    I bought the white iPhone 4 and I'm not sure if it's just my phone. Return policy expires tomorrow and I don't want to check their display models since it's far away. But does anybody have discoloration on their screen? Not the black screen itself, but the white part. I have a grayish hue around the rim of the black screen. Maybe it's just the board behind the screen, I don't know. I hope I'm not the only one. Can someone confirm?

    I got mine in the mail yesterday. I haven't switched from my black yet so I couldn't tell you BUT if I were you I'd be on the safe side and return that sucker

    The thing is, the gray hue is perfectly symmetrical. That's why I assume it's somethig on the back of the screen. Forgot to mention that. Somebody confirm!!!

    What do you mean black screen White screen? If you mean white is switched on then the answer is no the screen should be uniform White ( or more likely yellowy tinged) so no shadows or uneven colouration

    Yea. I'm thinking a pic is the best way to show us.

    What are you talking about.. the discoloration I see is not on the black screen. It's on the rim around it. Meaning, it's on the white plate.

    I have the same thing as OP. I think wht he means is the white bezel area on top of home button, it has a greyish tinge to it.

    yeah noticed it on mine too. it looks like the edges of the LCD panel behind the screen.
    the white of the phone seems quite translucent and not solid white, i like it though :)

    OKAY! Thank God I'm not the only one :) I figured it was something behind the LCD since the hue was so symmetrical.

    Yeah dude, mine is the same. You gotta admit you did not do a very good job explaining that. If it wasn't for the other guys post I would still be trying to figure out what you were talking about.

    The white paint reflects shadows very well in certain lighting conditions. There is nothing wrong with your device.

    I just bought a new white iPhone 4 last Friday (the 13th) and noticed the same thing. It looks a little unsightly to me and I am thinking of returning it to Verizon but a new one would probably have the same problem so I may end up going to black. I had a white 3G and a white 3GS prior to my iPhone 4 and never experienced this issue.:confused:

    That's because they had black fronts.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong. It's definitely not an issue. If you don't like the aesthetics of the white iPhone 4 then, yes, I guess you should return it, but it's just the way it looks.

    I notice this on my 3GS. It's just the space in-between the bezel and the LCD. Nothing out of the ordinary. You'll notice it on most LCD screens, although it may not be as apparent the bigger the screen is.
