Phone [Q] LG G2 screen problem - yellow spots

After two months of use I suddenly discovered yellow spots on display, which can be seen in the light background.
Do you have any idea what can I do with it?

I have the same problem, I'm going to send it away, I still have warranty, I hope they'll fix it soon.
I just hate this...

I have the exact same issue in the exact same spot. I'm still under warranty, thing is I rooted my phone, went back to original room which was suppose to unroot my phone but when I go to the isis app, it says this is a rooted phone blah blah, so I'm scared I'm going to get an out of warranty fee. Tf do I do?

I read that some tablets have the same problems which are caused by the adhesive under the display. Turning on for some hours the display at full brightness can help in this situation. But I only know abaut this problem abaout new tablets. You have the problem with an few month old mobile...

Default Yellow Spot no garantee??

Same here,

Yellow spots in the middle after a few minutes use. The spot gets bigger after intensive use and there is a small faint yellow line going from the spot to the bottom of the phone.

Went back to the shop with it, waited 4 weeks just to learn that LG does NOT think this is a fault of theirs so no garantee!!! My vendor is contacting them to find out what exactly makes them think this a is not a production flaw.

I'm gonna try and send it back to them anyway. This time i'll say its an overheating cpu in the description.

I had nothing but trouble with this LG phone. So if you'r planning to buy one I hope you read my posts before making a decission.

I'll keep you posted

I got mine changed with a new one, after they tried to change the display and it didn't work. So, I suggest you to insist.
Good luck!

I have the exact same problem. Yellow line on the top right of the screen. Looks just like your photos. I think it got there after some of the updates, the phone started to get really warm. Could it be some kind of burn? Melted glue? Guess I will have to take it to the shop, but not looking forward having it in the shop for a couple of weeks or more. Really annoying screen problem though.

The yellow line issue has occurred on other devices. On the Surface pro it develops due to heat damaging the screen, you'll need to have yours replaced.
