Yellow spots on screen?

So it looks like there are yellow splotches on my iPhone 5 screen. Notice on the top and bottom left. Should I take it to the genious bar or deal with it?

That looks pretty bad. Looks like you got yours from the yellow stock batch. I would take it back but make sure you double check the replacement.

I had pretty bad yellow spots on my first one. I exchanged it and my new one is perfect. If you're still within your return period, do that vs exchanging at the Genius Bar.. You'll get a new phone vs a refurb / white box replacement. Either way, the spots are not normal and you shouldn't get any hassle swapping it.

How do you exchange it other than the genious bar? Can I go to Verizon if I bought it at an apple store?

If you bought it at an Apple Store you have to go through the Genius Bar for a replacement.
