Default [Q] How to quickly know whether your screen is defective?

Hello everyone,

I need some help. I live in Dubai and I'm going to buy a Z1 in the coming days. My problem is - I want to know how to tell straight away whether my phone is the one with a defective yellowish tint or a normal brilliant sony display. Im more or less a noob and reading through the threads here I haven't been able to ascertain this and instead have been left quite confused.

I was hoping one of the experts on here could help me come up with a quick way (e.g. turning it on and checking for a setting or firmware etc.) or even just turning it on and looking for something in particular. This is something I can quickly do in the retail outlet without waiting till I get home and then coming back and fighting with the store (as is commonplace in the middle east haha). I had the Z before and now I'm using a horrible horrible BB Z10 and the only thing stopping me from walking into a store and picking up the Z1 is this!

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

You can go to setting > about device > diagnostics > test device > scree and see if I is white or yellowish, if you ware not sure about it, go to the same place on the phone showed for testing and compare them.

Checked it one month ago in Sony Store at Dubai Mall (right ahead when You come from rail-station "Dubai Mall" entering the mall). Compared exhibit devices with my Z1: all the same brilliant screens ............... people were quite nice there, shouldn´t be a problem to check Your purchased device: if screen is pure white and sharp under the illumination at Dubai Mall Your device is okay. Maybe You can ask them to let You check against a Galaxy Note in the store opposite to Sony´s when You leave a full deposite ...............
