My screen has 2 problems:
  • I have about 7 dead pixels spread over the upper half of my screen. Very annoying, 2 are next to each other and thus extra visible. Worst to look at when I am viewing a dark coloured area.
  • It looks like the status-bar has burnt in. http://imgur.com/a/YM8xH#0
I'll try to make some decent pictures with a DSLR next weekend.

Does anybody else experience similar issues with the screen?

I'm afraid I have to relock the bootloader and flash a fresh install if SE advices me to hand it in, and I will also be without a phone for weeks.

Well well....those are not dead pixels there.....but yes something weird is there's. I tryed look white picture with gallery and it looks strange.
After that I closed gallery and opened one more time and all was ok.
Especially this looks bad when I opening xda app.....tomorrow I try take some screenshots.

Edit:
Upper corner is looks weird
And I used "dead pixels detection " in market. Screenshot is built-in anyway.

Try using this app: https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result
Especially the grey (second) and the grayscales screen unhide a lot. But how can you make screenshots of your faulty screen? So in your case it's the software?

Yes, I think its software problem.
I make screenshots with built-in app.
And no difference what dead pixels app I'm using, only grey color looks bad.

I think it's definately a hardware issue in my case.

I forgot to take a picture of the dead pixels. Let's see if it can be made visible with camera (Sony A100 DSLR 10.2MP)
EDIT: impossible without a micorscope
