So can you post an example of it? It's really hard to understand what you mean by "dots". For one it might be pixels, for others a spot of dust or something.

I have two coloured artifacts on my screen when in camera mode. One is red, one is green, they are a few pixels in size. However, when I view a photo in the gallery they are not there, so it is clearly not an issue with the screen or with the image sensor.

Is this the kind of thing you are referring to?

I wouldn't worry about it. It does not affect the pictures. It is not an issue with the camera in any physical way and it is not an issue with your phones screen.

I'd be interested to know what causes it, but it's not a real problem, just odd..

Try taking a screenshot of the issue while the camera is open. Do the artifacts show up on the screenshot picture?

I see the middle dot, but can you highlight the other one?

Its too small and is lost in the resolution when its uploaded. It was in the top right corner about 2cm screen distance to the right of the flash sign and about 1cm from top of screen.

The one u highlighted is indeed the one in the middle.

After seeing this new thread with the same issue: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50269795

I too can see two artifacts while in the camera app. If the screen is divided into four squares, the middle of the top two squares have these white artifacts.
  • They only appear in the camera app.
  • They do not show in pictures taken.
  • One does show in a screenshot. (attached)

From what I can tell, it is either an issue with the camera app or the sensor has defects that are eliminated by the camera processor.
