    Hi guys i received my black iphone 5 a few days ago its week 41.
    The first day i didnt notice anythink on the screen but today i see in the right side of the screen a little tiny dot like brown black color.

    Its not a dead pixel i think because it dont look like a square size , its more like a round dot.

    I know that u cant help me probably but im wondering what can it be?
    Maybe a little spot from dust under the screen or it was a litle bug and its just stuck in there when the engineer stuck the screen with the rest of the iphone's body?

    Is there a way to see if its a dead pixel?

    I ll try to upload a photo tomoro..

    Round dots are usually dust on the sensor of a digital camera. They are most easily seen when photographing a light image such as a sky or white wall with even texture.

    Unless you have had the iPhone opened by a non-Apple tech, that would count as a defect present at time of sale.

    Get it swapped out.
