    It's mostly noticeable when taking or viewing pictures on my 5S, much less noticeable in other areas such as the web & messaging. Is it a known issue on this model of iPhone as I did a search on here & I couldn't see anything for it?

    It sounds like a hardware issue. Typical in the LCD world if your monitor has a tint of any color you go and change the screen color temperature. Typical yellow is warm and your need to set it to neutral. However, you cannot do this on an iphone.

    More than likely since the color is based on Red, Green, and Blue something is wrong with the Red and/or Green trace/cable that connects the iphone screen to the GPU (graphics processor unit).

    In other words the cable connects to the display to the rest of the phone might be bad or loose.

    Thank you for that. I suppose even a case would not save it from something like that if it has been dropped.
