I'm wondering if the faint vertical gray lines I see on my G3 are a device specific issue or if everyone is having the same problem. For some reason whenever I look at the stock background or anything with white or light colors I can see vertical gray lines on my G3's screen. They aren't that noticeable, but now that I have noticed them, I seem to always notice them. Does anyone else have this problem or should I exchange my device for a new one?

So looking at a white or light background makes these "grey bars" visible?

All the LG G3 phones have it. Some people notice them, some don't. And they vary in degree
