    Hello everybody !

    I actually have an iPhone 4 that still work good, and I heard and read a lot good things about the Oneplus One.
    So I pre-ordered with success the OPO last monday, and i'm very excited and can't wait to receive it.

    But i also read about some issues, precisely about the screen that turn yellow.
    So I doubt a little.
    I read a lot of threads but i can't know if this is a software or hardware problem.
    And now i don't know if i have to maintain my pre-order or not.

    Maybe Oneplus resolved the problem, but who know ?
    I'm still thinking...

    ;) Don't worry. You will be happy with your OnePlus One like hundreds of thousands others.

    I heard the yellow banding is just glue that hadnt dried yet. just put it in sunlight for awhile but dont let it get too hot bc it could mess up the battery

    I bought a OnePlus One used (like new) yesterday. It has the yellow band. I swear it would have taken me a long time to even notice it if I was wasn't looking for it.

    This phone is awesome and now my wife wants one. I saved money by purchasing used (it's blemish free) and got it right away :). I've been using it for two days now and not an issue so far.

    Hands down this seems like the best phone for the money. I also pre-ordered one! Can't wait! If my wife likes my One plus I'll be getting another one. We both have a first gen Moto X which we love, but I couldn't pass a deal on the Oneplus. Not so sure my wife will love the size of the device coming from the x. For me it won't be a problem. I want my wife to hold the phone before the 17th of November in case I might want to pre-ordered another one. My One should be shipping in 3-4 weeks, so wishful thinking. I'm not worried about the yellow screen, from the videos I've seen I can't even see anything. How's the speakers? I love the speaker on my Moto X. It's very loud.

    ;) If you do not see any yellow tint, not even an ebony shade - how I call mine - there are lots of tutorials that teach you exactly, how to proceed.

    There are two yellow issues with the phone, the yellow tint and the yellow band at the bottom. The yellow tint of the screen has seemed to go away with newer versions of the firmware. The yellow band is a "feature," according to OPO, although most of us call it a flaw. It is caused by the backlights being put close to the bezel.

    If you get one with the yellow band, no matter what anyone says, it is not fixable. You can either RMA or sell it to someone else.

    I have the yellow band but it diminishes as you turn up the brightness of the screen.

    my phone has the yellow band. it has never gone away, just slightly less or more depending on which firmware im using.
    it doesnt bother me as its only visible in a white background
