    That's not a pixel, a pixel would be a perfect very small square. That looks like a small piece of hair or fabric

    Oh haha I thought that was the problem. A dead pixel would be a completely black square, and a stuck pixel would be one color. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like just a blurry gray blob inside that circle, which wouldn't be a dead pixel.

    Could be dust, you could always take it to the genius bar and take a look. I don't think at this point they have any screen only replacement yet. You might as well wait for those.

    You'd have to take it to them and find out, as I mentioned it's almost impossible to see in the photo. I don't work for Apple so I have no idea.

    Alex, I am afraid you are hopeless. You just can not stand not trying to find something wrong with you phone. I have done all I can, but I give up on your. You really need some help.

    Best of luck.

    So what if you get it replaced. You will just continue to drive yourself crazy looking for something on the new phone. It might have REAL problems but I know now you are not going to change.

    I feel sorry for you.

    Cases and screen protectors won't stop dust from going under the screen.

    Not going to help. You can tell yourself what ever you want and you will still pick your phone apart.

    You can not help yourself.

    I would think step one would be to take the screen protector off and take a better picture.

    how about using a mirror and the built in camera. You may need to cover up the camera LED light

    ------
    People here are thinking it is NOT a bad pixel but --
    If one was to take a picture using screen shot do bad pixels show up ? - I am guessing not as the data is taken from the video buffer - but I don't know ?

    There are apps and color pictures to help find bad pixels

    Now, in the old day we just used a different desktop picture and lived with it bit I sure understand wanting a new iPhone to be error free and Apple is very good in that area.

    Please, please stop this, bring it to the Genius Bar and be done with it. Members already told you what to do, please do it.

    Damn that is really bad quality control...but I guess its hard to see if the screen isn't on.

    Was this kind if stuff normal for previous iPhone releases?

    Just call Apple and they'll take care of you. You should've just called them in the first place.

    There are always some people with some issues with any iPhone or iOS device or really any mass produced product.
