Yellowish smudge seemingly affecting some OnePlus 3 screens
posted by Florin T. / Jun 30, 2016, 11:58 PM
Two OnePlus 3 users made videos - embedded below - to illustrate how the yellowish smudge is covering large portions of the screens when they display grey tones. Granted, most of the customers who purchased a OnePlus 3 don't seem to have encountered this problem, so this shouldn't be a reason not to buy the phone (if you were planning to). Plus, if you do buy it and you discover that, for whatever reason, you don't like it, OnePlus allows you to return the handset within 15 days, no questions asked.
Released earlier his month in select markets, the OnePlus 3 costs $399 (unlocked), and offers plenty of features that you usually see only on more expensive smartphones, including a Snadpragon 820 processor, and a lot of RAM (6 GB, to be precise). You can find out much more about the device by checking out our OnePlus 3 review.

Why complaint? You pay for cheap price, you get for this :)

Kind of like the bending issue with the first iPhone 6 Plus. You pay a cheap price so its what you get.....oh wait. It wasn't cheap. Damn. Invalid point you just made.

Another completely unrelated comment. WTF does that have to do with native storage, 4k recording, the OnePlus 3's yellow smudge problem, or any#@^ing thing whatsoever? What the hell is with this hardon you have against the S4? What the $#@! are you blithering about? And your friend is an idiot for keeping precious photos on a phone that could easily be lost or stolen without backing them up first.

I'd suggest you hold the device in your hand and feel how well-built it is. Other manufacturers like Samsung could have priced their flagships close to OnePlus' prices had they chose to ditch marketing. Now, for the price of OP3 you are getting an absolutely gorgeous solid phone with top notch internals. In every production, especially the 1st batch, there will be inevitable rare quality issues which will be fixed in later batches.

$400 isn't cheap at all. It may be cheap to you. Many people in the world have household incomes for a whole month that is less than that. I understand what you are saying in context, that it is a "cheap" phone vs alternatives. But no matter what you pay, you expect the product to work a certain way and when it doesn't it is a problem. No matter how big or small.

Guys it's not like displays can be perfect! LCDs will have backlight bleed and AMOLED will have burn in and display banding... AMOLED have lower chances of these issues but may have accidentally skipped the eyes of QC! So stop complaining and just get it repaired or replaced! It's just 2 people... no need to blow it out of proportion!!!

It's probably the adhesive again, they had this issue with some previous phones, it disappears over time. Or if you have a UV lamp handy (which we all do!) use that on the display and it will probably fix it.

Every OEM has had this issue where the glue hasn't completely dried and it shows a yellowish color. Apple, Samsung and other have had this. It isn't an issue. As long as the glue dries, it should go away. if not, you just replace it. I don't see an issue, unless its hardware related. Which since its in one spot like that, its not a hardware issue.
