    I know there was talk about the 3G iPhone's screen when it came out being having a slight yellow tint.

    I bought an iPhone during the first week and just took it out to use it for the first time (just got a Universal sim to unlock it!).

    I'm coming from a 1G iPhone and the screen definitely has a yellow tint. Was there a fix for it? Thanks

    A good fix would be to see a therapist for the OCD.

    the yellow tint is supposed to be better on your eyes or something like that vs the old bluer tint they had.

    If you are still on the 2.0 firmware, then you just need to upgrade. Other than that it is a problem with the screen.

    I can't post a screen shot right now; however, it looks the same as the pics floating around from before when this topic was first introduced.

    its normal. The new iphones screen is calibrated to have a "warmer" color temp.


    (im not sure what that means in the nitty gritty, but i know thats how its supposed to be.)

    i personally can't see it on my phone but maybe i'm so used to it. :p my understanding was they made it yellow on purpose like others have said. i seriously can't see it right now though.

    if you're worried if it might be hardware, take a screenshot to see if it's hardware doing it or OS.

    Aristobrat-

    I found that too- I was just wondering if something came out later than that to suggest that the Apple spokesperson was wrong.

    Other than that, thanks for everyone's input. I have set my brightness on the low side and based on what I've heard, if I just put it up a bit it will be better.

    Thanks

    It's closer to 6500ºK which is close to mid day natural sunlight color. Most people are so use to watching overly blue (cooler higher temperature of up to 8000ºK) and sitting under florescent lights that they incorrectly see 6500º˚ as yellow.

    Make sure to adjust your TV to the "warmer" or "lower" color setting and spend a little time getting use to it. It is much more natural and correct.
