Seems like everyone around me has that problem, and there are several threads going on here.
If your iPhone 5 has no yellow tint issue, do you mind posting a pic on here, just want to compare it against mine, thanks

A pic won't help; cameras will generally adjust color balance so you won't be able to tell how yellow or blue your screen is.

That said, the iPhone 5 has a slightly lower color temperature than the 4. I noticed this and found it pleasing. I wouldn't worry about it; you'll get used to it soon enough.

I noticed a slight one, compared to my 4S, then went to the Apple store and compared it to 3 display models....I discovered that mine is much brighter and whiter than theirs. One employee actually thought the display phones had a lower brightness setting, until I showed him that I had set them and mine as high as it would go. So, I have the better screen!!!

No issues here, either. My 4S has a bluer screen, but the screen on my iPhone 5 is pure white - no blue or yellow that I can detect.

An ever so slightly warmer tone is not yellow. Not bluish is not yellow. Yellow is yellow. Lemon Jello is yellow. Tweety is yellow. This smiley is yellow. :)

My whites are white unlike my 3GS which has a slight blue tint. No yellow.

Someone posted a fix for this. I don't know if it's purely psychological but it definitely worked for me:

Put your brightness to 50% and toggle on auto brightness while in a normally lit room. Then go to a light or lamp and face the front of the screen directly to the light source and wait for the brightness level to automatically move up to 100%. Then return to the normally lit room and wait for it to go back down to 50%. Check results.

:cool:

No yellow tint here. It's actually a better white balance than my old 4. It was too blue. My 5 is pretty much perfect. Not blue, not yellow. White is actually white.

That's was I noted in my post above. Pure white. I like it.
