K so on purpose Apple made the screen yellower, they use the word "warmer".

Whats the overall opinion on this? I like the old screen a lot better, but I'll get used to this eventually.

IMHO, I like the warmer screen much better. At first I was worried about it, but as time has gone on, it just looks better, the colors more true and easier on my eyes. When I look at my wife's fisrt gen, it just too blue to me.

I honestly don't really notice unless I hold a 3G next to my V1. The screen is "warmer" - the V1 has more of a blue tint. I think just about everybody either doesn't notice it or gets used to it.

To me, my screen looks exactly the same as a v1. I never had a yellowish tint from Day 1.

I heard some cases really exaggerate the yellow tint because it blocks a light sensor.

well I noticed it right away...I always prefer bluish "colder" tints over yellow/red "warmer" tints...it's how I have my tv and computer monitor so I'm used to it...

mine had a pretty big difference from my old one. i like the " colder " screen better than this new yellowish tint.... i know im picky but i went to the Apple store told them the problem and after 10 minutes of talking he handed me a brand new iPhone 3g, thisone is much better and closer to the " cold " screen.

That's exactly what I think about it.
Thanks for answering for me :laugh2:

Don't give it much thought, really. Been so long since I've seen a 1.0 iPhone that I don't care.

I much prefer the v1 screen color. I still get annoyed at the color on the 3G. But whatever, there's nothing I can do about it.

I'm sure you get used to it and don't notice it... but side-by-side, I think I would always prefer the colder tone of the V1 screen. Who knows from day-to-day use, though. I don't watch movies on the phone.

The yellow tint's OK. As a dog owner, not much different from yellow snow.:p

I have made several exchanges now at the Apple Store and have noticed 3 different screens on the iPhone 3G ... The yellowish screen and a bluish screen similar to my 1st Gen that I had. The third screen seemed bluish however the alignment of the screen was a tad wacky, seemed to have an extra row of inactive pixels running down the left side, and kind of gave it the perception of being not centered. I do prefer the Blueish screen over the Yellow one.
