    Has anyone noticed this?

    I was just going to apply a screen protector and I put my phone in the sunlight so that I could better see the dirt on my display and clean it, but after I cleaned it I noticed some rather small particles of dust I guess, that I couldnt wipe away.

    anyone noticed the same ?? I think they might got there while assembly..idk

    I remember when I bought the 5 it was scratched right out of the box. Mistakes happen, especially early on in a product launch.

    Gonna schedule a genius appointment?

    Dust under screen ?

    This is a very common issue... I don't understand why they don't use clean rooms to assemble the panels. If I have to look for the problem I keep it. If it jumps out at me every time I use the phone I exchange it. Be warned though that I had to exchange five times once before I got a phone with no dust. In any case best of luck.

    P.S. My dust is at lower left but it isn't easily noticeable so no phone roulette for me this year!
