    I've noticed several times that my screen has a blue tint to it whilst the screen is off. Just wondered if anyone else has witnessed this on their s3 and if you know why?

    By the way this isn't an issue I'm just a little curious

    Do you have the Pebble Blue GS3? Just wondering if that might have anything to do with casting a blue tint thru the Gorilla Glass display. Mine is Peb Blue, but I haven't noticed any blue tint in the display. So you're only noticing it when the 'screen is off', and the display screen is dark (black)?

    Btw . . I remember reading, recently on some thread here, about a GS3 user who had contacted the Samsung (International CS, I think), to ask them specifically about why his first GS3 had, what appeared to him, a blue tint to the display, and why his second (warranty replacement) GS3 did not.
    I think he said that he was told it's just a location specific Samsung manufacturing glitch, effected by a slight difference in display (Gorilla Glass 2?) materials resulting in some GS3 displays having what appears to be a blue tint, like you're seeing on your display screen.
    Not sure if that's the case, or if it's been verified elsewhere, but it's what one member here reportedly was told by, (again, I think it was) Samsung CS. Anyone else read that post?

    Yeah mines in pebble blue and it's just when the screen is off, like when you lock the phone. I only notice it every now and again when it's on a table or a desk, for example.

    It's got something to do with being an amoled screen, even my skyrocket looks like that.

    Haha you'll probably only see it when your not searching for it. And it isn't a problem or anything

    Yeah the light has to hit it just right to see it, but I'm pretty sure they all have it.

    Yep, mine is pebble blue and has it too. Not sure if it has anything to do it with it, but I usually notice is only when I'm wearing socks.
