Default Dead pixel

Received my moto g US version by surprise today. What a smooth phone. And then I found a couple dead pixels near the center. Still not sure whether to return it or replace it.

I've been using mine all day today and I love it. It sucks that you got one with a defective screen. I'd just get it replaced under warranty if you don't mind going a bit longer without one.

Did you pay for a phone with 2 dead pixels or did you pay for a phone with no dead pixels? Just replace it. I don't know why you guys wait so long or feel any guilt about asking for a replacement.

It's white pixels on black background. I tried several apps to fix it but no luck.

You will see a white dot in the middle of a black screen.

My second Moto G had a stuck green pixel right up top on the status bar. I used a dead/stuck pixel app on the market for a few minutes, it went away!

I just checked and sadly I do have ONE white dead pixel on the top right of my screen. WIll moto replace it for having only one dead pixel? Because i heard some hardware companies have a minimum amount of dead pixels your screen can have for them to be able to give you a replacement.

Also, does white means its dead or stuck?
