You'll have to take a photo of the screen. A screenshot won't show a yellow tint as it's a display issue, not a software one.

I don't know about yellow, but your screen seems darker at the bottom 1/4. Could just be the photo, though.

Common problem. It's usually at the top 1/4 though, not the bottom.

For such an indistinguishable "fault"? Forget it and use your phone!

It's real simple. Does it bother you?

If yes, return it. Else, keep it.

Dilemma solved.

I think the majority of iPhone screens have a warm/cool (yellow/blue) tint, so you might get one that's worse. A lot of people don't mind the blue tint but do mind the yellow.

Personally I'm not fussy, but you can take it back no questions asked so if it bothers you, go get it swapped.
