I recently bought a Nexus 5 32 GB Black from Google Play Store India. I find an issue with the display. I can see horizontal lines on the display on looking closer to the screen. Anyone else facing similar issue? Just wanted to be sure that the issue is with my device only before requesting for RMA. It really can't be captured on a camera, but if anyone has seen it already, they should be able to know what I am talking about.

Thats just the LCD panel behind the glass. My HTC One had that, as well as my nexus 4.

So, are we supposed to live with that?

I just verified my friend's Nexus 4 and did not notice this issue.

well its not a problem when the screen is on.. The only time you can notice it is if your looking at it in a certain angle in a certain light lol.

I see it all the time. It is clearly visible on white and light backgrounds.

I've got them too. You can see them very prominently in the orange part of the wallpaper. Sorry about the orientation/Quality. Taken with my Nexus 7. x)

Thank you for making this topic! I have the same issue and I was wondering if it's just me. I can see the horizontal lines without even looking at the screen up close. I haven't had a chance to compare it with anything else though... I'm sending in my device for RMA due to the power button, I can report back in about 10 days if the new device has the same issue (if you want).

Using the same wallpaper, I don't see these lines on my device. I would definitely send it back for a replacement.

Yeah I don't think that's normal. I don't have those lines either.

I notice this as well. I never saw this with my previous phone (iphone 4s). Is this a defect?
