Hi just got my ATT galaxy s5 yesterday and I'm very disappointed with the screen. Yellow tint at the bottom and cool blue at the top is this normal with AMOLED displays?

Agreed. Sounds like a defect.

Defect. The S5 has probably the best screen on the market right now you can buy right now in terms of brightness and color accuracy.

yes I did. It look fine at full brightness but at low brightness is where the problem is. Warm in the middle and cool blue on the top and bottom

I sell them and haven't had a single one come out like that. Sounds like a bad batch that particular store
