The iPhone 5 appears doomed to suffer from glitches involving different colors.
The green glow supposedly appears for just a split second, but some users complained that the issue was getting worse with time. Users on the forum have noted that Apple will replace iPhone 5 units that show the problem, although some have been turned away because they couldn't consistently replicate the glow.
But it doesn't appear to be widespread, and CNET couldn't replicate the issue on one iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 does use new display technology that allows for a thinner design, and that could be a factor in display issues.
CNET has contacted Apple for more information, and we'll update the story when the company responds.
