Do I have screen issues?
My first 'New iPad' seemed to have a yellow tinge, and after comparing it with my brothers iPad and taking it into the Apple store it was confirmed. They replaced it with a refurb as and that one had issues. I then had it replaced again, and I've taken some pics comparing it with my brothers iPad.
I need another pair of eyes to help me judge, as I've been staring at iPad screens the past couple of days, I can't tell which seems most accurate. What do you think of my screen? Is this one worthy of keeping? I kinda need a pretty decent display as I plan on using my iPad as a digital portfolio to show of my work for job interviews.
The first one of each picture is my bro's iPad. The second is mine.

Some comparison shots. My iPad is always on the right.

Are there any issues with mine? I'm inspecting the screen since my first two had an issue.
EDIT: hmmm, my links won't change to click-able ones.

With the exception of a mechanical issue, I suspect that your yellow tinge is merely a warm hue. When the iphone 4S was released, the threads were filled with complaints of the yellow tint color of the display and I was one of the ones who complained. Compared to the iphone 4, the warm tint was undeniable because the iphone 4, not all of them, had a cool hue/tint that made it look brighter. Now, however, I can barely notice a yellowish tint. Anyway, being that I'm not there to physically look at your device, I can only speculate on the problem.

Give it a couple of weeks to see if it is the glue/bonding that hasnt properly cured. If it remains after that time I would get it replaced.
My first iPad 3 had a noticible yellow cast of one corner of the screen, after around 10 days it had not improved, so I contacted Apple Care and got it replaced. That one was fine screen wise but got replaced 2-3 weeks later with a wifi issue. The one I then got has been fine, no issues at all thankfully.

If you have to look that close just to be able to see defects in your screen I highly doubt you have an issue. That said. It depends on who made the screen as to the color tint that you will find. There are some iPad's that do have a more yellow tint to them than others. If there is nothing else wrong with your screen one option to getting the tint that you like is to jailbreak your iPad and download an app called "color profiles" which allows you change the display color of your iPad. My iPhone had a warm tint to it which I didn't like but didn't feel like swapping it out since I wasn't having any other issues with it. So I downloaded colorprofiles and now my 4S has a bluish tint to it as that is how I like it.... You can always take you iPad back and get Apple to look at it if you don't feel like Jailbreaking. Good luck.
