Some Samsung Galaxy S II displays are turning yellow

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.

Now if this isn't proof that Samsung isn't copying our handsets then I don't know what is. They are even copying our flaws! ITS A CONSPIRACY I TELL YOU!

The iphone's display is not supplied by Samsung. Just because Samsung supplied Apple with a couple of parts, it does not make the iphone a Samsung phone all in all.

I have a Samsung Moment, and I've noticed from time to time on my old AMOLED display that it does "leak yellow". Especially when I turn off auto-brightness, and turn the display down all the way at night, on a gray or darkish gray almost black color it does infact show a weird off yellowish color. Now, at this point I've had the phone for so long, and am about to get an upgrade, it doesnt bother me.

Sometimes I am glad Europe gets phones first before hitting the states cause most of the defects..etc....can be corrected and we end up with a better product at the end.

Amoled is Overrated!! Just like iPhone in general. Those few advantages that Apple (and Samsung) has in some areas can be compensate with other strong points of other brands, nothing special... Only advertising industry made iCraps and AMOLEDs what they are today. And people has become more and more stupid in trying to simplify their life... So they believe everything and everyone who tells them what to buy, what is the ultimate piece of hardware... Come on! Stupid cattle! Unlike those brainless majority, I do not want to pay 20 or 30 % more for almost the same hardware and loads of useless software... Furthermore, I don't want to buy new device every now and then... What do they think I am, buying machine? I don't want to work just to buy!! (and so that people who think they can throw everything down my throat can earn big time...) no, not anymore sir.. :-)
