I purchased two 3G phones; one for wife and one for myself. One phone has a screen with a "color temperature" like the 1st gen while the other has the infamous yellow-cast. My problem is not so much with the screens, but with Apple's explanation and obvious quality control issues.

At 1st I wasn't a believer of the "yellow screen" issue however now having my last iphone 3G 16gb break on me & having a new replacement I definitely notice it now. My last model did not have the yellow tint.. this one is definitely noticeable

Can anyone verify if the new software upgrade 2.0.1 solve the yellow piss screen issue?

frankly I agree with Toothfairy. I joe the yellowish tint. The colors look much more crisp an vibrant not to mention the text being clearer to read. With my 2G iPhone I had to always use my reading glasses. With the 3g I can get by without.
I really don't know what the big deal is. I hated the blah stark yucky shade of blue on the old iphone and modded it to a warmer shade.

Warm runs in the clour spectrum from yellow through red. Photolab printers are always balanced on the 'warm' side (along with a grey scale) to give more accurate scene reproduction.
So maybe Apple had in mind to improve the colour balance of the camera, a benficial 'accident' if it was not by design.
