It's only an issue if it bothers you. I had a Moto X Style that had a very yellow screen. I now have a Moto X Play that is generally fine, although it has a very slight yellow tint in the upper right corner. I think the LCD screens are more prone to this problem than the AMOLED screens.


It's the same on all smartphones I've ever seen. Even higher-end, more 'flagship' models. Some have a colour tint, some don't. Some say it's related to the adhesives used when fixing the screens in place. Whatever it is, there's certainly something in the manufacturing process that means it's a lottery as to whether or not you'll get a perfectly white screen.


You could try exchanging it if it bothers you, but I would say there's no guarantee that the new one will be any better.
