Default Has anyone experienced this ?

I pulled my phone from my pocket earlier today and the screen was like this. I suspect I may have a dodgy unit but has anyone else seen anything like this ?

Im asking you this because I want to know if it is a software issue or hardware issue. So if when u boot the phone you see the same green waves screen on top of the black screen and the samsung logos then must likely it would be a hardware problem...

so need to check the water sensors etc. If u dont see the green waves then just do a full wipe if problem persist try flshing an other rom.

Hit thanks if I helped

Geez people, read the responses, it's a hardware problem... If you are squeezing around the edge and thi fixes it means there's a hardware problem....
You might have fixed this time but what might happen next time you put in your pocket?

It is hardware, maybe you placed the phone in your pocket or applied some pressure on it.
If this re occurs, have the display replaced..

I've conacted Samsung and they've sent me a package to post the phone to their service centre . unfortunately there's a 2 week return time. In the mean time I've bought a moto g that my mum will buy off me when I'm done with it.
