    I’m having the same issue. That’s all I see now when I turn on the phone. Major bummer.

    Wow that’s on the other side to mine. Does it start where the very top and bottom edges meet the bend of the corner? Mine was the right side edge but stopped right at the bend of each corner.

    I wouldn’t have even wasted my time writing this post. I would have had that device boxed and returned within 20 minutes.

    No, I bought mine in Canada (unlocked 64gb, space gray). I returned it btw. I'm going to wait this out and see what happens.

    I bought a 64 Silver unlocked from the Apple store, no green line. Although there have been a few instances where there is what looks like a smudge in the top left corner. Once i turn the screen off and back on again it's gone. It has surfaced about 4 times, not a big deal but still annoying. Not enough for me to return the device though (unless it keeps happening). In your case I'd return it asap.

    No, mine was Australia.
    I call BS on this!
    You have over 6,500 posts so I believe you post a fair amount on here.
    Now tell me, what time does your closest Apple store close?
    Mine closes at about 9pm on launch day and didn’t open on the Saturday until 9am.
    Since the issue didn’t happen until after 11pm, I thought it prudent to write here and see if this became a more widespread problem.
    Was this not the thing to do in the circumstances?

    Wonder how many others are affected by this? Hopefully this does not become a big issue.

    People were supposedly to enjoy these bs amoled displays adopted by apple. But apparently it's quite the opposite for some already. It's safe to say by now that amoled is still a ****** tech.

    Question any gaming or CPU/GPU intensive tasks on the phone before this? Maybe any excess heat or overheating?

    I think I’d just downloaded an app. The reddit one which is blue. Not sure of its name, I deleted it and now scared to reinstall it!

    That sucks. This was one of the first things I checked when I got mine after I saw your post. I had no issues. Didn't read all the way through, but hopefully you got a replacement fairly easily.

    Yep no issues whatsoever!
    Edit: the replacement has been faultless also.

    I had that too! At first I thought I was going crazy, but it's a bug in the live wallpaper luckily :) At least for me it is. Are you using a live wallpaper? Specifically the one with red, blue and white?

    Definitely a bummer I remember MBPs one year had a similar issue and it's root cause was faulty GPUs but since the iPhone 8 uses the same chip and no know issues have popped up it must be the screen or ribbon cable on the X.

    Yes! Same wallpaper. Well that's a load off my mind! Because other than that, this device has been flawless for me. I always love getting a defect-free unit :)
