I also have this issue (yellow tint on the right hand side) with my XA1. I already tried Diagnostics, factory reset, etc. hence it is probably not software issue.
Already took the phone to local repair, and 1 month after screen change (warranty) the yellow tint appeard again.
Please investigate whether it is a general issue of XA1 type and help me to prevent bringing my phone to repair in every 2 months. Is it possible to get another type of Sony phone (or a phone without this issue)?

If your phone is under warranty then they will replace your screen For two times. But if you want to keep safe from this problem then try to avoid overheating. Don't play high graphics games or app when ur phone under charging. And don't play for a long time without charging.
I am telling you from my experience.

Sorry about the late reply, i was too busy to visit the service center untill last Friday. The staff seemed to be aknowledged of the problem and the screen was replaced within 3 days under warranty so everything seems to be working fine now. Fingers crossed, well done Sony.

I have a yellow stain on my Sony Xperia XA too...
I've had my phone for over a year now. It started as a small yellow stain and then it got bigger and more colors appeared. Now it is blue, yellow and green. There is also another issue. The back of my Sony is stained black (I have a white Sony Xperia XA). I don't know how that happened but it got stained 1 month after I bought it.

Hello, I already had two xperia, first was XA ultra and passing 4 month starting to appear a yellow tinting on the right side of the screen between on/off and volumen buttons. I send it back to Amazon and asking a refund. After refund I bought again a new Xperia XA1 ultra. And I have 3 weeks with this cellphone and appear again the yellow tint in the same places as my old phone. This is not a software problem. Is a screen hardware issues. I gonna return again this phone because I don't like to see that yellow while my screen is in white. And maybe could be worse in the future. Now I wanna know why this is happening.? Bad development of the phone? Bad quality screen parts? Poor heat dissipation in the processor? Thanks

Hi @Fran4500, very sorry to hear about the experience you have had with the Xperia XA and the Xperia XA1 Ultra.
It's hard for me to say what the cause of this behaviour is before the device has been examined at an authorized service centre by a trained technician. You are however correct that it is seems related to the hardware as most users have had their displays replaced and it the yellow stains has disappeared.
So in your case I would recommend that you send the device to an authorized service centre as it needs to be examined. Your Local support team will assist you further so please get in touch with them!
Keep me posted!
