That's GREAT!! Keep a close eye on the screen though over the next couple of weeks, as some users have found their new Xperia S to be fine at first, then after a couple of weeks or so the tint starts to appear. By the way did you receive your new phone from Sony themselves?

Good news, seems like AB / AC phones are fine!

Some people with touch firmware "6" have yellow tints (only a few people), and generally what I've read so far is that touch firmware "6" screens are more yellow than "7" screens (with no yellow tints).

expect 80% chance of returning the phone, best bet is to wait a few months or buy a different phone.

Sony wont care as long as people are buying.

they will start sweating and maybe fix the issue when people stop buying and their sales drop

I've got a 12w11 AAAB and got the yellow tint on the bottom of the screen, I've had the XS for close to a month now and noticed the yellow tint last weekend.

Going to exchange mine today.

I've got Touch Firmware 7 btw.

LOL, well it's kind of fun... cause you keep sending them back and forth... they should say more like "buy a sony and have fun while we will replace it until we can give you a good one"

I got my replacement from T-Mobile Netherlands.

Sony told them it's a known manufacturing fault.
And T-Mobile Netherlands has a policy that you can get your phone replaced within 2 months when you have manufacturing errors/fault
