Who of the people that have the new iPhone have the problem of the yellow tinted screen?

It apparently happened with the 3G but was updated with a firmware fix. Is the problem noticeable/annoying?

I cant really notice any yellow tint. Photos look pretty natural and warmer than the 3G - which is how I like them.

Comparing my iPT and my 3GS I can't tell any obvious difference in colouring.

Yeah apparently the warner colour looks better for pictures and stuff.
I saw someone using an iPhone either 3G or 3GS before and it looked yellowish, but I was on an angle

Lucky you... the top half of my screen is acceptable, but the yellow tint gradually appears towards the bottom. I also got a stuck red pixel.


Just bought it back to the Vodafone shop, they're sending it back to repair/replace. Looks like I have no phone for the weekend :(

Well for example on the settings screen, without scrolling, all the options should have the same color of white right? On mine, Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi looks white, but Wallpaper, General has a tint of yellow on it. 


This is the now famous yellowish tint problem: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2048495&start=0&tstart=0
