Some Xperia S users complaining of yellow tint display issue

by XB on 21/03/2012

in Problems, Xperia S


Now that the Sony Xperia S is out in many markets across the world, we are starting to hear about some users complaining about problems with their display. We’ve seen comments both on our forum and over at xda-developers about a yellow tint (or spot) towards the bottom of the handset. We’ve included some pictures below from different users that highlights the issue to varying degrees.

For some people, the yellow spot is very prominent, whereas for others they are seeing a yellow tint to the very bottom of the screen and is much harder to notice. It typically can be seen on a white background, for example when browsing. Just to be clear, our Xperia S exhibits none of these traits, so we imagine this affects a minority of units.

From the sounds of it, the first case seems like a display defect and people who have had this problem have had their handsets exchanged by Sony. Their new phones do not appear to have this problem. Regarding the yellow tint, it is difficult to know whether this is a display or software issue. It could simply be the glue that holds the display together that should vaporise over time. If anyone is experiencing any display problems then please let us know in the comments below.

    why do people complain about that? is their life so boring that they have no other problems apart from this, and cry about it?!
    It’s not like ruining the picture when you view one. only when it becomes really noticeable and ruining the screen as a whole then you can complain about it, but you have to really see that there’s a problem, cor

  • Kjetil B. Thomassen

     You should complain about that dead pixel. It should not be there, at least not so soon. There is a known problem with dead pixels on LCD screens, but I have only seen that on my 19″ TV, and the supplier replaced it with a new one.

    Got it. It’s ain’t big, but when I see the picture include white or other bright colours, it’s looks like surface with wallpaper. Like there is something under the picture. Hm.. S x S was bought on the Polish market.

  • Kms899

    you cannot complain about the dead pixels, the international standard is 3 or more, then you can exchange it, or it’s upto the seller to replace it if less than 3.

  • Noblewolf414

    It is the screen burn! I have it too.. Look at the home screen, at the home icon on the center, there is an illumination around it. That causes the yellow tint overtime.

    I’ve got it too. I noticed it after browsing for a 30 minutes or so.
    It seems like a weird place to have a heat issue as the phone gets hot at the upper end of the device and then only when playing games and other more demanding apps.

    Maybe there’s less isolation at that place or something…

  • Dr Mah82

    Fucking sony in my country is refusing to exchange my device. Thumb down Sony. No service like apple. How the fuck international warranty and not covered here in saudi arabia. And i have very prominent yellow spot which i noticed come after using the devise shortly. It is for sure has something to do when the device become more hot.

    If you would see it – as I have it on my phone – you would complain too. It’s very annoying. Especially, that this is supposed to be a high-end device and not an entry level piece of plastic.

    Finally a forum that has this problem! Thanks for the pics avex btw; sorry that you felt ripped off.
    My phone screen also displays this problem. I was fuming about it but my provider has offered a rapid replacement. I hope the next one does not do this as I adore the phone but this problem is infuriating due to many people desiring the phone for the crisp display; the high quality makes defects stand out that much more!

  • Pmac2k

    My unit has this issue, O2UK are going to do a doorstep swap for a new one.  The problem occurs as the phone get s warm, it starts as a spot about 1 third of the screens width and is noticeably yellow (think urine in snow!). As the phone continues to warm up it spreads to be a frame around the entire screen.  

    The problem I have now is that O2 can’t replace it at the moment as they are out of stock of this phone completely.  Its liveable with but when your phone costs near to the £400 mark you’d want it to work correctly (and sony are saying this is a hardware issue).  I’m happy to wait as it just appears that this phone is in great demand and this appears to be a manufacturing oversight that they are willing to rectify.

    The yellow tinted problem also occur on my xperia S. I have send the hp to the sony Ericsson’s service center. All they can promise is check my phone without even promise for changing the display screen. I am so disappointed with the Sony in Malaysia branched.Moreover, Sony claim the UV coated of the cover will repel dirt but it so obvious that the cover will turn to yellow and some of the stain are hardly to be removed!!! Again, i ask the people in service center. All they say is the cover not under warranty and very expensive if wan to change it…Sony design…i have no more good comment to this product…

    Not only at the bottom portion but also at the top. Try to open google, then view it in landscape and you’ll see a yellow tint or smudge like at the top of the screen. When you view it in landscape, then it should be at the left part of the screen.

  • Kimhilton

    The yellow smudge burns my eyelids so now, I’m wearing dark glasses to protect my beautiful eyes. Hey, it’s one of my assets!

    However, when I’ve red the whole documentation that came with the box, it says there that IT IS a product feature – and I quote “…..a yellow smudge will appear on the screen after 1 – 3 weeks use to remind anyone who bought our super ‘duper’ deluxe smart phone that it is equally a bloated junk like the ip4s by people from hell like in any typical marketing deparment. This is a reasonable ploy for neurotic, stupid, naive people brought upon in this world not because of love between their parents (but plainly because of libido). This is for those who think that having a cool expensive smartphone would improve their miserable lives when they could only heave a lonely sigh every night because they were born to suffer. So, thank you for your purchase!!!”, end quote.

    Well, there you go. Can anyone post a cool place where I can download more stuff to ease the pain of living our miserable lives?

    fault that i bought sony phone and found it faulty, i don’t want to get

    Experiencing the yellow tint issue. Bottom screen. Also top screen very subtle discoloration. As dont have a warranty (but phone is in mint condition) i wonder if they will repair it, change screen or other. In Sweden they charge screen subtitution without warranty. Are there some consumer rights that apply here even if you dont have warranty? On another note, phone is perfect.

    I’ve had my Xperia S for just over a month and mine has developed the ‘yellow tint’ at the bottom of the screen. Also at the very top edges. Contacted Sony who said I have to send the phone to them for repair which meant I’d be without a phone for up to 2 and a half weeks! I’m not going through that so contacted Carphone Warehouse as thats where I got the phone and they have said to call in at any of there stores and they will do an express replacement….whatever that means! Fingers crossed they’ll sort it as I’ll be heading there tomorrow [18/5/2012]

  • N Trecias

    Yes I have the same problem. As well my phone stucks some times. I mean on some game or program. And while batery is not discharge you can’t do nothig its just stuck. You can’t reboot, even: internal memory :-! :-D

  • Rodney Norman

    hi, I have purchased my Xperia S a month ago (11 April 2012). initiall the screen did not show any sign of yellow tint or should i say it was so light i could not notice.  its a month now and it is very pominent. i had a talk with the customer care and they informed me that my phone cannot be exchanged as its 1 month and xchange can be done within 1 week of purchase
    Q: where is this documented, nither the site nor the manual.
    another question is if Sony is accepting that this is a manufacturing problem with some of the initial manufactured hand set, the sony should help its customer and xchange ther handset. (its just a month old).

    Sony can contact me.

    There sewms to be another problem which I have noticed with the Xperia S White. It freezes and when it does this the battery inside gives off incredible heat. It does this when it is turned off.

  • Alex

    Doesn’t seem like a software issue to me, more likely a problem with display quality. I think the spot appeared in hotter weather when the phone was pressed in a pocket against a wallet (no extreme force though, so such things should not happen to a quality product). The spot comes and goes and may appear in different areas of the screen, but mostly in its lower part.

  • Andry122

    Hello, Im a new user of XS. I just bought this phone yesterday, and I just found out about this yellow tint now.

    Reading LOTS of people complaining about this yellow tint, and Sony WON’T give any responsibility to people who already spent LOTS OF MONEY BUYING THIS DEFECT PRODUCT, I’m just thinking WTF is Sony thinking, releasing a product with factory defect like this? This phone is not cheap for God’s sake, and it’s a flagship too.

    Geez, have you guys really lower your credibility into some shitty brand?

    Anyway, it’s still a wonderful phone though :)

    I too suffered this problem after a month of using the phone.
    Ive since had it replaced twice and about o recieve a third one all because of the same issue..

    The phone seems to be very poorly designed, all that extra power from the dual core causes it to overheat. Ive never felt a phone get as hot as this does when using the screen for anything longer than 10 mins.
    Major dissapointment after waiting so long for what looked like a very good phone.

    I sent mine in for repair. It was quick, only took a week. How ever they appear to have fixed my screen by making it all slightly yellow. It now looks like the phone of a heavy smoker. :-)

    Its either just totally froze up or the full screen goes yellow and then a black screen, all you can do is force close the phone as nothing works, do I goto sony or o2. Thank you

    Hi. Were there any reports of the same issue happening on Xperia U? I have one here and it’s just 4 months old. It is also having problems with the screen. Particularly with the tint thingy, I think it is also occurring on my screen everything I play games for like more than 15 minutes. It looks like a discoloration on the 4 corners of the screen. It is more like pink color rather than yellow on the xperia S as reported by users. It also happens after 15 minutes of browsing the net, on google play and playing videos. Any suggestion or any sort of help will be highly appreciated. thanks.
