    Does anyone know if there is a root tweak to change screen temperature. I'm coming from a silver edition passport on is 10.3.2 and that was thankfully an option.. Can't imagine android wouldn't be able to duplicate that setting.

    Well that is good to know as this post has thrown my next phone purchase into doubt as I was going to get this phone but there is no way I can cope with a yellowish screen and I am wondering whether to try the Nexus 6 instead, I know it's an older phone but I like trying different phones.

    If you compare with other phones, it will definitely look little warm but you can get used to it.

    I am sure I could but I would struggle with the screen on the first post on this thread as that screen is too warm

    Some unit may have a problem but my X is perfect. Not as good as Note5 or S6 but good enough for me..

    The Moto does have a warmer screen color. Probably seems more exaggerated to you because your iPhone screen looks just about as far in the opposite direction, as in your iPhone seems pretty blue.

    Not to dismiss the issue, but pictures of screens often overemphasize issues like this, Also, as is often the case, many people without experience tend to believe that D6500K whites are extremely warm and "yellowed" so a good calibration is, in their eyes, a "bad screen". My screen is pretty much on point at 6468K according to colortrue with my i1display pro. I'm sure there are many MXPE screens that aren't as well calibrated but we can't really use an iphone as a reference as they are commonly calibrated much cooler at anywhere from 6700k to 7200K. My S6 in basic mode read at like 6300 or 6350K last I checked. That was a while ago though.

    I wish Google would just include a screen temp gauge in the next update. Problem solved. Jailbroken iphones can do it and so can BB10. Why not us?

    Google doesn't build all Android phones is why. Motorola built this device just like Samsung builds theirs. Only Apple builds iPhones.

    Are you saying it would have to be a Nexus device? Motorola makes a version of android who's to say they can't add a temp gauge.

    There are many third party apps that will read the temperature of the phone. I currently use GSam which can give me these reads.

    Are there any to tell you color temperature of an app produced white screen?

    I'm sorry I meant the color temperature of the phones screen. Sorry for the confusion. Anyone who has used BB10 recently knows what I'm talking about.

    I don't believe this whole talk about yellow screen display (warm colors) isn't a defect... ok maybe it's not a defect or maybe it is, but it certainly is not suppose to be yellow, if it is then there certainly is something wrong, white is a color, when I see white I wanna see white and not white as a yellow color... all I can hope is I won't fall on one of those phones, if I do I will want to replace it instantly with another phone if there is no fix to it.

    CM 12.1 (Android 5.1.1) has a "LiveDisplay" setting that will turn your screen a little "yellow" at night to a "whiter" one during the day (it's all based on time during a day). I don't know if this is something similar that Motorola implemented as a default setting on the Pure. It seems that the image in the OP was taken in a dark environment.

    I have been using a app called Screen Balance in order to add a little blue. I also feel my phone is way to to worm. If I can't get used to it within the next couple of day I will be requesting a replacement. That's what MotoMoto support said I should do.

    My screen is also very yellow. I have been using a app named Screen Balance in order to add some blue. I think I'm going to ask Motorola for a replacement.

    Try holding the google screen next to same screen on a Samsung in any phone store. Moto has always gone with a little warmer white. There are many shades of white and many personal preferences. What I call white you might call harsh and bluish.

    Got my MXPE as well as my wifes. Activated on VZ with no problem and I decided to compare both phones. My wifes phone is white as can be. Mine had a slight yellow tint to it. Contacted Motorola and they are sending me replacement (they gave me a code to place my order). Fingers crossed that the new one is fine.
