I can see tiny shadows at the bottom (not as high as on my original paperwhite, alot less and barely there) and only on the top pic, a bit of pinkish behind the "never quite address in himself prevented him" but wonder if my eyes playing tricks on me, can't see it in the second pic. Maybe take a shot on a 45 deg angle? Screen is nicely aligned

i am curious to see what someone else sees in my pw, or if i am crazy like my brother told me i was i can definitely see the color pink at the top and it's a green muddy color towards the middle. my iphone is definitely making it look a little better than what i see in real life.
I guess I'm crazy then too because I see the same thing. I personally could not read on that. I had a few that were similar. I've now had 6 PW's in my hands. Only one was pretty good. However, I'm obviously sensitive to color, so what I might find unacceptable may be just fine for you. If your iphone is making it look better than it really is, then that is pretty bad from my perspective.

No, but that's because every time I try to take a picture of it, it looks worse than it is lol. I don't have the greatest camera. I'll try again, though.

Okay, here are a few pics. I took them with my camera phone so they're a bit dark and not that great, but it gives you an idea. The 3rd photo makes it look like the color hues are intense at the bottom of the screen. I don't see that when I'm looking at it. The screen looks much better and brighter (and more even) in person.

Thanks, I'm pretty happy with it. If you're not happy with yours, have them send you another one until they get it right.

Didn't they say the hue will fade or change after 7-10 days? You know how much whether it will bug you, no need to suffer. I gave my good one to an elderly, so we tried to get one from Best Buy. They opened two boxes, and color hue problem was obvious. Funny, the demo Kindle PW was great.
I am now using book light and can live with it. I am certain I will get another PW. I am hoping Amazon will get it right very soon.

I would exchange it. You say it has a black dot? That sounds like a busted capsule and it can only get worse.

oh my goodness i am trying to get another replacement and this guy is running me through the gammit. he's telling me to restart my device, asking if it was dropped, etc. i told him about the colors and the black speck and either he doesn't know about them or doesn't believe me..... i might just have to go through another rep

wow now he is making me do a factory reset lol i have no idea why they don't educate their employees

and now he is finally replacing it :| i have a feeling this will be a refurb for sure but as long as it's good i don't care anymore

i just checked the condition of my most recent replacement that will be here on tuesday. it states that it is new so i don't think i'll be getting a refurb. depending on the condition of this one, i think this is the last time. i am going to compare this new replacement with the one i have now and call it quits
