Hi,

to find your Panel manufaturer ID do the following via ADB or Terminal (Note: enter it after fresh boot, the kernel log gets flooded with useless stuff very quick):
Code:
dmesg | grep -i mdss_dsi_panel_init
The output will be something like:
Code:
mdss_dsi_panel_init: Panel Name = 9

Available Panel Types
  • jdi_novatek_hd_cmd_panel (Panel Name = 9)
  • lgd_novatek_hd_cmd_panel (Panel Name = 8)
  • somc,default_panel_0 (Panel Name = default)
  • somc,default_panel_1 (Panel Name = default)

You should probably mention that this will work quite early after system start.
dmesg log is cluttered rather quickly and shows only recent records. That's why some people report nothing in the output.

Back to the topic, I have 9 for the phone bought in central Europe. So, this will be probably most dominant display for EU region.

Yeah you're right, the log get's cluttered pretty easy, working on that already on my Kernel.
Added it to the OP.

z5c black Germany.
Display has a slight shadow topside that is most noticeable during boot when the white animation is playing.

    Thanks!
    Is it possible related to colour and/or buying location and such? (as I've read everyone is talking about)

    I honestly can't tell, but it may or may not be, only a Sony representative can answer that ;)

    Turn on usb-debugging, enter adb shell and the command above. Thats it.

    that's been a common problem with the Z3C too. The problem isn't with the display, but with adaptive brightness. In case of of Z3C this seemed to be solved with the newest build.
