    Here is a side by side of the XS Max and 8+. The screen on the 8+ is much brighter and the XS max seems a little dim with a tint of yellow. Both phones have true tone turned off and are at max brightness. Thoughts?

    I don't have an 8+ to compare, but my MAX is brighter than my 7+ and to be honest my MAX doesn't have that yellowish tint like yours do.

    I've seen complaints by a few on YouTube who say the colors on the XS Max's display don't seem as crisp or vibrant as the display on the iPhone X. Hmmm...

    I put the display of my XS Max next to the display of my Note 9 and the XS Max has a much warmer tone, although Samsung always appears cooler. And that was with True Tone off.

    No issues here.
    I would exchange immediately if it were PINK though!
    Samsung had lots of pink AMOLED panels in the s8 days. The S9+ and Note9 don't suffer from that.
    If the white point is off first thing I'd check is true tone.
    On my Max if I disable true tone it definitely shifts blue-ish.
    Of course that depends where you are. In a room with blue lights for growth, for example, true tone enabled will actually look blue compared it being off!

    Are you sure Night Shift is off?

    I’m not having that issue with my Xs Max panel, it’s actually brighter than my X was. Side by side the Max display (to me) looks a little better than the X...

    If True Tone and Night Shift are both off and your panel still looks warm, I would take it back.

    The iPhone 8+ has a LCD and will always look different. The one on the left looks yellowish and the other pinkish. Seems like normal for a oled vs lcd.

    Both "True Tone" and "Night Shift" in Settings will change the tone plus their being different types of displays.
