Dude it does not matter, what i see on my phone i see in person with my 2 eyes lol.

The picture represents what you see in person with lights off. Brightness and contrast are 45% with the "warm" preset.

Ok, let's go. Pictures of my S2417DG, Manu Date November 2016 (wrong Thread but to help little Scotty here).

1) So, first pic is with 1/15 (of a second) shutter time and OMG WHAT A ****TY MONITOR - oh wait, I just had a small light left on in the other end of the living room:





2) Same shutter time but this time the small light turned off. completely different monitor, 11/10, would buy again:





3) Here is one with 1/20 of a second shutter:





4) And this one, 1/50 of a second, comes closest to how it looks in real-life:




And finally, one with my Nexus 6P, for the lols:




So, if you want to RMA your monitors because of smartphone photos.. enjoy.

Well then don't ask in a forum if you should return it, if you do not like it, return it. No one forces you to keep it.
I don't get it. We are just trying to help you.

I wasnt asking for a camera lesson, i was asking if this is within a normal range of backlight unevenness.

I wouldnt have posted the picture if it looked different to what my eyes are seeing lol.

This is my experience as well. Phones are great for a side-by-side comparison, but their cameras are not designed for accuracy. They are designed for entertainment and capturing memories.

I see very little BLB on my Dell S2716DG. Either I got a great panel, or it just doesn't bother me.

Its not really BLB on my panel tho, its just straight up backlight unevenness. My picture looks exactly like it does in person. The right side of the screen you can see in movies even, or on netflix.

Again the reason i am asking is if this is within a normal range is two fold:

1. I live an hour from closest best buy.
2. If this isnt that bad i will just keep it, as i wouldnt want to get something worse.

Thanks.

Honestly, if that picture is exactly the same as what you see in person, at and 45 / 45 Brightness / Contrast, if it was me, I would probably return it, it would annoy me, but others may feel different.
I just tried mine at 45 / 45, and in person it is just looks milky black, no issues at all.

At the end of the day, it is your call.

This is the exact reason why I feel bad replacing my dell s2716dg with 2 acer xb271hu"s.

I am upgrading the A00 to hopefully an A04. I will see if I choose to keep the upgraded dell vs replacing them with the acers. One of the Acer's have a dead pixel and then you know typical blb. But, I paid $1000 for both new. I could sell dell for $400. Then it will only cost me $600 vs keeping dell and buying one acer which costs me $500. It seems stupid that I don't put in the extra $100 and replace both with ips 165hz panels.

Input mate? As long as that sleep bug is fixed I'll go for it..

The sleep but is not fixed. It's present in A04 and I don't think there is an A05. It doesn't appear that Dell acknowledges it is a problem.
