    My iPhone 7 screen has a thin strip of slightly lighter screen running vertically down the far right side of the screen. It's only slightly noticeable when screen displays darker colours. Otherwise screen seems ok. Anyone one else with this?

    Sorry for poor quality but look at far right hand side and you see a strip of brighter light all the way down the right side.

    Oddly when the screen is complete black like the compass app then you don't notice the issue, it's only on grey colours and also blues, greens and reds.

    I don't see the issue in the picture but if it's apparent enough to the point you can notice it without looking too closely, then I would recommend you to take it to an apple store or wherever you bought it for an exchange.


    Edit:

    For the record, my 7+ and mom's 7 don't have this issue at all no matter how closely I look at it.

    Why don't you try just to enjoy your phone and stop looking for non-existing issues..?

    I am, just wanted to see what other people think. My 6S does not display the same issue. It's not a massive drama. Rest of the screen has the usual display unevenness which I'm used to with apple products. I bought it new off eBay so can't take it back anyway. Nice £150 saving off RRP.

    Look closely at the right hand side of the screen and note the brighter strip of light running down the side of the screen.

    It's really barely noticeable, probably it's only visible on gray backgrounds.
