hey ppl i had bought s2 on 9th n i found that yellow tint in the above page mentioned and alos in notification in s2,
it was on d bottom left side.
and one more shockin thing, when u reduce ur brightness to low n u capture some images of white surface or u click pictures of road in sunlight u ll find some pink spots in d center.
and this defect is almost in all s2.
it was also in the demo whic was in the samsung store,
to see the defect all u hav to do is low down ur brightnes,
go to camera, click some pics of white surface closely or take so pics of road in day time n then increase the brightness and see those images whic u hav clickd,
u wil definatly finds some pink spots in it.
i found both the defects yellow tint n pink spots and dey replaced my s2 and told me to wait for some better soln for that defects.
sorry for bad eng :(
I have my SGS2 for approx. 1 month. I used your test page to see if my cell has the above problem(with different brightness setting, from the lowest to the brightest)...well there are 2 conclusions:
1.Either I have sight problems because I don't see anything. Even with very, very, very close inspection I don't see it
2.My phone has no problems.
Please Samsung give us some feedback!! Issue or feature?
Got my hands on the SGS2 last week. Yellow tint was common, i thought. But my phone had other display defect, a dark ring like shadow on the bottom of the screen. Got that replaced and now a white spot.....What the toot? I expect them to bring awesome devices and they just bring it no matter what they have to sacrifice(quality). I guess inorder to meet the huge demand they have been doing this. BTW my friend who bought this phone upon my advice doesnt have such problems..I checked his..I am gonna take my 2nd S2 tomorrow for a claim, GOD knows whats gonna happen next...A word of advice for the people at SAMSUNG, please add a "QUALITY CONTROL DEPT." at your manufacturing plants :P
If you have to go to those lengths to observe the defect then its hardly a defect now is it?
I bought my beast y'day, its awwwesome!! All nokia fanboys here, pls wake up to the fact that nokia is headed to the drains- there is absolutely no coming back, unless they go for android.
Um I wouldn't laugh at any issues with Samsung phones because they sell parts to Apple - to the tune of 5.7 billion (2010).

Trying to see if I have the yellow tint, but photos taken can't see any http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=14654383#post14654383
why worry about the screen having or not having a slight tinge on the screen when displaying a 'neutral grey' background anyway? everything else on it looks fantastic! if you need to view neutral grey backgrounds, you may as well stare at a wall

On XDA and other formus some users posted that they have a burn-out effect on their SGS. I also own a SGS and didn't notice any burn-out effect, but it doesn't mean it's out there.
I really don't want to have a 2 year old phone with a noticable burn-out effect!
Happily there are custom ROMs with custom dark themes that can postpone or even prevent the burn-out effect (I hope!).

I know what the problem is, quite simple really.
It's a Samsung.
Why do people keep expecting Samsung to release anything that is faultless? LoL. See you all in 6 months when your phones start to malfunction completely. LoL
there is no such defect in the fone.
its jus rumors.
people say that they see yellow tint and see pink colour in video recording, trust me all that is bullshit.
i have it and its just rockin fone up til date.
if any 1 thnikin to buy it , i ll say dnt thnik more go ahead n buy it..
(sry for english)
chaitu, 07 Jun 2011this is great, when somebody says galaxy s2 has display issue, gsmarena jumps in and posts it,... morebecause the Nokia N8 is a piece of cr@p and GSM arena knows this lol :P
(just my opinion, but when Nokia tells me that there is a KNOWN and COMMON fault with their N8 but refuses to recall them, I get a little unhappy with them)
I have the same effect, but it seems to be a burn-in effect of yellow areas (comparable to white on plasma TV's). I can see the same pattern there, as i have on my start screen.
Is this is the reason, we need to see how super AMOLED behaves on a long term basis.
