You might think twice in getting the new Samsung Galaxy S II after getting reports from customers who are complaining about getting display problems with their newly purchased Samsung Galaxy S II. Reports from the XDA-developer forums says that the SuperAMOLED display of the SGSII exhibits yellow discoloration at the lower left side of their device.
The discoloration can easily be detected when the phone’s display’s brightness is set to a low setting. Light colored text displays a tint of yellow when imposed on a dark neutral background. The effect can be subtle that most people don’t notice it. Also, setting the brightness to 100% will eliminate the discoloration. However, it is still undeniable that this defect is present.
Samsung has not made any announcements yet to address this issue. If you have recently purchased your Samsung Galaxy S II and you have experienced something similar to the one described here, I suggest that you return your device to your seller and have it replaced. Be sure to check for signs of discoloration when getting your new device.
Contrary to other reports, Google‘s modification of Android for different color temperatures has nothing to do with this problem since this is obviously a hardware problem.
