Would you keep a phone with one dead pixel?

    I recently purchased a 16 gig iPhone. Extremely happy with it. Only issue is that there is one dead pixel in the very lower right hand corner. Not too much of a distraction, but its there. The screen displays blacks beautifully and white pretty good.

    Would you return it, or would you keep it? I am afraid if I return it, I will get another ****** screen.

    Apple's policy usually excludes returns for a single stuck/dead pixel.

    Since it's good otherwise, I'd keep it.

    One dead pixel would annoy me soo much! Seen as the iPhone is graphically orientated.. I'd hate it.

    This is WAAAAY off topic but is it not "Seeing as the iPhone is..." rather than "Seen as the iPhone is...". This has been driving me nuts for ages!!! (As would a dead pixel...I'd take it back!)

    I say return it. If you have the chance, why wouldn't you? You'll be kicking yourself later if you don't.

    i would keep it for now and if more pixels show up, return it-- they do have a "pixel policy" of some sorts, but am not 100% sure how it translates into iPhones
