    Hi guys! So I've had my (week 21) iphone 4 for about 2 months now (funny huh? bought it and was surprised it had such a low serial number). I thought it was perfect until I held it against my friend's iphone 4 which was somewhat bluish (w41) and I held it against my girlfriends iphone 4 which was much bluer than either of ours. Is this normal? Is my iPhone defective? or is this product variance. I'm pretty sure it's not that glue problem. Because it would've dried by now. :confused: :) Thanks ahead of time you guys.

    Theres actually a lot of threads on this issue. I consider it a curse.....type in on google "iPhone 4 yellow tinted screen" and tons of thing will pop up from here and apple support.

    Can you take photos? I've heard lots about yellow screens but never a blue one...
    The quick Google I did just turned up a bunch of random blue covers and even a blue screen protector! lol

    Depends on how yellow. For the most part, it's a blessing if you're into color accuracy.

    Its not a problem. Some people think it is but they are wrong, and most people prefer blue tinted. Yellow and blue are both technically problems. A LCD should be neutral for the most part, yellow is too warm and blue is too cool. For perfect color accuracy it should be neutral. So dont bother taking it back for a replacement.

    If you prefer White backgrounds, try to get a blue tint....if you prefer crisp photos...keep yellow.

    Exactly, even tho white has a slight blue tint. Perfect colours is completely neutral regarding tempuratures
