Default s5 grainy screen

Hi everyone.

i dont know if anyone felt the same way like me.
i feel that my s5 is having kinda grainy screen... its like a thin layer of grainy.. so u can see it when u scroll up/down. it stays. its not really crystal clear.. the feel is like putting anti-oil screen protector.

yes, text and everything is crisp.. but a thin grainy layer is annoying.. checked another phone at samsung experience store showing the same
its actually mentioned by s5 review Erica Griffin

do guys feel the same way or it's just my over-obsessive eye? lol i hope i was wrong...

sorry for my bad english...

Coming from an LCD screen, if I look close enough I can see it, but it really doesn't bother me lol

I had that on my Note 2 before. I had it exchanged and the new phone did not have the issue.
Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 - better than Tab S

Note 3 Stock ROOTED TW 4.4.2 (XXUEND5) -returned for faulty screen, N900T - returned for faulty screen and buzzing speaker.

Note 2 - Sold

S4 - FNB8 Stock rooted

S3 - TW 4.3 Stock rooted (Still awesome phone)

I am sure it is not because I already tested a few display samples from 3 different shops, Walmart and Tmobile shops. I tested them because I was considering buying one too. But not anymore, I am waiting for the LG G3.
