Re: Xperia XZ1 display looks yellow compared to xperia xz

it seems to me that third party sellers on amazon do some shady stuff. like sell a lower quality xz1 phone for cheaper. sometimes you can't really fully trust amazon they always do stuff that cuts prices and undermines the consumer. I definitely felt like the xz1 was of lower quality when i was using it which is strange.

Not really, I had a XZ1 before and had some display issues. Got it replaced by Sony itself, but the screen still looked yellowish compared to my XZ. So I would say basically all XZ1 screens are yellowish.

And as I usually say that you will get used to it and say other phones are blue-ish.

Re: Xperia XZ1 display looks yellow compared to xperia xz

i honestly dont think its top grade flagship. not only is the white balance off but the details aren't as good in the shadows. My sony X has better details in the shadow in HDR content. 

 

seems to me sony is using old 2014 displays to cut corners and save money.

Re: Xperia XZ1 display looks yellow compared to xperia xz

i find it weird that so many people have display issues and whatnot whats up with sony quality?

 

anyways i returned my phone for an exchange but apparently there were non left from this seller. which means i got a refund instead and now im gonna buy an xz1 at a higher price than initially sigh. 

 

yeah but the xz1 yellow was simply way too yellow.

Didn't anyone try adjusting White Balance manually from Display settings?

yes white balance does help but it should be well calibrated from beginning. 

 

Does anyone else notice light bleed from the and side edges of the display?

 

i got mine replaced but i feel like amazon just gave me the same thing i returned. i dont know if my suspicion is right.

I had a replacement from Sony itself but its still yellow. My main problem is the pixelated display. A grid is visible on white or grey background. Kinda annoying at times. But Sony thinks that's normal too. Well multiple problems with the display

Re: Xperia XZ1 display looks yellow compared to xperia xz

it could be cuz full hd might not be enough for the display size. Yes, I do notice so myself that the display is not sharp enough and you do notice very small fine grids. The white balance is also off like you said. 

 

I find it strange that when i compare it to my previous sony phone. The xperia x which is a midranger i find its display better than the xz1 display. even though its no HDR certified i find HDR Content on the Sony X looks better because you can see greater detail in the shadows. 

 

very strange. sony either cheaped out on displays or just failed big time. which makes no sense because they supply apple with the displays so do they make display for apple too.

Try to adjust your white balance setting.
