    Anyone else having the same problem?

    if I look at a 100% black image, I see red spots/areas on my screen (google black image, or just open the camera app with your finger on it).
    it can also be seen in 100% white screen, but it's harder to see it (blue areas then).
    if the screen is turned off, no problem.
    if there is an image, it's impossible to spot it.

    am I the only one?

    Seems like by your description you have a red stuck pixel. I'd get that replaced.

    it's not a pixel, it's a whole area. like a circle of diameter the thickness of the iphone (7mm).
    I have 3 of them on the screen.

    no it's not. always same spot, even if image rotates. some apps loading screen that are black show it too

    I'm having the same issue. I have two reddish areas that just appeared out of nowhere without having damaged my phone at all. Did you ever find out what the cause was?

    In case anyone else is having this problem, its possibly due to overheating. This is especially true if you have the samsung A9 chipset. I never noticed because my 6s was in a case the second the t-mobile store took it out of the box. I set up a genius bar appointment and had mine replaced. Luckily I received the TMSC chip. Battery life has improved since then. $40 for a new glass screen protector was all I paid.
