After the yellow burn in the screen that spot went dead and wouldn't register taps. I replaced the LCD and its working like new.

Thumbs up Temp Solution:
Try this out guys put your phone in the freezer (yes that cold box in your kitchen) for a good 5-10 minutes while its ON.

Pull it out and leave it alone as it adapts back to normal temps. Open up a white background / app like gmail and you will see the yellow marks will be diminished.

I say this is a temporary solution because It might go back to the dark yellow caused by the adhesive paste under the glass screen.
This is the cheapest fix without having to replace the screen. glass.

Good luck I am no responsible if you freeze your phone

I contacted Lg to see if this is a known problem, and they said they would do nothing. It's too bad because I really like the phone in every other matter.

Is there any kind of petition to get LG to acknowledge this problem and fix i?. It seems like this is a factory defect that they need to address. Let's get on Twitter and YouTube and make some noise!

I sold my LG G2 because LG Portugal refused to fix it and bought a NOTE 4 I will never buy any LG smartphone and I warn all my friends not to do it also.

Some users were able to get it fixed by LG...

Yellow spots.... i hate you. Just got my phone back from warranty, they told me that the phone has mechanical schocks and this void the warranty. Thank you LG Romania! And this was my last LG phone ever!

I've got this on an LG G2 white one, it is annoying but not worth replacing the screen on it (since my warranty is out) and the phone is worth double a screen replacement. I had flash problems with a black one I had from LG's web site and LG refused to sort it out.. although I like the features of the phone, I've had GPS issues on this too.... useless! My Galaxy S3 was much better and never had these random issues! I'll be moving back to a Samsung for my next phone I think...
