I have the Verizon case, you think it's causing it?

PS I heard that the blue splotches were caused by too much pressure on the phone, for example, Verizon's case caused quite a few people to get the blue spot. How did the rest of you get the blue spot?
No splotches on the new one. You think it's the case? Any good case recommendations? Not too bulky

I'm using the Verizon silicone case and I don't have the dot.

That's what I have too Jay. I don't think its so much the pressure while its on, its the wear and tear of taking it off. My replacement didn't creek and was solid until I put on and took off my you case. It flexes the back cover and is probably a screen component underneath. New one no blotches yet. We will see.

I was thinking the same thing. My problem is I take cases off often to clean the dust off the screen and the edges... going to replace it today with another at my store since holiday return is still going on...I haves diztronic coming in today and I'm afraid to put it on
