    Mine was mainly on the sides left side was real bad. Well I returned it,so sorry Motorola nice hardware that suffers with that 1st year bugs

    Right side for me. Still, just because it's faded doesn't mean it's over. I wanted to unlock the bootloader, but I can't go voiding the warrantee when I may end up needing it.

    I'll probably return it and wait for the US release of the G 5G equivalent.

    If all it needed was a break-in, that should've been done at the factory.

    I am in the same situation. I see the green tint, but it isn't as bad as when I first turned it on.

    I posted a new thread over in the Q&A with a poll about it. The moto support forums are starting to buzz with folks complaining, and the best buy reviews are starting to roll in with photos. Moto may have a slightly big problem on their hand.

    UK model (single sim) MOTP-EDGBLK - same issue.
    Only apparent when the brightness is below 50%.

    I returned mine back to Amazon and bought another - after 3 days, same issue.

    Gave up, got a refund and bought a Pixel 5.
    Such a shame, I really liked the Moto Edge design, size and battery life. Unfortunately it seems that Motorola can't make phones, had a screen related issue on my Moto X Force a few years back too, seems like Motorola have not improved at all.

    I assume it's difficult to have good yields due to the waterfall design. There could be a relatively high failure for this type of design.

    It's funny how my 2nd Edge is exhibiting the same green tint. I was so sure I could put this behind me.

    The waterfall design isn't new though. Other OEMs have made similar style displays (Samsung, OPPO etc) and none then have such a high failure rate like this.

    I changed the theme to white in all apps, it's weird because the only color that appears green is grey
    Green tint seems to come before purple streaks and double images, no? Look at reviews on best buy, green tint is the least of your worries.

    Also you could use swift installer to make certain apps black. I only noticed the green tint cause I happened to have another phone next to the edge.

    3 days in from bestbuy retail stock, box has a 20 october 2020 date on it. No screen issues. Of course, when I have the light theme enabled there are often situations where I can see a slight greenish/grey hue to the edge as it begins to curve. That's just optics and not at all as some of the pics I have seen. Sweet ride so far.

    As of December 8th, no more purple blotches, which has shadows of the notification bar, and cutout. Hasn't happened in about 2 weeks. I did notice, with the latest build(October), that the battery drains a touch faster. Still don't know if it's curing of screen materials, or update.
