    Good morning guys, i need a little help to figure out about this one thing i concern since yesterday. So i just bought new lumia 1520 off contract for about $300 (in today's currency which i think is a good bargain). But i notice that the bottom area of the screen in off-white. I mean the white color is yellowish but only happen to the half bottom area of the screen near the navigation button.
    So, did i get a defect unit here? Or anyone else having the same problem? Or will it go away in some time?
    I will appreciate any kind of explanation from you guys.

    Regards :)

    Yep, what? I did get a defective unit, did you have the same problem, or the yellowish will go in some time.

    I have a 1520 but no yellowing. My son had one. No distortion in the color on it either. Post an image if you can.

    the difference is subtle and barely visible at the image as i do not have decent camera but it is there. The bottom area is yellowing compared to the half top.

    Do you have a screen protector on your phone?

    I came back to this thread on my Macbook and now I can see the image better. Yes, there is a noticeable yellow tint on your phone. If you could swap it, go ahead and do it.

    I went to nokia care today to repair my 730 and show them my yellowing screen. They said they can repair it and will need 1-2 weeks as they don't have 1520 screen in their stock. I guess I will wait till next week when they finish with my 730 and then I will get my 1520 repaired. Thanks for the suggestion mate.
