    Alright, i've been loving the crap out of my iphone 4 doing everything right with it when one night, i notice this bright dot on the screen, at first i figured it was just a reflection, so i change the angle, It's still there. Even during the daylight its there. Anyone else have this problem? I really don't wanna take it to the apple store for them to call me crazy.

    Is it a yellow spot? Or is it a really tiny bright dot? You could have a dead pixel

    Sounds like a pixel issue. Bring it in and get a replacement.

    I haven't seen one on a iphone 4 personally , however I have seen them in previous iPhones . If there is any problem with your phone that you feel isn't right , you should take it to apple . From what I've heard , they are not giving much fuss about replacing iPhone 4s right now .

    It cod be dust or a collection of pixels. In any event return it for a new one. Doesn't sound right to me!

    I had a little reflection looking spot on my screen yesterday. Odd thing is that it only showed itself when I was playing Flight Control. It didn't appear anywhere else. So I shut the iPhone off, turned it back on, and it was gone.

    Have you tried that? You might as well try restoring it 'cause the Genius bar will probably recommend trying that first before replacing it. I could be wrong though.

    You are not crazy. That's clearly a dead pixel. Once you notice it your eye will always be drawn to it. Apple will give you a replacement quickly for that.

    Dead pixel. Take it to the Apple Store and they will replace it.
