    Unhappy 7R7 Broke My Heart

    Today I unlocked a friend's iPhone.

    Comparing it to my phone, I was shocked his screen is really bright, we are not talking about a mere difference here, I am talking a brightness like I had seen Jesus.

    My god, I was fooled all this time along thinking my iPhone is perfect, I realize it's not.

    I can't live with this burden I have to trade it or something... (God if I didn't have the customs apps, I could have probably switched the SIMs and phone without him ever noticing)

    Anyway, It looks exactly like the 5 and 7 series screen differences seen earlier.

    Mine is a 7S7 (much less bright)
    His is a 7R7 (bright)


    Has anyone found a solution to this please ?

    Maybe change the default value of brightness but I don't know where to look.

    Thanks.

    Maybe under settings - brightness??

    Or you are talking about the contrast? I unlocked mine like 3 weeks ago. And last week I got 7 iphones to unlock them, and 6 of them had the screen with less contrast or something like that. The black were like a blue. Only one iphone had the screen like mine. But it had a protective case that I guess was bloking the brightness sensor cause the screen was very dark all the time.
    13 Unlocked iPhones and counting!!!

    Yeah off course, all what I said before was with both iphones' brightness maxed out.

    Did you check out the link in my previous post. It looks exactly like that difference.

    I donnu if that's contrast or brightness, but it looks nasty.

    I noticed the same thing on a couple of iPhones I unlocked. One of them had the bad contrast screen (like the iPod Touch). FYI, mine's a 7T7.

    Any workaround the community is aware of ?

    The iPhone only exist of my perception of it. Even if the damn thing is fine. If my perception gets tempered, I can't rest my head to sleep until that bug is gone.

    I don't know what I just said there, but yeah, I think I got messed up.

    I got an 7R7 and must say the screen is just beautiful. I can't put the damn thing at full brightness as it's just too bright. From looking at the picture, even my 50% brightness is alot brighter than yours at 100%. =x

    I remember seeing a little hack (can't remember if it's Erica) that changed the brightness menu into something else (maybe contrast).

    I have gone thru all the post of TUAW and Engadget since June 29th but couldn't find anything (Yeah that's 3 months worth of iPhone news browsing).

    Anyone can help me pleaase
