Yellow banding is this light yellowish color you'll notice at the bottom part of the screen when you have a white screen. Barely noticeable for me, I do have it a little. I heard the latest builds of the device don't have it anymore.

I have a late november built and i have noticed some on mine but I am VERY picky with things like that, i bet most people wouldnt notice that.

I came from Nexus 5 and i am very very happy now.
- battery lasts 2 full days for my usage, N5 barely made one day
- screen is much better, colours brightness and size
- sound is much better and louder
- bit better specs
- camera can be better and worse, depending on the conditions

The only issue for me was/is touchscreen, I have flashed franco kernel and its much better but still sometimes when scrolling down, screen register it as a tap, never happened on N5.
...and poor/cheap sounding vibrations

Forgot to mention build quality which in my opinion is AMAZING and the packaging! The whole unboxing experience is what you would expect from 600 phone not 229.

Would recomend OPO to everyone.

Yes, I have a late Oct build and no yellow tint (though others seemed to have it). I can sometimes convince myself that something might be there, but obviously this is not a major issue for me. It does seem to be less prevalent in the newer models. It is subjective though, doesn't impact functionality and outside 14 day no questions asked return period, will not qualify for RMA. More threads on the OP forum.

I am very happy with my OPO however, battery is fantastic and stock CM is brilliant.

I'm loving everything except for the camera. The camera is decent at best, but usually mediocre the majority of the time. My shots always come out slightly blurry or out of focus, even when tapping to focus on shots. Auto mode isn't very reliable.

Do you guys regularly use Steady Shot or Clear Image? What does Clear Image mean? I find Steady Shot results in shots that are much too dark.

Otherwise, I am enjoying my OPO. Just wish the camera had OIS or better image processing... I end up having to take multiple shots just to ensure I get a good one, and that's frustrating.
