    I bought my iphone 4 a week ago.
    Today I compared it with my friend's iphone, and I noticed that my screen is look a little bit yellow, and not white like my friend's.
    I asked someone and he told me that there are 2 factories that one create the iphone withe yellow light and one with white light.

    Is it true?

    Thanks alot!

    Actually there are more than 2 factories. Some of them produce screens with warm color and others with cold color.

    I've read through lots of threads on the yellow tint. On Saturday I went to the Genius Bar as I had a problem with Bluetooth/WiFi on my launch day iPhone 4. I was given a replacement, the Genius activated so I would have a phone. I asked him about the yellow tint iPad 2s - my screen is great; a friend's is very yellow! He said, oh, that's like the iPhone 4s but the screen got better after a couple of weeks - your friend needs to give it time. So, I get home and synch my iPhone and start using it on Sunday when I notice that my screen has a terrible yellow tint. Will this go away or do I go back to the Genius Bar? My "broken" iPhone 4 had a perfect screen - nice and bright! My iPad 2 is very white - my iPhone 4 has a yellow tent. Very obvious on and other white pages!

    From my understanding, this is not normal. Friends I know that have had this issue, took their phones to Apple, and got it replaced. What's the point of having a retina display that doesn't show the proper colours.

    Its normal but most people dont like it. I had a HARD time replacing mine but finally found one. Even though I have scratches on my screen, Id never replace this due to mostly every iPhone 4 in my area having a yellow tint. Yuck.

    I went back with mine and the "genius" said she couldn't see it but we tried 4 different phones from black boxes and all were the same. After awhile it was hard for me to see under their bright lights. However, yesterday while using both my iPhone and iPad - something I've done for the past year - it was VERY obvious. May go back to another Apple Store next week but trying to give it a week in case it is a curing issue! I will say that the "Genius" was getting pretty annoyed - wouldlove to know what she wrote in my record!
