I have two black iphone 5 models here.

Week 36 / Week 39


Week 36 looked a lot bluer and cooler , I was pretty annoyed as it's the scuffed one.

Week 39 had a yellowish tint over the whole screen. I decided to try playing a game on the iphone until the phone got hot. It worked.



The Week 36 model is now the one that looks yellow compared to the week 39.

Don't know if this is "Glue Gate" or if it's different calibration (which I suspect) but playing around with the phone for a while cooled the yellow tint

I think a lot of this is people's mind, reading through this thread made me paranoid that mine was till I shrugged it off.

I had one of the first iphone 4's on Verizon and used it without a single flaw or glitch for 2 years until I got my 5, came here to research metal bumpers that don't degrade signal now I feel like I'm in the paranoia zone

I prefer the most neutral tint which is white. From all Apple devices I've own only iPod touch 3rd gen had the most neutral and accurate white. The rest was either yellow, blue or even pink tinted.
Wow, Of course you prefer the more natural white colour, hence the problem with yellow screens!

Sick and tired of people saying its normal, it doesn't matter the colour be it blue green, yellow or red - if it ain't white it's a flawed display.

Honestly guys I was one of those people that was obsessed with the yellow screen when I got my iPhone 5. I recently went into the Apple store I made a big discovery... The warmer screen actually made the colors stand out more than the bluer cooler screens! I compared them by Googling "calibration" and comparing pictures side by side and I came to the conclusion that the slightly warmer screen made the colors more lifelike and also made the colors pop.

So overall I'm pleased with my iPhone 5 and I wouldn't exchange it for a cooler hue one. Again, I don't have this "yellow" screen but I do have a warmer hue than the iPhone 5's in the Apple stores.

I agree with you that " The warmer screen actually made the colors stand out more than the bluer cooler screens! I compared them by Googling "calibration"

But when you open Safari or email, the background screen look very brownie and look depressed, also the black font is not stand out, it kinda blend into the color yellow of back ground, after 15 mins reading, you eye will feel tired

Good thing for me though is that my screen really isn't "yellow" - its in between cool and warm so it's perfect. Whites are perfect honestly, comparing it to the cool hue iPhone 5's there was a small difference but nothing dramatic like a totally "yellow" screen.
