Angry iPhone 5 Yellow Screen?

Just bought a new iPhone 5 and it has a strong yellow tint. White website backgrounds are p*ss yellow. Are all iphone 5s like this?

I've had 6 iphones all with varying color temps. My latest one is crisp and white.

Yellow is not, and never will be, OK.

OP, get it replaced. When you go to the Apple Store, first check other iPhone 5's and compare so you can reproduce the problems to a genius.

Before with the iphone 4S I read that some parts of the screen were yellow and that with the use that color will disappear because it is the glue or something like that.

Could it be the same issue? Could the issue disappear with time? Could the glue be so fresh?

I had a realm yellow screen and it got bluer and whiter over time. One night my girlfriend slept on it and in the morning it was very blue. I have heard it may be because some glue or solvent needs to dry, and the heat helps it to.

maybe your eyes see white as yellow

The iphone 5 you see in the store have a yellow or a white screen?
