    Hey. My iPhone 4 has the same issue as this iPad:

    [​IMG]

    It's not so visible as here, but it still exists. How does the black screen with 100% brightness look on your iPhone?

    In day to day use can you even notice it?

    If not, then its a non-issue.

    Of course, if its a new phone get it replaced otherwise, forget about it.

    I can see that thing when I'm watching movies... or launching the phone :D.

    Situation with getting a replacement in Poland isn't so easy as in USA. You have to wait 2 weeks to get a new iPhone and then it can turn out that they won't replace iPhone...

    Can't say I've ever turned off all the lights then opened and stared at a blank screen on my phone...so not really an issue for me...

    So you're saying that you don't have that issue?

    OK, yeah, if I set my phone to 100% bright with a black screen in a dark room, I can detect a bit of bleed on the edges of the screen.

    That said - why would you have your phone at 100% brightness in a dark room? Is this a "real world" problem in any way, or are you just looking for something to complain about?

    no i think he's saying that he hasn't put his phone in the conditions necessary to notice it.

    if the only time you notice this is if you are in complete darkness and have your phone on a completely black background i'd say w/e don't worry about it.

    if you see it all the time and you just used this picture to illustrate the problem to us then yes you should try to get a replacement

    Or stare intensely at the center of the screen.

    It's fairly common to watch a movie on your phone while in bed... if the film was letter boxed, you'd have black around the edges with brightness turned on high.

    I suppose you could see it in that case - but I've watched a lot of movies on my iPhone while traveling, and I don't set the brightness to High unless I'm in a well-lit area. It's unnecessary.

    So I always stare at a black screen at 100% brightness.

    If you stay out of totally dark rooms with you phone set at 100% brightness, you will be fine.

    The rest is OCD as you would NEVER notice this any other way!:mad:
