Some Nexus S users are complaining that the Android 2.3.3 upgrade turned their screen yellow
Here's something interesting. A number of Nexus S owners are complaining that their display showed a yellowish-tint and a washed-out appearance after the device was upgraded to Android 2.3.3. While it is uncertain whether or not the upgrade somehow interfered with the color controls on the Super AMOLED display, the results are quite noticeable.

Any Nexus S owners out there having this problem with the screen after updating to Gingerbread? What did you do to correct the problem? You can reply by posting in the comments box below.

But it's an android phone. It's open source. And android users claim to be smart. So I'm sure android users can fix it themselves, right?

i am really frustrated by android..i've just updated to 2.3.3 on my N1. but how google is telling it as new os?? its just an update of existing one. no new feature even it is consuming more internal memory space - so less place to install apps (even apps2sd bcoz delvik consumes huge cache in internal memory), more memory consumption, still no luck in pptp vpn, lots of applications are available in settings but not visible in menu.... google should stop playing with people by releasing beta os...please dont ask me to root the OS. even i am software engineer, i hate to root to get required features. android is going to see the same fate as linux (open source = illegal unwanted child)...

Wait your a software sorry but i dont beleive that. You sound more like a person that been using a iphone there whole life. 2.3.3 is a new os for Nexus One. The N1 never had 2.3 beside the involvement of rooting. And your talking rooting is like selling your body. The OS is open for God's sake if the majority of people that enjoy there Androids discover that rooting gives you more open choice without being illegal. And do you know you can control the cache by clearing it. Theres an option for that.

Before saying there is no new features I would like you to check this link Now you may be talking about the UI getting no big changes... with the current idea of android being complicated changing the UI will also be troublesome. Also you don't need to root I'm order to use al the features offered on the OS. Now back to topic it seems the Google / Samsung combo was kinda bad

i never use an iPhone. previously i was using s60 devices but from last 6 months this N1 is with me. even after the update there are many issues exists. still extreme resource hogging, no pptp connection, slowing down over time. for every OS there should be some control fromtheir manufacturer is not giving any update. kernal level. what is this stupid idea that someone have to wait for his manufacturer to get update?? 6 months old handset now become history bcoz all of them are screwing android as they want - really frustrated by the fragmentation.

I think i Haven't questioned what kind if phone you are using just stood that every UI Comes with a certain number of convenient changes... second I believe fragmentation is an issue but O think is more cause due to the "Smart Feature phones" (the cheap smartphones) that are just a pain in the ass... now if they focus on making one phone that carries their legacy and gets udates while they make cheap smartphones tied to no bounds we will see something better... now i think Google should adress the issue as its being proved that manufacturers ARE on Google campus i think they should agree on some sort of idea
