I know someone of you guys claim you have the perfect one.

However, I realized that many people have yellow tint. I exchanged mine twice, my third one has less yellow tint than the first one.

It makes me feel that if the new iPad in general just have a slight yellow tint?

I know some of you guys claim that your iPad has no yellow tint at all, in fact some claimed to be blue.

If you have a perfect iPad, do you mind to please post a pic, I just want to compare, thanks.

I would but can't seem to figure out how to do it from my ipad:confused:
You'd have to grab a camera (an iPhone 4S works) and take a picture of a white image on your iPad. Then you can attach it to a post. From my iPad intake pictures and upload them to Dropbox and link to there, but since this requires a picture of the iPad screen itself, I'd have to get up and get my iPhone.

It's a looooooong way to the table from my bed. It's at least 4 feet...

Mine is a bit yellowish too but still looks amazing. I don't think I'm gonna let it brother me much.

If I see a new batch in the future that is killer white then maybe I'll exchange mine but until then I'm ok with the quality.

I think we nit pick these things WAY to much really.

Because I just can't be bothered taking a picture.

The iPad is perfect here, I know what yellow tinge looks like and I don't have it. I have no reason to prove or disprove. Too busy enjoying the iPad.

Screencap for your viewing pleasure. View it on a notebook or monitor without known yellowing, obviously. Looking at it on your yellowed display will make it look, well, yellow.

I'm not up for the 'prove it' game! Maybe some other day.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, I am not trying to play to "prove game".

I am asking this because think this new iPad seems to come with a baseline yellow tint, mine has a mild yellow tint, I just want to see how is mine compare to others. I changed it 3 times, all has yellow tint, the first one was the worst, my third one is somewhat better, but still has some yellow tint.

I play the new iPad ads from Apple website again, I took a closer look at those iPads, I realized that there is a mild yellow tint on those demo units too. That is why I want to see who has the perfect non yellow tinted screen.

What the hell do you care what my screen looks like? It's not like I'm going to trade with you if you like mine better.

If you aren't happy, take yours back.

Screencap does not count. It has to be taken with a camera. Best if you have a iPad 2 or iPhone 4/4s to compare.

OP, I suggest returning your iPad for a refund. You're obviously expecting something the iPad isn't.

Really? Three?
Yeah, they changed 3 times for me. First one because of a bad home button issue and very bad yellow tint, second one was only home button issue, screen looks fine with mildly yellow tint, third one is my current one, home button issue is solved, but the screen still looks mildly yellow tinted like the 2nd one.

This is my first iPad so I can't refer to that but here is a picture next to my mid-2009 Macbook Pro. I turned the brightness up to max for this picture for easiest comparison.

The reason the MBP is a little darker is that the screen was slightly more tilted back. As far as color, its the same. So, unless my MBP has a yellow tint, mine should be fine. And even if it does, I don't care because it looks just like my all my other stuff.
