    Title without the *an* of course Where do I change it?

    Anyways, this screen is driving me insane. I see the faintest yellowish stain at the bottom. It's worse when brightness is low and seems fairly unpredictable. I know some of you have it too, but I have a hard time showing it to other people. Like people at the store who have to approve an exchange for a new device... I also have the pink. That's a lot more obvious. But it's the bottom of the screen that is really annoying me.

    I did find one way to show it a little at all times. Be careful, might ruin your phone or at least how you look at it. If you pull down the notification bar with a white notification in it, you clearly see the white change as soon as you come near the bottom of the screen.

    UPDATE: as pointed out below, the greying out at the bottom is part of the Android system. So not a good way to illustrate it after all... Thx Nexus_HTC_PS!

    I have it too! It is very faint and only noticeable on a white background, but I'm not sure if I want to deal with a refund and exchange. I'm also kind of forcing myself to not let it bother me because my OCD is very annoying! Hahaha. I think it is a pretty wide problem too.

    EXACTLY! This. I was really trying to deal with it, get over it, etc. But I just can't. I keep seeing the darn thing. I have changed the settings of the display a hundred times: warmer, colder, vivid, ....ANYTHING to make it seem less obvious. And sometimes it seems to help, but then after a while I see it again and I go insane all over again

    My white notifications get greyish when they're swiped down all the way. That's natural though. It's the same way on my Nexus 9.

    Normal? It doesn't do that on the S7, S7 Edge , iPhone 6S, HTC One M8, ... Only phone I ever had it on was the One Plus One ...
    It's also not just greyish on mine...It's more blurry.

    Yeah, yellow is not normal. I was saying the the grey is a natural part of the software greying out when you pull the white notification all the way to the bottom. It does this on my Nexus 9 as well. And you can't really compare Samsung and apple to the 10. The 10 is closer to stock Android than Samsung(especially with notifications). And Apple... I'll just let that one go. 😂😂😂

    Yeah, you are right about the greying out, I think. So my trick to show it is not a good one.
    But it's still blurrier at the bottom, and it's still worse than on the very old HTC M8 panel

    There's a thread on XDA about this issue, and this is what someone said: "i ordered from htc unlocked, but went to a couple of verizon stores for an unrelated issue (to check out their tgsp). both htc 10s at the stores had the off-white on the bottom when i went into settings and selected automatic brightness. point is that of the three that i've held in my hand, they've all had the issue. so that and the fact that one or two people tops in this thread have not reported this as a problem leads me to believe that you may be looking at getting numerous replacements."

    Anyone eith yellow tint at bottom of display… | HTC 10

    Well to answer your "send it back?" question I would say yes. It sounds like you're not happy with it and can't look past it so it will just carry on driving you insane. Send it back and hopefully you will get a replacement that you're happy with

    Exactly! Some other guy had another issue with another phone and went through FIVE REPLACEMENTS! I just can't be that person. Hahaha. For me, it's literally only noticeable at certain angles and when the screen is white, but even a grey screen makes it disappear.

    Yeah, now I just have to find a way to show the store what I mean It's so subtle at times...
    Trying to figure out when it's the most pronounced

    I'd just open a blank page in your internet browser. The HTC internet browser is great to show it because it will give you a completely blank white page if you type in the address "about:blank".

    Yeah, that's a lot worse than mine. If mine were like that, I'd definitely think about exchanging. Mine's only on the bottom and a lot less noticeable.

    Well, it is a lot less noticeable at times. That's what makes it so confusing ...

    Part of me thinks it's just a function of the panel lighting, and every phone might have it to a certain degree. I'd imagine most people aren't as OCD as everyone on this forum and wouldn't even notice it or think about it! Hahaha.

    Yeah , that's what I thought for a couple of days too. Maybe something typical for LCD. But then I put it next to the M8 , a lot older phone, and it didn't have it! Then next to iPhone. Also nothing. Only other phone I ever noticed this on was the One Plus One...

    The OCD is strong in this thread. I have an S7 Edge and an HTC 10 and love both screens.

    If you really want to see it you can go to daydream settings, it gives you a bright white screen to see it. I doubt you will be able to see it in a month. Does not bother me at all.

    It gets gray on my HTC M9 I just think that's the way Android and Google has made it work.

    If you're not happy, return it. Never spend the money you work hard to earn on something you don't like.

    Having said that, often times yellowing is a by product of rushing products out the door and not curing the glue properly. If this is the case (it honestly looks like it to me) it will go away in a month or so — after the return period :/

    Take it back. Try again. Or try something else You have access to two phones I would love to get my hands on — Z5 Compact and Huawei P9.
