Is this pretty common with Sony Xperias?
Every phone manufacturer suffers from these problems not just sony, I remember it was a common problem with the nexus 5 when it got released, if it's only 1 dead pixel then it should be much of a problem, besides I have heard you need at least 3 dead pixels to get a replacement

do you guys check for dead pixels with a magnifier? As now with these high dpi screens it's pretty hard to identify "one" dead pixel to me... maybe mine has but i don't think i can notice it without a magnifier lol

I only noticed it on the black screen in the dark. It doesn't bother me, it's only one pixel.
