Why just cant sony just give us a batch number where the this problem would not exist anymore? I think that they still havent figured out how to solve the problem because if they do then the latest batch wouldnt have any problems anymore.

Thumbs up No yellow tint. Yet.
I didn't notice any yellow tint on a screen while the temperature of the phone was 42 degrees Celsius. However, phone is relatively new and I saw reports that yellow tint appeared after several days or so. I'll keep you updated.

It's not my phone, but I'll stay with the person who got it over the weekend, so I can do deeper research if the phone is faulty or not. I guess the results would be really valuable to the community.

However, I'm new to Android devices, so I'm not sure which is the best way to find out yellow tint. What I read so far, tint appears when phone gets hotter, so I'd be thankful if anyone could provide answers to these questions:

1. How to make the phone reach higher operating temperatures? I don't really have time to play with the phone, so some kind of test, app or something similar would be more useful.
2. How to check phone's temperature and from how many degrees yellow tint appears?
3. What kind of wallpaper makes yellow tint the most noticeable?

By the way, phone was bought yesterday, so far no tint, but phone wasn't stressed enough.

I bought XPS on Friday..
I thought it was a new stock but yellow tint
issue is present..
Is it a software or hardware issue??
Some people who replaced their phones found
the same problem on the new unit as per xda.
So what should I do? Replace it or just use it
(Not a big problem now but it might get worse
overtime)?
Replacing it n getting thea new unit with same problem will be annoying.

It's hardware related from all that I have heard and read. It's really down to you if you wish to send it off for it to be repaired/replaced. I had a replacement from Sony and suffering the same issue with this handset too. Hard to say if it will get worse over time or not.

Ok.. tnx..
I think I will use it for a month or so and then
replace it .. After a month new units with no
yellow tint issue might arrive in India..

Then you might be the lucky one. Where did you buy the phone?

Most of infected ones are from Hong Kong 12W08 and then it gets to Europe. While I believe there are some that won't develop this issue but overtime like 2 to 3 weeks you should be able to see it. I didn't have it from day one but once it appeared it stayed and doesn't go away even with cool temperature.

Oh, they are all Made in China (What is not?) but French market has been having more luck with headset. Maybe you won't ever get it.

Good Luck and thanks for the report.
