Yellow hue on your Nexus 5X screen? No worries, Google will replace your phone

Yellow hue on your Nexus 5X screen? No worries, Google will replace your phone
Issues with a new smartphone arriving with a yellow tint to the screen, date all the way back to the Apple iPhone 4. At the time, it was thought that some adhesive hadn't had time to dry, and for most, the yellow tint or dots slowly disappeared. Last year, the OnePlus One also ran into a similar problem. Yellow tinted displays were also an issue with the LG manufactured Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. Now, some Nexus 5X users are having a problem with a yellow hue on their screens, providing LG with a deja vu moment.

If you are one of the Nexus 5X owners that has a yellow hued screen, you should contact Google customer service immediately. Some of those affected by this problem have been sent a replacement handset. On the other hand, you might want to wait to see if the yellow goes away as it has in other situations. In those cases, it took about a week for the yellow to disappear.
