Unhappy [Q] what is this on my new samsung 2014 tablet?

I just got this xmas am. Samsung galaxy 10.1 2014 edition. These lines have become more frequent in the past few days. On top of these, the note keeps crashing and freezing. I am not thrilled. Anyone know what is going on?

It sure looks like a hardware issue, maybe a memory fault. I would take it back to the supplier for an exchange. Sorry.

Them lines are basically the same appearance as the wacom digitizer...very odd.

If you have a look at this wacom digistizer picture near the sides it is identical to the one you have running across in your screen. The Note 10.1 2014 has that exact matrix on the entire screen however its transparent and its only barely visable under BRIGHT lighting and specific angles.

I'm no expert but yours could be hardware or software - I'd just go back and get a replacement.

Do you have a hand strap on your case/cover that touches the screen when closed ?
I've seen reports of the strap leaving a dirty "imprint" on the screen that you can actually wipe away with a cloth.
I see this on my S4... the Smart Cover window always leaves a rectangular dirty mark on my screen that I can wipe away.
Might be something else though...
Hope you get it solved... it must be like having an injured child
