    I read a lot of documents on my phone, and I noticed texts become blurry (almost look like they are shaking) when scrolling down/up the page. Is this normal?

    On the contrast, texts look crystal clear when scrolling on my iPhone 4.

    Thanks in advance.

    This only happens when the phone is bent.. check it again.

    Umm.. No, my phone is not bent...

    Checked iPhone 5S' displayed at Apple store yesterday. On all the iPhone 5S' in the store, texts are blurry when scrolling. I guess it's normal for this version of iPhone.

    That's interesting. I'll call Apple, and see what they have to say about it. Texts appear flawlessly clear on my iPhone 4 when scrolling.

    Phone is brand new. I got it 3 weeks ago.

    I guess "blurry" is not correct term to describe what I am seeing. Yes, I can read the texts fine, but they appear a bit "shaky" when scrolling.

    I already have an appointment at genius bar tomorrow (battery issue + display appearing noticeably yellow), so I will ask about "shaky" texts.

    Will do so.

    BTW, this is what my screen looks like. This can't be normal, right? The iPhone on the right side is mine. The phones on the left picture are at full brightness. And the phones on the right picture are at half brightness.

    Visited Apple Store this morning, and I was told that display has to be replaced. However, after replacing the display, apparently calibration process failed. So I was given a new phone.
