Default [Q] Dead/stuck pixel? Need some insight…


I just bought a nexus 7, I am really happy with it! But there is one little problem…

I have some kind of stuck or hot pixel. It just appears with a black background not with any of the colors or with a white background, just with a background that is black or a very dark shade of gray. Its really only noticable with a dead pixel test.

Is it a defective pixel or maybe dust? I checked it, but it seems it is not dust.

I really love my nexus 7, it has no touch issues just this stuck pixel, should I live with it or ask for a exchange?

I personally would replace it. However if everything else works well, you might want to keep it, since you might get one with issues

You should have no qualms about asking for an exchange. You didn't pay for Google and the retailer to give you what I consider a defective screen.

My first N7 2013 had the same problem. Best Buy gave me another, no questions asked.
