Default My screen doesn't brighten enough

My wife's nexus 5 (red) is only a week or two old but her phone is noticeably brighter. Whites are whiter but mine dims darker. If you put them next to each other hers looks incredibly bright at max and mine looks like it is about 90% brightness.

I know its not such a big deal but will this be a problem down the road ? Should I wait a while and see if it gets worse ? I hope its not just from use.

Forgot to mention mine is a white 16gb and hers is a red 16 GB. Mine is a month and half old.

You sure it isn't the color temperature or is this literally her is brighter. It sounds like you got a yellow screen while her isn't. RMA immediately.
