New smartphones have developed a reputation over the years for occasionally arriving a bit jaundiced, showing a yellow tint to their displays. When the Apple iPhone 4 first launched, owners complained of yellowish patches that marred their phones’ screens. We saw something similar last summer with the displays on the Samsung Galaxy S II. The latest to fall victim to this yellow curse is Sony’s Xperia S, which the company now admits experienced some manufacturing issues.

The problem with the Xperia S is transient and temperature-dependent, with the yellow only really showing up after the phone gets sufficiently warm. Additionally, Sony claims that the issues that led to this situation should only end up affecting a small number of phones out there, and that it’s already modified its production process to avoid the problem in the future.

Granted, it would have been nice for Sony to catch this glitch before releasing the problem phones in the first place, but at least it sounds like it’s doing the right thing to remedy the situation, offering to exchange Xperia S models with these yellowing screens at no cost. If yours is acting up, get in touch with Sony to receive details about having your handset replaced.
