Sony Acknowledges Xperia S ‘Yellow Screen’ Issue

According to a CNET UK report, Sony's Xperia S phone has a serious issue with heat that can turn the handset's screen yellow if it gets too hot. In a statement issued to CNET UK, Sony confirmed that it knows about the issue, but also said that the problem only affects a small number of Xperia S handsets.

"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 also confirmed that it has changed the manufacturing process for the phone to avoid having this issue occur on any more handsets. Those consumers who have had this issue can take solace in the fact that Sony Mobile will "resolve this at no cost to the consumer."

In case you didn't know, the Xperia S is an Android-based phone that can also play some PlayStation games.

    Sony, a major player in the video game market, made a product that plays its video games but overlooked a problem that inconveniences its customers and has promised to fix it.

    GamePolitics has always covered such news.  Xbox 360's RROD issues would be one of the earliest examples of such from the site's history.

    *sigh* I know I harp on this a bit too often, but why is this here?   Game Politics is not a general purpose industry rag, it is intended to discuss where politics and games overlap.  There are already many many many general industry sites… trying to be more like them dilutes GP and makes it less worth coming to because, to be blunt, it does not serve the general role nearly as well as the general sites, but clutters up its content so it serves its particular niche worse…
