Question [Q] Dusty/Unclean screen.

Well, I got an invite last week and ended up buying a One+ but now that I have it in my hand and I saw the screen and compared it to my Nexus 5 on FULL Brightness, the screen on the One+ looks grainy. Like there is a micro layer of dust on the screen making it uncrisp and unsharp. Its no as bright and Vibrant as the Nexus 5 is. Is this a hardware issue? It always looks like there is dust on it when its perfectly clear...

Anyone having this issue with the device as well? What are the possible solutions for this? I did contact the CS so lets see what they say...

Currently Using: Nexus 5 (RED 32GB) [★CarbonROM★ , ROOTED]

Incoming Devices: Don't know yet...

Retired Devices:One + One (64GB), Nexus 5 (32GB), Nexus 7 (2013) ,Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus, HTC Snap, Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Samsung Galaxy Mini, HTC Panache, iPad Mini, iPad 2, Toshiba Thrive

Nexus5 has Full-HD on a 5" screen, pushing it to 445dpi while Oneplus has the same resolution on a 5.5" screen resulting in 401dpi.
Especially close-up you will see that your OPO's screen looks less "real" and more computer-screenish. Comparing it to other phones (including my GS3) makes it look very beautiful so it's rather relative.

I do hope that is the cause of your issue and not a real physical layer of dust.
