    The glue under the glass is not 100% dry let it dry for a wile and it should show really good whites
    How long will it need to dry? I just got my Nexus 4 yesterday, but the screen tint is VERY yellow. The display actually looks like garbage compared to my GNex. I hope it's just the glue, but how long should I wait before I worry, or send it back?

    It looks yellow all over to me, but certain areas seem worse (the bottom half or so of the phone when held in portrait).

    My screen looks yellowish but only if I watch from a steep angle fr the bottom.

    On a normal viewing angle it looks fine.

    I personally prefer the cooler "blueish" color of the iPhone 5 over the yellow tint any day.
    Me too... but I'd take a NEXUS 4 over an iPhone 5 any day, too.

    Coming from a Galaxy Nexus: No doubt, the Nexus 4 screen is much better than the Galaxy Nexus screen, regardless of any supposed warmness.

    I had 2 Nexus 4's. One that I got from T-Mobile and the one I got from Google on Thursday. I was going to keep the one from Google and get rid of the used T mobile one (hahaha yes I know it was still brand new with no scratches or anything) but when I put the side by side the Google play was displaying yellowish whites why my other one has never displayed yellowish whites. I think it just luck of the draw, probably something that can be fix with software.

    I've never seen this yellow tint people have spoken about, and my screen doesn't show any symptoms, but I'd like to know if people have had this problem right out the box or if it came from gradual use.

    Not sure if any has answered this yet but the saturation of the nexus has been lowered a lot and shows the actual true color (I think) than the saturated screen of the iphone or nexus.

    My GN looks super yellow next to the N4, certainly not the other way around.

    I just received my N4 ordered from Google and it is awfully yellow compared even to my old iPhone 3GS. I am completely disappointed. If it doesn't go away in a few days ( as some mentioned it might be the glue ) I am returning it or selling it. Cannot stand the yellow tint. I like warm colors but this is ridiculously yellow. The black is not even black and the default android theme looks crappy and ugly for that reason

    There are apps to get rid of the warm colors.

    Defective screen, something odd with the camera maybe? Like most of you, I've watched a plethora of videos and only pocketnow seems to have an N4 that looks like that on camera.

    My GNex screen looks like crap next to the N4 screen. It's is very yellow compared to the N4.

    60% of the time it works every time!

    I've never seen a Nexus 4 but I just wanted to add that it might be an issue with the displays.

    I requested a replacement for my Galaxy Nexus and it arrived yesterday. My old phone had "banding" but more whenever the screen displayed the color red. The replacement I received is great as far as there is no banding and the color is consistent now. But this replacement is definitely tinted yellow and dimmer than my original phone. I've seen lots of reports of some Galaxy Nexus screens being tinted yellow so I'm wondering if this is the case with the Nexus 4. I'm debating on whether I should send the replacement back because I can sort of "fix" it with the extra settings in CM.

    The screen on the Nexus 4 is great in my opinion and really beats the GNex. Colors are just warmer.
