    Alright so in the middle of the screen i can see a pretty decently noticeable scratch that is under the glass. I checked to see if it was the glass and it isnt, its under the glass somehow and i dont get how some **** like this could happen? i even ran a toothpick over the scratch to try and see if i can feel any "bumps" or stoppage from what scratches usually feel like when you run for finger nail through it

    Does this look like a long scratch or like a chip? I noticed yesterday and started a thread about what looks like a stone chip in a car's windshield under the screen on the edge of the viewing area. Like I said in my thread I'm not sure if it is an air bubble, separation of the lcd and the glass or moisture.

    How long have you had the phone that you didn't notice it before? If it really is under the glass obviously it's a warranty issue for Apple.

    I really doubt this guy has a camera capable of capturing the kind of scratch he is describing.

    its like long scratch, not that long but its a scratch.. i tried taking a toothpick over the screen to feel for any scratches and bumps you know but nothing, i looked in the light at all angles to see for any scratches and nothing. i also have a slight scratch thats under the glass by the home button, by the black area, its defitnetly under the glass too and looks like some paint or something was scratched

    Other picture

    The scratch is that gold speck/ line by the end of the screen protector on the left side where the screen protector doesnt cover

    I actually can't see anything in this case, and I usually notice the bends/chips/scratches/scuffs that people post about :confused:

    edit: is it the small line to the bottom left of the home button between the screen protector and bottom edge?

    Yes that gold speck under the left side of the screen protector right by the case where the protector isnt covering

    You cant see the scratch in the white picture? That black little line in the middle running diagnol?

    Yeah, found that too. So one is under the screen and the other just on the bezel? The one on the screen might be dead pixels, not an expert on those though

    The scratch by the home button is under the glass, and the scratch in middle also seems to be a scratch under the glass. I tried running my fingernail and a toothpick over the scratches to feel for a bump and for some stoppage but nothing. I looked in the light at all angles for the scratch in the middle and i dont see any scratch at all
