    I had screen problems with my first iPhone 4 (the screen would flicker), my replacement phone fixed the screen problem but now this phone has a very yellow tinted camera.
    does anyone else have this problem?

    I had it only when using the flash in low light. My flash was not set in place properly. Replaced, on my third and finally all good. Check your flash to see if u can see a black ring around the yellow or looks like some depth is to it.

    If you are shooting indoors with fluorescent lighting and getting very yellow pictures, it is a hardware issue with the white balance on the camera. Hate to say it, but you will probably need to get it replaced again. My phone had it and I was able to swap it with a working one.

    mine has a yellow tint without the flash on. It is significantly more yellow with the flash however.

    I have *Heard* That this only occurs when in certain kinds of lighting. Im not sure whether it affects all users or just some.

    yeah well i'm thinking i'll wait it out and see if a firmware update will fix it. If the next update does not then i'll go to the apple store and hopefully they have the reception issue sorted out by then too.
