Some Sony Xperia S units have a faulty display, Sony addresses the issue
There is a whole lot to love about the Sony Xperia S: it has a gorgeous display, snappy camera, and a catchy design. (More on that in our Sony Xperia S Review.) However, it is not entirely free of glitches, as some users are now finding out.
The display on a few Sony Xperia S units exhibits a yellow tint under certain conditions, and many unlucky users who have purchased a faulty unit are now reaching out to the interwebs for a solution. Fortunately, an official response from Sony has already been posted. It goes as follows:
Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smartphones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius. This is limited to a small number of units and the cause of this has been corrected. Any consumer observing this slight yellow tint on the display of their Xperia S is welcome to contact their local customer service centre and Sony Mobile Communications will resolve this at no cost to the consumer.
So there you have it, folks! If the display on your Sony Xperia S does not look quite right, perhaps you can ask for a replacement.
