    I dunno if this is normal, but do you guy notice if you turn the brightness all the way up, and look at the home screen (the plain black one, not jailbroken), if you look along the edges, it looks like there is a faint yellowish coloring to it?

    All that is is the color of the backlight that your seeing.

    Yeah, but is it normal? I believe the backlight should be white... Reason why I bring it up is because I've noticed that the previous 16GB I owned I didn't think I noticed the yellowishness, which is why I am wondering if it is a defect or not.

    nah its competely normal. The light is yellowish. Also I have owned an ipod touch and an iphone and both do exactly what you are describing, and it only happens when looking at black. But maybe yours could be worse?

    What I describe only happens when looking at black. I'm not sure if it is worse or not, but I'm guessing that its not a big deal since I barely notice it, though it is noticable when I pay close attention.

    Not true, the touch should be using LEDs to light the interface, there should be no yellow colour band at all.

    Jeffy, do you notice any yellowish glow when on black with your iPod?

    If anybody else notices or does not notice this, please post. I'd like to see if truly it is normal or not.

    I've noticed this two, but more frequently on low brightness settings on white screens.

    I have it too. I agree with Danls92, it's more noticeable on a dimmer brightness setting.
