Some Samsung Galaxy S II displays are turning yellow
Nothing has the ability to cool off a hot handset like a defect in the screen. And while no device has been as buzzworthy lately as the Samsung Galaxy S II, the device has been the subject of some problems with its display; while it might not seem apparent from the picture, the Super AMOLED screen on the device has been turning yellow on the left side, and is noticeable when the brightness level is low and the background color is white or grey.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has not yet been officially announced in the States, which means that the Korean based manufacturer has time to fix the problem before launching the U.S. version of the phone, expected to be available at three of the top 4 U.S. carriers (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint). You might recall a similar problem happening to the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple told those with a yellowish screen that the discoloration would eventually go away-which it did. Perhaps Samsung will simply parrot back Apple's solution to the problem of yellowing displays. If waiting for the discoloration to fade doesn't solve the problem, it will be up to Samsung to find out what is causing this and what the solution is to remedy the problem.
