So I originally purchased a 16gb black a few weeks ago. Shortly after purchasing it the home button got stiff and unresponsive. So I exchanged it today and they didn't have any 16gbs left so I switched to 32gb.

After playing with my new one for a bit, the screen is noticeably less vibrant and brilliant then the screen on my old one.

Is this universal amongst the 32gbs(downgrade in video screen to compensate for upgrade in harddrive? pure speculation) Or did I get yet another dud?

It could be a lemon. Maybe you have the screen brightness lower than your old phone?

It's not the brightness. It's the sharpness of the colors. The colors just look dull on this one compared to my previous one.

my wife and I both bought our 3GS' on the same day, but she got a 16GB and I got a 32GB. Her 16GB screen is much warmer in temp color than my 32GG. Her 16GB is just like my old 16GB 3G and my 32GB is cooler like my old old v1 screen. I personally like the more blue hue of the cooler temp color, but I can't explain why Apple is using two different color temps for the same series of phone?

I don't know what the situation is now, but Apple used to source the screens from two different vendors (supply/redundancy). Some (end users) preferred one over the other, and vice versa.
