Default Ring of Yellow Spots on Screen (White Background)

Has anyone seen a ring of yellow spots on around the screen when view on a white background ? or am I the only one holding a lemon?

the yellow spots doesn't seem to hamper normal operation so i haven't really bang any tables at HTC yet but it is disturbing for a brand new device.

i'm also hoping this is the glue that is holding the screen to the phone and it wil eventually dry up and disappear like Samsung S2

Thanks for posting.

On my 3rd trip to have my second unit replaced, the third one had a huge yellow spot that's visible on the welcome screen (HTC). It's located at the upper left corner. It's interesting to note however that I did not notice yellow spots on the first two units.

The store I went to only had three on stock, and all of 'em had "cosmetic" defects. The third one having the yellow spot and a silvery dot inside the glass that's not part of the LCD nor the bezel. Dunno where that came from.

Cancelled my purchase and I guess will just hold off on buying a new one 'til HTC can sort their sh** out.

Today when I was browsning on a white homepage I noticed this as well. But it's so little that I don't see it as problem.

i bought a 2nd unit for my dad and it had the SAME problem .. yellow dots all around the sides of the screen. I'm suspecting that it's the glue that's holding the screen. it's not a functional issue but looks ugly that's all. Now considering if I should return both sets to HTC.

i was feeling kind of down because of it actually, thought that was me having this problem only. but other people encountering the same, someone went to have a one to one replacement, yet, still having this issue, hope HTC will improve soon

Here are some pictures when I was unboxing it *just for sharing*

I went to replace the 2 phones at the service center yesterday and they wouldn't commit to a 1-1 replacement claiming they need to get "management" approval. They also won't confirm that the new replacement phones will solve the problem saying that the replacement phones (if given) comes straight from the warehouse.

will update what happens when i receive the new phones.
