    This is probably one of those things that if someone didnt tell you it existed you never found out about it.

    It wasn't entirely fixed but the tint on the new phone isn't much as before. One of my friend bought the same phone yesterday and his phone has a bright green tint so after looking at it I think OnePlus have settled for the screens.
    And since every 7t has a tint I've decided to just be with this phone because the tint isn't as messed up as other devices maybe I just gotta live with it and sell it soon lol.

    OnePlus accepted my replacement request, I sent the phone back but they haven't received it yet. Once they receive it they will send me a replacement.

    I'll keep you updated, I hope the replacement device doesn't have this issue as well...

    The uneven tint is visible on black screen especially in dark room?
    This sounds like backlight bleeding
    That does not sound like OLED to me.

    Is Oneplus really using OLED?

    I was ready to pull the trigger and buy the 7T lol. This is actually a serious dealbreaker for anyone looking for a phone upgrade. It's interesting to see if there is any response from OnePlus about this and whether they'll fix it in the upcoming batches.

    Well there's a lot of people that bought the 7T that didn't complain about this issue so I guess not all of the 7Ts have this problem (maybe 10-20%? or a little more?).

    I'm still not keen on buying one at this current state. Also you're purely speculating with numbers here. Not everyone that has an issue goes to a social media site and makes a thread about it. The possibility of getting a faulty device is pretty high nonetheless. So like every 4th/5th device in the batch having a screen issue? You're basically playing the lottery here and hoping not to draw the short straw.

    Yes, backlight bleeding is a matter of luck (bad luck).
    This is why it bothers me.
    The effect on the photo looks like backlight bleeding to me.
    OLED is not suppose to have backlight bleeding.

    If it is not backlight bleeding. There is another one called clouding.
    I saw this on TVs with edge lighting.
    This is also not suppose to happen on OLED.

    Is that really OLED, Oneplus is using?

    Yes I totally agree, you shouldn't get one now it's way too risky. I'm just saying I don't believe every single device has this problem.

    It really looks like backlight bleeding so you might be right. If they're not using OLED and are falsely advertising that they do, well things aren't looking too good for them.

    Can confirm it's an OLED, the blacks are pure (pixels are just switched off) and the colors are very vibrant. On an LCD on a black background the pixels would still be switched on.

    Even so, OnePlus done goofed this time. I was really hoping to finally replace my S7 with the 7T.
