1. Is it original samsung? No a clone one?
2. If it is, is it brand new or secondhand?
3. If its new, surely you can bring it to the nearest samsung service center and ask for a replacement.
4. Don't be lazy, try to find any good spot that you can, peel off the screen coating or whatever that yellow thingy.

What is that yellow stuff? From my POV, most likely this looks like ...... Samscrewed.

I think that the digitizer didn't glued correctly with the screen ! Weird if this comes directly from samsung. Any new S5 comes with a protective screen (sometimes badly applied) but this is definitely a bad glued digitizer.

Take it to Samsung India. They might sort it out for you. Just try.

Hmm if it really isn't a badly applied screen cover then just take it back. If i had got my phone out of box and it looked like that i'd have taken straight back to the shop before even posting it on here.

Strange behavior....
