[Q] Samsung Galaxy S III Screen Possibly Faulty ?
I have looked at the forums and I can make a space cadet promise that I did not find anything similar to what I want to ask. So here it goes:
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 which is just 4 months old. I use it for casual gaming and mostly for reading books, etc.
I have the brightness set to 'auto' and just below the half mark to conserve battery. I also have power-saver mode enabled (limit CPU performance disabled).
There are two things I have observed, one of them is recurring and one just happened a few minutes ago.
1. Every time I press the power button, swipe and unlock the screen I can see a flicker in the screen and three, evenly spaced black lines (very faint) that disappear in a fraction of a second. This is recurring.
2. Just when I pressed the power button to unlock the screen, the entire screen was plain blue for a flash of a second and then there was the lock screen image of the flower. This happened for the first time.
The phone has not been modified in any way. It is a stock phone.
I would like to ask if this is a defect or something
I read online that Galaxy S III is one of the most problematic phones with a large number of recalls. I would like to diagnose the problem early and send it back if there is, genuinely, a problem.
