Just recieved the replacement 32GB and now I want to return my 16GB as well because the new 32GB's white level comparing to both the old 32GB and the 16GB is very obvious.

Left: Old 32GB
Center: New 32GB
Right: 16GB

Got my replacement 32GB

It's still a warm-ish screen, but it looks as it should to my eye, and not like it was soak dried in piss like the first one

I flashed franco kernel and can definitely notice a difference. But where can we set the colors? The white that i see now definitely has some blue tint now :P

Ok. Not that i am that bothered too much. Just would have to grow a liking to this 'white' now since the original whites were a little washed out for me but i was not complaining since i liked that as well. Was not that yellow and was pleasing to the eye.

I suspect this is just anecdotal but when comparing the black model with the white one, I noticed that the screen on the white one was less warm in color temp. The difference, while noticeable, was not that great however, but pretty easy to spot. Does anyone else have both models with which to compare?

Folks, the screen's not yellow. It's warm. A good color calibrated display SHOULD be warm. Many phones and low quality (TN panel) computer screens are calibrated towards an extremely blue white point.

This may "look" more white, but here's the problem. You know where else you see those ultra-blue whites? Those big old flourescent lights. Yes, that's right, you're demanding that your phone look more like the sickly blue-white that offices have been infected with for decades.

The reason warm temperature colors are preferred for color accuracy is because that's how most of us see light. The sun, being the most significant producer of light on earth, is not a blue-white. It's a yellow-orange white. By aiming at a warmer color temperature, photos and movies will look much more like the real world. It's also easier and less straining on the eyes.

Finally, the reason it may seem to "fade" is simply perception. As you get used to the screen looking warmer than you're accustomed to, it'll perceptibly seem less warm, even if it's not. Trying to compare from memory is frankly the most unscientific and unreliable method of comparing anything. Your brain simply doesn't retain detail like that. The only way to appropriately measure it is to use a color meter. No, photos won't cut it, your camera must also make choices on color temperature and it can get it very wrong.

Very nice. I would also add that when people take photos of their phones with cameras, the camera must decide the proper white balance for each photo. So, the photographer adds yet another variable into the mix, and there is no real good way to manually set the white balance against something that is producing its own light! So, if a camera decides that the white of one phone is correct and the other not, the phone not chosen will look abnormally colder or warmer on the photo than the one the camera deemed as the correct white point. The point being, you can't simply take a photo of your phone and show us how "yellow" your screen is. It just doesn't work like that.
