    I just updated my Nexus S manually to Android 2.3.3 and the screen is really yellowish. It is kind of annoying but I have a feeling that it was because I updated my Nexus S manually. Are any of you having this screen color changing stuff?

    Yeah. I thought it was just me imagining things. The screen looks washed out until I crank the brightness. Could just be that they dropped the default brightness levels when using the sensor. However, I liked how they were after having the Nexus One always be so dark when on auto-brightness.

    I think they are doing this because they want to preserve battery life.

    I manually updated last night and the colour difference was the first thing I noticed. It looks terrible IMHO.

    Another thing I've noticed is that the 3D app drawer used to be clear on the top and bottom 3D parts (as if it had Anisotropic filtering applied) but now it's blurry like my old Nexus One's app drawer looked.

    Anyone else notice this?

    I'm reading/hearing about a slew of [new] glitches and issues... like widgets not working properly, or Google Voice not loading properly, the aforementioned color-change...

    What is up with this, Google?

    Has anyone gotten this update OTA and seen this issue? Seems like everyone reporting the problem has done the update manually.....

    I can confirm that the screen brightness/contrast/tint seem to have been altered in GRI40. Like the other posters, one of the first things I noticed.

    The latter two seem to be the real problem, in my eyes. The color tint shifted towards yellow, making colors look funny. The contrast seems to have been decreased, washing the screen out, which seems to spread the yellow tint everywhere and make it much more noticeable.

    My screen was beautiful and contrasty before, now it's washed out and yellow.

    Interesting that the "Google" logo that shows up when the thing boots still looks great.

    Not until the OS comes up does the screen look bad.

    It looks okay again if you turn up the brightness. So, you may not notice if you were already manually handling your brightness. I was always using auto, though, so I noticed.

    Here are 3 snaps of my Nexus S with it's godly Super AMOLED screen taken alongside my ZTE Blade with normal OLED screen:

    These shots were teken on my Galaxy Tab's lowly camera so it's no way near as good as looking with your eyes but you can see that the Nexus S looks extremely washed out now:


    Looking at the posts on XDA, some people are happy with the changes but I'm not a fan. I'll do some comparisons with the wife's Galaxy S when she gets home later.

    That was the first thing I noticed was the screen seemed lighter somehow. Hope they fix this one soon.

    WTF - Google changed the screen temperatures intentionally???? I don't know what they are thinking, my screen looked perfect before. I didn't see the reddish grays mentioned in the A.C. story. I appreciate Google trying to update its dev phones quickly and consistently, but if it aint broke don't fix it.

    Only this isn't a bug. Not sure a bug report is going to be heeded.

    Yes you can go back to 2.3.2 by deleting 2.3.3 on the internal SD and then putting 2.3.2 back in. visit the FAQ and it will have a link to 2.3.2. It is under OTA updates.

    The link here in the AC Nexus S FAQ didn't work. Kept pulling an error up. Didn't write it down.

    On top of this is anyone getting horrible photo images on top of the color being yellow? My background now looks like the color palette was cut in half. There's zero blending and looks horrible now. I have to use a solid black background unless I want any sort of fancy color blending to look like a BlackBerry 83xx series phone.

    Here is a link to the issue on Google Code. Give it a star:

    code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=15039

    This is the best way to get Google's attention.

    The yellowish screen was the first thing I noticed after upgrading also. It looks like a CCFL backlit screen now with high contrast blacks. Before the upgrade, it looked like there was a bluish tint which looked kinda crappy to me. I think I prefer the yellow over the blue. To me, whites look more white now without the blueish tint.
