Some Sony Xperia S Units Are Reported to Have Display With Yellow Tint
The Sony Xperia S came under the radar recently due a display issue that could be caused by internal overheating. Sony has acknowledged this issue by publishing a statement that it has identified a number of devices that have slight yellow tint when the internal temperature goes beyond 40 degrees Celsius. Sony assured that the issue only plagues a limited number of Xperia S units and affected users can go the nearest Sony retailer to get their handsets replaced for free.
The Sony Xperia S comes with a pretty awesome display, its 4.3” IPS display has 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, which results in a very high pixel density of 342 ppi, higher than the pixel density of iPhone 4S (330 ppi) and the new iPad (264 ppi). The screen is protected by scratch-resistant and oleophobic layers. The phone also packs a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8260 CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Its 12 Mp rear-facing camera is enhanced by the Exmor R sensor, which can record 1080p videos smoothly. It only weighs 144 grams and the external memory slot supports up to 32GB of microSD card. The phone still uses Android 2.3 Gingerbread and an update to Android 4.0 ICS will arrive in coming months. The Xperia S is Sony’s first phone after its recent break up with the Swedish company, Ericsson and it had done well in many reviews but more importantly, users seem to like it.
