You're right , when it's a glue problem usually there's just spots, not a solid yellow tone over the screen, so what can we do? try to exchange the phone, are there nexus 5 with colder screen or are they all so yellow?

I had a galaxy nexus with a terribly yellow screen, let me tell it NEVER got better , even after months of use

This video shows the difference between the N4 and N5. Wait until it gets to the browser speed comparison, you can see the screen is yellower on the N5 and the UI contrast is less. Note that the apparent difference on mine is much greater, so either this is variation or the video mutes the difference.

Fixed by Google or by a custom ROM?

Probably not. I don't think anything is wrong with the screens of our phones. They're just calibrated wrong by Google or LG.

Comparing my Nexus 5 by eye to my calibrated (sRGB, 6500k white point) monitor, the Nexus 5 has a very slight blue push. The Nexus 4, however, is INCREDIBLY blue. Like 9300k blue. If you're used to the Nexus 4, the Nexus 5 will look yellow, but it's the Nexus 4 that is out of whack in this case.

I'm starting to think that those who think that the screen on the N5 is yellow is just accustomed to a screen with a really cold white point (almost all phones are, including the HTC One). That being said, I do still think the N5 needs proper calibration, but it's not far off from 6300k.
