Default Pink around edge of screen?

Like the title says, my screen has a very, very faint pink part around the edge of the screen, probably about a 1/4 in wide. Its only visible in bright sunlight with full brightness on and with the screen at max brightness with a white background. Should I be worried about this and start saving up for a new display or should I just let it go? Any thoughts guys?

Hard to say. Could be some slight burn in from an app that you may have used in the past that was heavily used (on for long periods) and had some sort of its own boarder. If its burn in, the display is probably still good for a while.
If thats not it, it could be signs of an eminent failure. But it sounds more like burn in to me.

I think I agree with with burn in, if it was water damage, it would have gotten worse eventually. Right?

It's a factory defect. I returned a white one to T-Mobile within the 14 day period.

Basically, the same symptoms. On a white page like Google you could see a pink blob in the bottom right corner.

At the time I thought it's because the display is screwed in too tight. Or next to something magnetic.

Does it look uniform all the way around? Kind of like a proper boarder, same width, straight lines, etc? If so then id be almost certain its burn in.
