Re: annoying yellow hue tint, brightness of z1 is poor

i got mine last week but will be returning it tomorrow by mail because of that. compare to my xperia z the z1 had yellow all over the grey . i will wait until this is fixed before buying it. i just hope the place i got it from won't give me the bs that this is normal cause like i told them, i expect a 700 dollars phone to be better than my old xperia z. lets hope i get my refund back by the start of next week. everything else about the phone is perfect. i got the internation version that came with the dock and headphones. the phone feels amazing on the hand and if it wasn't for the display with the yelliow tint i would be a very happy costumer. but i won't take chances and end up in the end that it was a faulty unit but seeing how the international has no warranty i will be force to stick with it or pay to get it fix .

Hi, I hope the problem gets fixed soon as there are many units that have this flaw. I'm really itching to buy the phone and replace my ZL. However becausr of this issue I really am having doubts..

yellow tint (very disappointing)

Hello

I bought a sony xperia z1 model c6903 and I notice it has a yellow tint. I searched more about this problem and I found out it is manufacturing issue. Now what should I do? will this be repaired by a software update or I have to replace my phone?

This is my first sony phone and I'm very disappointing about this problem..

Re: yellow tint (very disappointing)

Hmm use your previous phone to compare the color?especially if you have the other Sony phone that more easier...but i found that White color more easy to see the yellow hue problem cause that's i spot the different of course you can try by compare using same picture on both your phone to check if the color was correct or not,sorry not much able to helpNeutral Face

Thanks Yong for your feedback, i think that baterry drain issue solved with last FW .G.2.257.

And for yellow hue tint issue we need an official test / answer for this problem.

Re: yellow tint (very disappointing)

Welcome~yes i notice the FW14.1.G.2.257(currently using) update indeed mention about improvement for the battery performance...but still drain quite fast but i understand also depending the user also..but still that was not really the big issue yet....main problem still is yellow hue problem....hope yours Z1 without this problem cause it feels weird as the color process feels not original at from the object! specially using camera shooting picture as you can notice the yellow hue also causing the color looks different from the actual object!
