    It's definitely yellow compared to all the white iPhones on display at the Apple store. I'm going to return it & buy a new white one.

    I want to wait until the end of the 30 day return period until a new shipment comes in.

    I'm afraid the current batch might all have yellow screens.

    Not for $300 down, $135 per month.

    Why wait if the ones they have aren't yellow. I think you have better options for an exchange in the first 30 days.

    It's not a defect. They have a slightly warmer colour temperature. Just stop comparing and start enjoying the screen. It's not like it's clearly worse (or better) in image quality, the color temperature is just different.

    Ya that's what I meant. I'm going to wait until day 28-29 so a new shipment comes in.

    Do NOT wait, the chances are the same now or later. You should prepare yourself to do this more than once, since Apples quality control is poor lately.

    It took Apple four tries over as many months to finally deliver a $3,200. Mac Book Pro to me that was not defective, even though it had small 30mm scratches on the lid.

    It's just the way things are these days.

    Apple has become obsessed with ultra high volume, to satiate their desperate desire for bragging rights as the high volume, obscene profit takers.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a very long time Apple enthusiast, yet I'm discouraged with their attitude and performance over the last 18 months.

    FYI it took me 4 replacements to get a screen that wasn't yellow. Looks like yellow is the new blue.
