    Ok, I had an iPhone 4 for 2.5 years and NEVER saw this happen before - it's a totally new thing I noticed after a few days with my new iPhone 5.

    I sometimes see pixels or a "screen door" effect on my iPhone screen. I can see it in all different apps, on photos, etc. I will forget about it, but then I will see it again. I'm not holding the phone any closer than I did my 4.

    It is more apparent when the phone is moving, like I pick it up and look at it or something, or tilt it back and forth.

    I took it in to a Verizon store just to look at the display phone, and I didn't see it happening on the display phone. But I DID see it happen on the employee's personal phone even though he said he couldn't see it himself.

    Anyone have any experience with this? Or hear of it? I could take it in to the Apple store I just don't want them to think I'm crazy.

    I've noticed the same thing just recently. It's definitely more apparent when you have the screen brighter. I compared to my friends 4s and although the 5 is brighter the 4s is smoother with out the screen thing going on. I don't remember seeing it when I first got my phone in December.
