Hey!
When you make screenshots, does the dor appear?
As I see there are 2 options:
1. (Most common) you have dead pixels. This means those pixels are literally dead, and as a consequence, black permanently. The only way tk fix is it is by replacing the screen

2. (Very rare) a software problem. In this case by some reason those pixels aren't been rendered, though this is a remote possibility, but posible. For checking, if you capture a screenshot and the dot appear, then there may be a software problem. Otherwise, the phone is rendering that black dot, but by some reason the screen isn't showing it up.

So please let me know if when capturing a screenshot you see the dot.

They say they can’t screenshot it. It’s a dead pixel. if the device is under warranty, use the warranty. If not, rlly nothing you can do, there are some yt vids that flash lights your screen, and that can potentially fix it.

There is a small possibility it’s a app overlay doing this, does still appear when you are in the settings app (settinsg does not show overlays unless you toggled the option in developer settings)

It appears everywhere settings videos and anywhere else.. except a screenshot if i do that it goes. normally a dead pixel is quite blurry and you can tell the burn etc etc this is a exact round dot like its a notification or sensor initially i thought it was a camera or light ambient sensor lol i may have toggled something in developer settings lol its so exact and round i thought i may have mucked around with somthing in the settings

Dead pixels don't need to be blurry. Dead pics and screen burning are different things. Dead pixels may happen by an impact to a certain region of the screen that was hard enough to kill those pixels. Maybe a shortcut as well. I don't really know. To me it seems dead pixels
