    Hi!

    I recently discovered that on the right side, basically above the SIM card slot, I have a very light yellow ring. I tried to capture it in a photo, hope you can see it.
    I bought this phone in October 2012. I don't know if this issue has been there all along, because it's quite hard to see or if it is a recent thing. I discovered it last week and it's been bothering me ever since.

    I have read that yellow spots and tint is a quite common issue in 4S. Has anyone had a similar problem and does this defect go under warranty?

    Thank you.

    I had the same exact thing on my iphone 4 100% the same. Sadly it was out warranty. If you bring it to an apple store near you they will replace the phone. Good luck!!

    Yup. I had a similar issue with my iPad with a defect in the display. They replaced it on the spot no questions.

    That probably will depend on whether it is still under warranty, or they might fix it or replace it for free regardless. Hard to say until you bring it in a see what they say. Please report back on what happens.
