    So I've got my 5th Mini by now as the others had dust under the screen and my first one had a tint. This one is almost okay, execpt for this really small grey dot. I don't know if it's a dead pixel as it is not black but grey (maybe it's still illuminated by pixels around it?).
    Anyway, as I've had much issues with getting a good one I really don't know if I should take it back again. To most people it's not even that apparent but I can still see it and it annoyes the crap out of me when I do.

    The strange thing is though, that when I zoom in on a picture I made of it or look at it trough a magnifier, I can't really identify which one it is anymore. So does anybody know what it could be? I'm 99% certain it is not a particle of dust as that would be visible when the screen is off.

    So anyway, what do you guys say. Should I take it back again?

    Yup. I went through 4 ipad 3s because of dead pixels, dust, tinting, and a fold in the screen under the glass. That as weird. So... Yes. Open in store and check there, save yourself the gas.

    Could be dust, could be a dead pixel -- kind of hard to tell without a picture of some sort. If it really bothers you that much, I'd suggest returning it and continuing to return it until you find a flawless iPad mini.

    A "weak" pixel! Lol! Take it back to the Apple store I dare you, can you get someone to film it and post to You Tube? I want to watch the assistant try to keep a straight face when you come out with your weak pixel that you have trouble seeing under a magnifier.
