    Anyone else have this on their phone? Really only visible when there's a dark image on the screen. It started a few months ago and doesn't appear to be getting worse, but it's there. My phone is out of warranty, not that this really effects it's usability. Anyone?

    Without a photo, I'm thinking it might be screen bleed?

    I'll try and post photos when I can. It's definitely not screen bleed, though.

    It's very, very faint. Unless I'm using something that has a very dark background near the edges of the display, like Spotify, it's not even noticeable. But I've heard this happens to LCD screens somewhat frequently. Not sure. I was just curious if anyone else had experienced this. It's so minor I don't think it would even hurt the resale value of the phone to be honest.

    Have contacted Apple and asked them for options and or what you're options are?

    I have a 5s and 6 you can see the line when the screen is pop up on the vibration button side . You might want to check is it the same problem as mine

    Because of the screen warp it causes the distortion on the display . It happened on both my iPhone and always on the vibration button side.
    For one of the phone is because of the battery bloated .

    I looked it up. I have no bulging or anything on my phone, so I don't think it's that.

    I'd still get it looked at. A battery can swell but not enough to completely show outside damage. When you press on the screen anywhere, does it distort?

    Again, we need a photo here.

    No distortion whatsoever. I'll get a pic up.
