b81cc51baaa8.jpegHas anyone noticed any screen uniformity problems with their  watch?-e59be216-2e35-4ca6-8d26-fc34b2dca7f6.jpeg

    Here is the background I used in photos to see it better.

    I haven't noticed anything like that on my original series Watch or on my current Series 3 Watch.

    Also just purchased a series 4 44 MM watch. No green tint even in pitch darkness. Perhaps, your watch should be returned? Or maybe you have better color discrimination than I do?

    I had not seen that on my S4, but I have a new one coming Monday, exchanged for a different model. I will see then.

    I have seen this issue on two Series 4’s that I’ve purchased. I bought an aluminum version that I took back and I now have this behavior showing up on my space black 44mm. It’s more gray non-uniformity that shows up on the menu bubbles along the right side of my screen. It’s certainly ugly. Apparently there are many folks out there with this problem. I’ve owned every Apple Watch since the original and this is perhaps the most abysmal screen of all, regardless of how much bigger it is. Series 3 was impeccable.
