Yellow tint to screen
I know this has been discussed, just need an opinion. My screen does have a yellow tint to it, although not bad at all. In fact my wife did not notice until I showed her. I put it next to my iphone4 and you can see the difference, but the yellow is definitely not a deep yellow. Just a light tint. However I think the yellow tints makes text easier to read and my colors are far richer.
Would you replace it and look for a white screen or is the yellow the new norm? I have read over and over that the yellow is supposed to be there to produce warm colors.
Experts....I need some advice.

I saw that. But I also read that it is not true and will not go away. I have definitely done my research. I saw some pics of some really bad yellow screens. Mine is just a slight yellow tint. I am the type of person that wants perfection. I am just worried if I swap it out, then May get a worse one am have to deal with swapping it out again.

"However I think the yellow tints makes text easier to read and my colors are far richer."
If you think the yellow tint is a plus, even if it IS a permanent "defect", why would you want to swap it out? Just because you strive to achieve the socially-accepted standard of "perfection"? Even if it means an inferior screen to you, the user?
I'm not hating, I'm just curious.

I want to wait it out, but I am reading way too much about this issue and it not resolving itself to become clear. Just set up an appointment for apple tomorrow.
I also went to Verizon and AT&T to just compare and all theirs had white screens.

It's because the ones at the store are demos that have had MUCH more usage than yours...but if you're paranoid about it, trade it in until your heart's content. If you want to go back throughout our forums to the years past (iPhone 4, iPhone 4S), you can see this same exact stuff being freaked out over by people, and then the same people realizing it was nothing to stress about...
