Do the newer/current batches of 5's have a higher percentage of non-yellow screens?

Anyone who's bought a 5 or exchanged pretty recently, can you answer this question ??

I've been looking to exchange but wanted to wait until the first few waves of 5's were sold.

I had a yellow screen. Noticeable. After two weeks of use it disappeared. The glue it used sets and becomes all clear

Picked up a 5 today and my screen is very blue. No yellow whatsoever. Absolutely perfect.

I recently exchanged and got a much clearer screen then my original 5. I think the good screens are back.

To the glue guy: nope. You got used to it. Sorry, its not glue, never has been never will be.

No.

Glue has never ever caused any screen to be yellow. It only used to cause small yellow blotches with the iPhone 4.

This is caused by glue:
