Here is my story
First i bought Z1 in early october, it was the official one for the Russian market. I had no problem with display, i even didn`t pay any attention on it, everything satisfied me totally!
In december i accidentally dropped it out of my hand, and the plastic and aluminium frames got some small damages, so i decided to change the phone. I sold the old one and bought the new, for the Hong Kong market. With the new phone i noticed that the screen have some reddish tint
This was annoying for me too much, so i applied White balance mod, and the screen bacame much better for me but if take a look more strongly, anyway there`s a reddish tint on screen, but generally the image became more closer to natural white and grey
I started reading the threads about the screen, and realize that Sony defifnitely used different types of screen. I remember discussions about screens when i was Xperia Z user, so i found the thread at Z section about how to recognize display manufacturer, so i did it on my new Z1 from HK, and this is what i got
So, my new phone is with Sharp (reddish tint) display, and i don`t like it at all. I don`t know what type of the display was in my first, Russian, Z1, but i didn`t even thought about it, the screen was perfect for me! And i realize now that the screen was more with the greenish tint, but it was so
not noticeable for me that i didn`t even pay any attention on it. And now i`m upset with the new phone and screen, i don`t like to be dependent on White balance mod.
Don`t know what to do
