    See the two horizontal lines at each side of the screen near the top? Are these considered dead pixels, or something else? Is there anything that can be done to get rid of them? Thanks.

    Are they persistent? Is it still covered by AppleCare?

    No, they move around. So stuck rather than dead, I am guessing? Should I still try restoring?

    If they're moving around constantly, than it's likely a GPU failure or software issue. Stuck pixels do move but not continuously.

    Try to restore it, don't sync it with a backup.

    They are generally in the same area, but vary in size... sometimes what you see in the pic, sometimes the whole width of the screen.

    Try this:
    Go on a search engine, and type in "iPhone stuck pixel repair". Click the first link which should lead you to a site( http://www.ebaspace.com/iphone-app/ ) and click on "Repair iPhone LCD". I had one stubborn stuck pixel on my iPhone and used this and it's gone now.
    Best of Luck!
