Default Is anyone's 311k model screen losing yellow tint?

Just received my replacement nexus 5, 311k with larger speaker holes and like everyone else my screen is super yellow and looks terrible. Has anyone screen cooled down and lost the yellow tint over time or is that just a myth? Also does faux's gamma control app fix that?

Now that you mention it, when I first got my N5 it did seem a little yellowish. After a few weeks either my eyes have adjusted or its gotten better

The screen will get better after a bit. Its a case of your eyes adjusting to it and whatever glue that needs to dry (which is beyond me). Mine is a 311k as well and the yellow tint has definitely decreased. I also have faux's kernel and its kernel app has a gamma patch that helps with increasing certain colors over others.

You will get use to it. My second N5 was much more yellow then the first one I had. Barley notice a thing now that I have gotten use to it.

Just to throw it out there for anyone I received my initial N5 311k model and it had problem with the power button so I RMA'd it and got a replacement with the new hardware (bigger speaker holes) and like some people seem to notice the screen on the new device was extremely yellow and warm. I let it sit for a while overnight and turned the screen on every once in a while to the white background of Google now and overnight and the more I used it the screen lost its yellow tint and cooled down, so it seemed to have gone away by itsself...just posting for anyone else who might have the same issue

FYI..

nexus 5 have two version display , That's normal.

and if you have tune color , flash custom kernel Franko r23 and install app N5 Gamma Testand , then tune colors like you want

Why does everybody blame the glue. Issues with glueing are commonly seen as small yellow circles in the corners of the screen.
A completely yellow tinted screen for an extended period of time will almost certainly be a calibration issue.
No screen is identical and lg will not individually calibrate every single device.
Either RMA it or look into fauxs calibration app

Why does everyone call 311k a model? Its not. Its hardware rev_11 like all other nexus 5's!
