Hi, does anyone else has a big C like a water mark on your phones?

The app is wifi Analyzer.

That is a burn in. No doubts, you should run some app that does what Allgamer said, and if possible even with RGB colors as well.

That looks suspiciously like the shape of the coloured print on the protective sheet that a brand new galaxy s was shipped with.

Could it be that the phones have been in the sun with the protective film on?

I remember AMOLED screens being sensitive to light, that light being th ereason for wear. but external sunlight MIGHT also have that effect. When it is the sun with that cover for a few weeks...

possible?

Did you used Invisible Shield? Because those who watered the phone with Invisible Shield got onwed.

I hope you didn't.
