    Has anyone noticed on the New ipad screen blue hue around the edges especially when there is a white background? If i look closely you can see a light blue color especially on the top and the bottom of the screen against a white background ? is this normal?

    Hehe good one AQ_OC :p but mine does really exhibit that. It usually shows when there isn't enough light in the room. It is mostly seen on the sides when used in landscape mode and the background is completely white e.g. in safari!!!

    Are you sure it is not just light reflecting off the screen in a strange way? How about a camera shot?

    It is very difficult to capture using a camera!! I dont think it is light reflecting o the screen because it is visible in darkness as well!! One italian guy in the apple forums told me he has a similar problem so i dont think am the only one!!

    It's obviously a rare problem,since no one on this thread,other than yourself has ever experienced it.If it's that hard to photograph,the blue colour has to be very faint.

    Where humans are concerned you are never the only one. So I guess you have several friends/relatives to see the blue hue as well, right?

    Guys i visited the apple store and i compared my ipad with the ones there. Half of them had similar blue hues and others did not!! Comparing the maximum brightness levels between the two you could obviously see a difference between them which shows that there are at least two kinds of screens used in the new ipads!! I swapped mine hoping to get the other screen type and eventually i did! I dont know if that batch is only in the UK but it does exist and it does have a slight blue hue around the edges!!!

    Turn of the lights and put a completely white image at full screen. Then hold the ipad in landscape mode and look a the left and right edges there should be around 2mm of slight blue hue.

    Where in the world are you? I have read that LG is making ipad screen now, and maybe even one other company.

    Sorry you are having this issue. Are you able to exchange it for a replacement?
