I am using Samsung Galaxy A5 A500G since last month, but sometimes while using the phone, the display turns slightly green or purple (tinted) in shade. But as soon as I adjust the screen brightness, the display becomes normal.
Is it a problem?

Is it a problem ?
Not if it vanishes by increasing brightness a bit or moving out of shade. It is a problem if you see this with normal day time brightness
Why does it happen?
Samsung AMOLED displays are based on PenTile technology and manufactured by Nouvoyance ( Nouvouyance partners with Samsung and also supplies Pentile displays to other OEMs as well). Instead of the conventional (called Real Stripe) OLED displays pixel pattern of
RGB , PenTile uses
RGBW, which cuts power consumption to half for the same brightness and hence longer screen life as well
Any /combination of these two factors makes the color combination look tinted and variously described as purple, brown or pink. This should be the main reason for your observation (other being a problem with screen or screen digitizer, if it is very pronounced).
