It's not exactly what Sony needs, is it?
Having launched its own solo handset - the Xperia S - and made what appeared to be a success of it, the maker has now been hit with its own version of 'antennagate': 'screengate'.
Some owners who'd forked out for the top of the range handset reported their screens going a bit yellow if they got too hot - and now Sony has confirmed to CNET that that is, indeed, the case:
"Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smartphones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius."
Obviously wanting to draw a line under the issue - which Sony says only affects a handful of users - it has promised to replace affected phones.
So that clears that up!
