Yes that seems to be normal. Have tested multiple XZ1 but all are with a warm tone.

Sony Xperia XZ1 screen not impressive side by side actually worse than the sony X??

So i just recently got an Xz1 off amazon and i was excited to get it because its the last of this sony design which i really like and wanted to see how much nicer the display is. 

 

well i was disappointed to find out it has worse white balance than my X it looks more yellowish where the X is slightly bluer but i feel more true to white. 

 

on top of that the Sony X gets much brighter for the same brightness level. and testing HDR content side by side my Sony X is able to deliver more details in the shadows. 

 

how is this possible when Sony X is not even HDR certified and the XZ1 is supposed to be flagship??

I had the same problem since I was moving from the XZ. The best thing is that you will get used to it. Even iPhone X looks yellowish. As I know the yellow tint is actually good for the eyes. Also the yellow tint makes skin tones look better.

iphone X actually has very accurate whites and dont look yellow. I actually don't care about how the display looks in terms of harming my eyes. i want a screen that doesnt look like crap

Bro I have a iPhone X and it's definitely yellowish when the true tone is turned on. 

XZ1 is kinda yellowish but not as the iPhone X. 

Maybe your phone is defective then.

Stop swearing at try to get some help from your local support. 

Swearing here will not help you

Ture tone is for a good reason and it's turned on by default. 

Once you get used to true tone all others displays will look blue. But after all its personal preferences. 

You should be able to get a replacement or a refund depending on the retailer you got the phone. As long as its purchased recently

Re: Xperia XZ1 display looks yellow compared to xperia xz

yes its a recent purchase. i heard from someone that the international models tend to be higher quality though not sure. 

 

True tone is definitely too yellow. Although to really tell what displays are accurate you would need a reference point of some sort like a display thats professionally calibrated or somekind of device that measures the whites to see if they are accurate.
