Hello. I noticed this problem last week when turning the phone on. There was a black line on screen that was visible on the S3 logo and boot animation. Today I noticed It's getting bigger and several black ' balls ' or dots appeared but again they are only visible on boot or the TWRP recovery stand-by mode. I don't know what this is, I never had this problem before with any phone. Please help me. Also I have the international version, the GT- I9300. And the lines and dots aren't visible normally, the phone works just fine You can't even see those 'things' normally when the phone is on.

It is on stock rom, it's rooted and it has TWRP recovery and I can't return it because it was purchased online and it can only be returned within the first 3 days. I might think those lines are dead or stuck pixels

try flashing another rom and another recovery, like phil'z recovery. if the problem persists, it's probably the screen.

It looks like the known issue of AMOLED screens on dark screen+ low brightness.
