Screen Defect Found In Some iPhone 3Gs

A possible defect on some of the iPhone 3G’s out there may have been spotted. One user on the MacRumors forums who upgraded to an iPhone 3G today from an old iPhone noticed a difference in the tint of the screen, reporting that they were strangely yellower than the older models in tint.

It’s not known if it is a firmware difference or faulty hardware. Not long after posting the issue, one user was able to return the device. Others with the same issue claimed that restoring the iPhone 3G to default factory settings would change it to normal.

More comparison shots of the odd tinted screen versus a normal one are available here.
