Thread: 3g iPhone Yellow Screens = Apple Fail?

  1. #161
    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.

    When I compared the two yes... the first iphone did have the blue tint... and the 3G has the yellow tint...

    BUT from my comparison... looking at all kinds of pictures with both phones in which I used the same pictures on each phone... I feel the yellow tint makes the pictures more brilliant in color.

    When I compared each phone I also turned up the brightness on each phone and turned it down to do my comparisons.

    I feel the blue tint washed out some of the pictures and also writing within the phone while the yellow made the writing clearer.

    For me.... with my artistic talents and years working with my husband mixing paint for cars and one must really have a eye when painting cars I have to vote for the yellow tint on the 3G phone....

    Over all I like the brilliant colors on the 3G phone better when looking at pictures and I liked how the black writing looked clearer...

    Each one has their preference in which color they like but I like a crisp looking screen and I feel the 3G has it over the first generation iphone...
    Your observations are spot on regarding photographs. In the photo-lab business we call the blue screens 'cool' as to colour temperature, the yellow screens are called 'warm'

    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.
