thats what it seems by everyones posts. whats up with the yellow tint?
The 3G had this issue too, it just takes a couple days for the screen to cool off. Wait a week or two and these comments will most likely fade away.
People are just nitpicking. Besides, there's not alot of posts about the screen being bad. People just love finding faults.
It's the temperature of the screen. Apple has gradually moved from bluer colors 2G iPhone and 1G iPod Touch to the current lineup that has a warmer yellow-ish tint.

Mine looks exactly the same as my 3G. These tints are gradually yellower from side to side. I think it's a defect.
Check this thread :
I posted pics of the 3G and 3GS screen side by side.
From what I've heard people with more noticeable tints have been able to get replacements pretty easily so you're probably right.
The thread I linked to also had a lot of people posting the same thing as you, so it may just be a batch issue.
I moved from the original iPhone to 3G S and the screen is just as nice or nicer. Pics appear a bit warmer but I'm not seeing any yellow tint (at least in whites).
My 3G S is prettier than my 3G screen, with no yellow tint.
i like my brightness 3/4 the way up anyways
with this, the screen looks sharp white and not a warm tinted yellow
If you click check for update there is a new update that fixes this problem and makes the screen look normal again.
My genius bar appointment is on Monday, my screen is very noticablly yellow. It'll be easy to convince them that this is true once I put it next to an old 3g I have...
No, there is not.
Yea, wth is he talking about....
I love mine. It's more vibrant and crisp than my last 3G was. I can't really see where it's yellow at all. I'm sure there are different displays going into them. Anyone know if it's still possible to enter the field test mode to identify the display?
He read a thread from last year that had that update. He didnt look at the date of the thread.
mine is unbelievably perfect. no yellow tint what so ever, I've owned the 2nd gen Ipod Touch, 3G Iphone so I know what the tint is like. I compared it side by side with my friends 1st Gen Ipod Touch and it was the same hue. Nice and white/blue. I LOVE IT! Also no pixelation of blacks in videos like on my 3g, no light leaks, couldnt be better
This has been my experience as well.
The screen on the 3G S is actually really good and the olephopic coating is amazing.
Original Poster, Get used to it,
this is no longer a boutique item, welcome to mass-production, lowest common denominator, ect, things we use to attribute to Microsoft....
8 is the new 10...
Boom well said, the truth sucks, and its hard for hardcore fanboys to swallow...
The screen looks perfectly fine to me.
What are you talking about?
Actually, there is an update but it cannot be updated via iTunes update. You have to click restore instead of update and let it download the new build. If you compare numbers in "about" afterwards, it changes. There is a thread on this somewhere on the forum.
It may or may not work. Some people said it fixed it, others saw no difference.
Looking at one now and it looks just fine
