I've just noticed a large dark splotch on the upper right corner hand of my phone.

Here are some pictures:

These were taken with my Nexus 7 2013 so excuse the poor quality. I removed my screen protector prior to taking these shots.
All the color screens are from Dead Pixel Test. I've also included a snap of gmail and circa just to illustrate the blotch in apps with light backgrounds.

I try to be as careful as I can with my phone. I've never dropped my phone on the ground or in water.

I found this article while I was searching - it looks similar.

Seems like a force to the screen? Do you carry your phone in your back pocket?

No, I always carry it in my front pocket and give it the entire pocket.

Hmm whatever this blotch is, it's now shrunk to this small 1mm circle.
