Re: Yellow tint

It's worth pointing out that owners of the HTC One X are reporting the same issue, as are a few of the iPad3 owners that I know...

Seems to be something common with the glue/acrylic filler they use in the Chinese factories.

Re: Yellow tint

Derry: Local prices are SGD 720 for the Xperia S, 768 SGD for the One X.

One X owners are complainging of seriously POOR battery life (worse than the pre-.73 S) and, you guessed it, yellow spots/stain on the screen...

Re: Yellow tint

when the yellow tint comes, put the phone in freezer and yellow goes away. If it was a melt, then I would say but maybe something else?

Re: Yellow tint

It's not a melt, it's a specific issue with the glue/acrylic that makes it change color in warm temperatures.

Re: Yellow tint

Nimche: correct, probably the same substance used by Apple in the iPhone4 and iPad3 (yellow stain issue), and HTC One X (yellow stain issue).

Re: Yellow tint

No suggestion, I already suggested you but there are better ways as well. You can carry a cold pack or even use snow in winter or water in summer. It won't get worse than this anyways.

Re: Yellow tint

From what I have seen the yellow tint varies from hard-to-see to a clear spot. It will appear to be yellow spots around the screen on white background, and brighter color on some colors making it extremely annoying at some point
