    Hi, can someone tell me what a dead pixel or stuck pixel is like what is the difference. I thought i seen some sort of tiny white spec on my iphone but it depends on the angel that your looking at it and only in the black area . Today i can barely see it if at all, could this just be dust ?
    I tried that online app that you can check for pixel issues but i did not see anything.
    I want to make sure its not a pixel issue before i try exchangeing it.
    Thanks all

    by the sounds of it, it may be dust, as it appears and disappears

    if its a stuck pixel, it can be fixed. navigate to this link on the iphone to fix it:

    be careful though, i dont know if it could cause epileptic seizures!

    if it was a dead pixel would it look different than a stuck pixel ?

    Since it may just be dust than i can live with that. I havent actually seen what a dead or stuck pixel on the iphone looks like to even compare too.
    But with mine if you have a certain angel u dont see anything.

    Thanks for your reply

    A dead pixel is a single pixel that simply does not turn on - it will always stay black, as if the screen were off. A stuck pixel is one that is "stuck" on a specific color - usually red green or blue. So long as the screen is on the stuck pixel will stay that color.

    as said, a dead pixel is black, a stuck pixel is a colour
    it sounds like dust, as a dodgy pixel would be visible from any angle
