Yes, yellow screen issue is there, and its there with all SGS2, weather people accept it or not.. And its more prominent at low brightness levels. But yeah, its not a dealbreaker.
! Can you please take a photo in macro mode regarding that. Use this site if you already don't know at Auto Brightness to confirm the Yellowish tiny, - jsFiddle demo
On mine I really can't see it, may be it's there may be not.
@ithehappy : Why didn't you go for flipkart?
You would have got HDTV adapter and car phone charger for free :p
Then I'd have to wait another 3-4 days. I'll buy a HDMI adapter later anyway.

^ y lgo2x??? Sensation's available at same price as SGS II. If for some reason the negligible yellow tinge bothers you, get Sensation. :)

Happy to report that I'm in the same situation, can't determine whether the tint is there (it looks like it's there, but not 100% sure). In any case, it's so mild and subtle that I haven't lost even a second's sleep over it. My big issue right now is only about battery - which seems to drain like a leaky tap. And no, i don't want suggestions to turn off radios and keep the phone in idle mode forever, I bought it to play with it, not as an expensive paper weight.

I guess you are running on KE8 and that's the best firmware till now to save battery. And no, putting it in idle all time isn't a good justice for it :), but do make sure that, GPS is Off when not in use, Auto Sync is OFF, these two things do drain battery quickly and some others also.
To betterment of battery back up yesterday I purchased Set CPU app from market, but till now it's draining more battery than stock! Oops, may be I am not yet used with the app yet :)

guys finally should I buy the galaxy s II or the sensation? The galaxy s II is better in all other aspects but the sensation is somewhat better in looks and the HTC sense really looks good. Finally which is the better buy?

The Sensation isn't a true competitor of GS II. But if you like its design then who is stopping you? But if I were given the choice then undoubtedly I'd go for the I9100 :)

**UPDATE**

Firmware XWKF1 is released. It is still 2.3.3. You can download it from samfirmware.com. It's not available in Kies yet.

Guys I booked my Galaxy S II at univercell(Vizag) by paying an advance of 1000. The final price i am getting it for is 31000(with Insurance(3%)). He said he would give me the handset in next 3-4 days.

I got mine on the 27th of May. Till date have tried almost all the custom roms and the stock roms (except XWKF1).
Felt that Ke8 is the best rom till now.
Thinking bout flashing to XWKF1.
