    Open a blank safari tab. Do notice certain areas of your iPhone 4S displays white darker, and certain areas displays it lighter? Look at it straight on, not at an angle.

    "Issue: There is a white strip light in the middle of the phone which is slightly visible."

    I just got my old one exchanged for a new one, and the genius said it is not normal. On my old one, it was pretty noticeable specially in Reader mode, on my new one it's about half as apparent. You can't see it unless you look for it.

    Does this happen to everyone?

    Yes, I can see that "white strip light" in the middle on both my iPhone 4S if I look for it. :( One was bought in the middle of November while the other one was bought 3 days ago. I thought it is normal but seeing what you've written, I guess it's not & I should bring them both back to Apple for an exchange.

    Thanks for the info. Appreciate it. :)

    I don't have this issue also, but I had it on one of my previous replaced 4S'. Can you post some pic?

    Likely caused by pressure against the backlight diffuser sheet (to spread out the LED backlight bar behind the IPS panel), but it's not normal (at least it shouldn't be).

    I'm not going to bother replacing it as the white light isn't very noticeable. However, my home button doesn't go as far as on my old one, and doesn't deliver the 'click' sound. Should I be concerned?

    Yeah, but it's harder to use multitasking since it won't register a quarter of the time.

    My phone has the same issue, but I am going to replace it for a dead pixel.

    Is it worth exchanging for a dead pixel?

    Yes. that indicates you have a crap screen. A dead pixel is never nice.

    Yes you should. Go sell your phone and buy an Android.
