One of the features of the OnePlus 3 is its display, which according to the company has an Optic OLED display, which is basically an OLED display that has been customized to OnePlus’ specifications, and it is also a feature that the company’s co-founder has vigorously defended against its detractors.

We suppose at the end of the day it really comes down to your personal preference in what you like from a smartphone display, but it seems that’s not all. According to several users, it seems that their OnePlus 3 handset has been plagued with a weird yellow smudge, which you can see for yourself in the videos above and below.

Now in the past we have seen similar cases happen to other phones, which sometimes can be attributed to the glue/bonding agent not having enough time to set, but is expected to go away eventually. It is unclear if this is the case here, but in the second video below, towards the end you’ll notice that when Night Mode has been disabled, the screen appears to go back to normal.

So could this be a software issue that OnePlus will be addressing in its promised update? Or could this be a hardware problem? We guess we’ll have to wait for the company to respond, but in the meantime any of our readers with OnePlus 3 handsets are affected similarly?
