Literally COLUMNS Of Dead Pixels On My iPhone 5.

Ok so I had the black iPhone 5 and it wasn't until I changed my background to all black that I noticed on the left AND right side of the screen dead pixels that literally looks like a galaxy.

I then exchanged it at Apple for a white one, and it's the same thing.

I'll try to take a picture, but damn is anyone else getting these?

Literally like 50 on both sides going along the sides of the display.

Only viewable when in apps/videos that have black backgrounds.

My display is perfect. BTW - those are stuck pixels, not dead (dead = always black). My daughter's old beat up 3G has a few hot pixels scattered over the screen, but it's many years old.

I'd love to see a pic of that. But yeah, take it back to Apple.
