    My white iPhone 4s is turning brown under the apple logo. Anyone experiencing this?

    If you are serious, it may be an overheating problem. Take it to Apple.

    Mine is doing this too!! Have you bothered taking it to the Apple store yet just to see what they say? I just noticed it over the past day or two and haven't had a chance to take it in yet --- not expecting them to care, really.

    I'm also interested in seeing pics. Not that I don't believe you, but I just want to see the severity myself as I plan to get a white iPhone

    Every white phone I have ever seen that was used for any length of time discolored in some way. No way I would have a white phone.:)

    My white 4S looks like the day I first unboxed it. Been keeping it either naked or in a white bumper. I use it constantly too.

    I too would like to see photos. Just because I'm curious as I have NEVER seen this.

    EDIT: Only fried one I have seen is one that short circuited from too much power going through through their computer and the phone causing both to crash and spark.

    Yeah, I'd like to see pics too. I had a converted iPhone 4 and even with that supposedly non-compliant back and front glass, I never had discoloration - the only issue was the white button was a little darker than the rest of the glass. Never had brown spots on it.

    My white iPhone 4S has no discoloration anywhere. Not saying it can't happen, but a brown spot in the back? Pics please.

    "My phone has an echo and it's turning brown." Pull it out of your ass.

    I don't really think that this is discoloration. The back panel is of varying thickness, and there are odd tricks that the light pulls around the logo. If you had inspected the phone as carefully back when you bought it as you are right now, you would have noticed that there is always some kind of "dark aura"-type effect around the logo under direct lighting.
