Sony’s Xperia S was launched at CES earlier this year and saw its release not too long ago, but it seems that being an early adopter certainly has its shortcomings. There have been reports of yellowish patches appearing on the Xperia S’ display, an issue that has plagued many devices in the past, such as the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S2. Sony has since come forward and admitted that there were some manufacturing issues that could have led to this.
According to the company, the Xperia S is transient and temperature-dependent, therefore the yellowish patches only shows up when the device gets sufficiently warm. Sony claims that this issue should have only affected a small number of handsets and that they have since modified its production process to avoid the same issue from cropping up in future Xperia S handsets.
It would have been great if Sony had caught this before the handsets rolled out, after all, the Xperia S is the first Android smartphone the company has launched since it dropped the Ericsson moniker and we’re sure that they would have loved to make a great first impression. In any case if you’re an Xperia S owner experiencing the problem mentioned above, you should probably contact Sony to see what can be done about it.
