    I'll make a quick report. I've never had luck with any iPhone 4's while the iPhone 4 was out, I'm real real picky about the white/blue hue screen and I swapped it out a total of 7 times and every single one of them were unacceptable to my standards, some worse than others so I finally settled for an okay one with a slight gray hue rather than the yellow pissy hue. Onto the 4S, launch day phone was pretty good I'd say but I had problems with it so unfortunately I had to get that one swapped out - C39 is the one they swapped it out with and it's soso, at an angle you can see the hue change yellowish, but straight on it's slightly grayer I guess,

     

    Just swapped that one out today for a DQGH and this phone is by far the absolute WORSE **** colored screen I have ever seen in my life, it's just outright atrocious. I was the last appointment today and was in a rush to get out of there so I didn't bother looking at the screen when I took it back home, soon as I booted that piece of *** up I was like **** - making a trip tomorrow and getting it swapped out again. Hopefully I'll luck out, sick of these screens.

    @ReineOnTheCourt,

     

    I would say go for it. I have a white model and have no yellow tint. Of course, color does not matter because both black and white can have this symptom.

     

    If you are not satisfied with the purchase, you can always go return/exchange if you are within 30 day return period. If you are past 30 days, then you will have to go through the Genius Bar to get it replaced.

    I will update my story to anyone who follows me in this topic. Today (Friday 13th), I replaced my iPhone with yellow screen on my mobile operator in Brazil. To my luck, I received the device screen is much better without any ugly shade of yellow. It is not as blue as the iPhone 4, but is clearly better than the other I had horrible screen. Serial number: C39.

     

    I just realized that she screen reflects more light, in some cases forming overtones. Is it normal? Also I noticed that the viewing angle is not as good as the iPhone 4. Anyway,now I'm happy with my iPhone. No thanks to Apple, but I am grateful to the mobile phone operator.

     

    Although my problem has been resolved, I will continue to follow the discussion to see if Apple fixes the problem once.

    iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1

    I went up once again Friday the 13th for a swap and got another DQGH, this time however the Genius Bar rep opened up 3 replacement phones and let me choose what one I thought looked best - first two that were opened were ugly yellow, 3rd one was finally free of the yellow screen but it's still nothing like a good iPhone 4. Blue bars are a little washed out on the screen, but the whites pop good enough so I settled for it. 64Gb iPhone 4S DQGH.

    Hi Ricky1608 ,

    U r really lucky ,I'm from China ,and have the same promblem with you ,but they have changed the 4s for me three times ,the phone is still yellow.and now they tell me , the call center of apple in china 4006272273 tell me that the phone is ok ,they cant change it for me anymore.because hardware  is ok ,the screen is not in the warranty,i mean in china there is right to protect the customer ,if there is a hardware problem with the product ,then the seller must replace or fix it ,but the apple in china says that the screen problem not include,and the yellow screen is normal ,not a problem.

    Although this is not the same issue, originally my Brand new IPhone 4S had not so good sound quality, but then as I used it more to watch my Netflix Videos, the sound actually started to get better and better. Just FYI. :-)
