Customer concerns that the Xperia S develops a yellow screen tint in certain conditions have been corroborated by Sony
In a statement sent to CNET’s UK wing, the phone-maker said that the issue is only apparent on a limited number of handsets and that it develops when the phone overheats.
Sony stated: "Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smartphones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius."
Sony went on to pin the blame on a fault in the manufacturing process, which it claims has since been addressed.
And if you’re one of those who has been affected already, the company has pledged to resolve the problem “at no cost to the consumer’. So that’s nice.
The Xperia S, which packs a 4.3-inch screen that won plaudits across the board in the tech press, is the first handset to emerge from the House of Sony since its split with long-time mobile partner Ericsson late last year.
