This is one of the first things you learn in a photography class. The camera lens will see things that your eyes may not. And sometimes your eyes will see something the camera lenses will not.
I'm not disagreeing, but my problem with photos is that it's incredibly hard to take one that really shows what's what -- unless it's taken by a professional with perfect lighting. Maybe not even then! :o

When I've tried to take one, it ALWAYS looks much worse than what I see with my eyes. My eyes see a screen that looks great and I'm trying to show people that there are good ones but the picture comes out looking like all the rest I've seen posted. :(  So as to 'what to expect from a replacement', such photos might make it seem like it's impossible to find a good one.

And I know that's not the case. To me, honestly, I've never seen a picture of a kindle screen that looks as good as mine does in real life. None of the pictures in this thread look particularly good to me. So I'm skeptical of their value as comparison tools. :(

Which is why I say, again, that it really only comes down to what the person is seeing, in real life, with their own eyes and whether or not that's acceptable to them.

My reason for posting was really to ask if the yellow was what everyone else had. I am coming from a pw1 so had no idea what the pw2 looked like.

I disagree with Ann about the pictures. Personally, I think pictures are so helpful when talking about these problems.

I, and many other have the issues that you are reporting.  There are lots of complaints about the Kindle Voyage screen problems - on other forums and on Amazon's website.  Those pictures look much worse than mine but at least yours is almost 100% yellow.  Mine is yellow towards the top of the screen and gets bluer at the bottom.  Worse than reading on a LCD screen in my opinion.  It is being shipped to Amazon's research center for what that's worth.

Thanks.  I decided to call Amazon & they are sending me a new one.  As I've said previously, I am not one who complains, always was happy. I think I've just spent too much on this to keep it.  Let's hope the new one is better & if not, I'll decide if I can live with it. [emoji2]

Ah! You'd said one was at 13 and one was at 19 and I thought you meant the two devices but you meant the two sets of pictures. Sorry.

I've compared my PW screen to my V screen in same lighting conditions and the V does look a bit less 'blue'. But a whole lot better contrast and clarity. That's what's critical to me since I will rarely be using both devices at the same time.  And even if I did, the difference in light color doesn't matter to me. :)

Thanks for your input Ann!

It's also best to compare with exactly the same light level, same book, same type size and style, etc.

OTOH, it could be you notice the light being yellowish compared to your PW but if you just use the V for a while, you'll find it doesn't bother you as much as you think.

And, FWIW <warning: science content ahead> blue light tends to be the kind that stimulates you to wake and be alert, which is part of the reason it's often advised NOT to use tablets and phones right before bed. So it may be they made a conscious effort to find a light that was less blue since so many folks read before going to bed.

I did take the pics at the same light level at the same spot in the book.  I'm not one to make a fuss & exchange my kindle, I've always been thrilled with my units.  I guess I just wanted to see if anyone else's was like this & is it normal?  It's an expensive item to just settle.

I know pictures can never do it justice & it didn't bother me when I got it but reading last night it was noticeable to me.  My pw1 never had a yellow tint so, yes i will decide if its worth returning for a new unit or not.

Thanks

Hi everyone, mostly lurker here but I do enjoy reading everyones opinions.  Got my Voyage, love it.  Was reading last night with just a lamp on & thought, hmmm, is this screen ok?  I have a pw 1 & never had an issue but wondering if my Voyage has a yellow tint?  Or am I imagining it? 

Thanks for the responses,
Joanne

I think I have one at a 13 level & one at 19. Opinions?

I have a brand new Oberon for Paperwhite cover in orchid (Purple) Hummingbird pattern.   It was only used for a few weeks, I got an Amazon cover for Christmas & I switched it because I like the wake/sleep function.  I paid $75 & will take $65 shipped.  I'm not sure how to post pictures but if you want a picture pm me your email address & I will send it.  Amazon gift card preferred.

Thanks,
Joanne

Great condition from a nonsmoking home, Amazon lighted red cover for the K3/Keyboard for sale.  I have two covers & I rarely switched them which means this has rarely been used.

Asking $35 $30 shipped.  Prefer Amazon gift card for payment.
