I have just found out that there's two areas of whiter areas on my screen, with the rest darker. It's pretty noticeable when in landscape mode.

Should I see the apple store?

Since you're still under warranty it could be a good idea. do you have pics?

I'll try to take them with a digital camera - screenshots wont show obviously.

Right now it's only distracting when reading black text on white. I actually though it was a feature of the reading mode until I found it existed on a blank page

----------

Only worry is not bring able to see it in the apple store with all the bright light.

Are there any other flaws you are finding with the iPhone. Seems like would rather sit around and nitpick the phone to death rather then enjoying it.

Why yes, it has a roving bug, a broken headphone jack, and a paranoid user.

It doesn't have a broken headphone jack, that was on my other device

I think it was the tape. That static electricity can be deadly. Or maybe it was the poking of something into the microphone.
Yes, I can see how that would also cause such damage.

I'm sure randomly deleting files doesn't help.

Okay, reserved a spot at the genius bar. Hopefully I don't get a worse device.

Hopefully the Genius Bar would beg him to accept refund and not using/asking another iPhone nor replacement. I think it's a win win solution.

Beside, OP don't know much about iOS/OSX development, riiiiiigght? Don't sweat yourself, please? :eek:

I don't know pretty much anything about iOS/OSX development (I'd probably need to google to write a "Hello World"), but I use Adobe Flash to make games for iOS. (Compiled via AIR)

If you look close enough, you likely will!:eek:
Well, the current device is pretty distracting when reading black-text-on-white, as the dark spots are directly in the center.. And I paid $799 for it, I shouldn't have to deal with this.

Please be aware any problem you see with the iPhone is not a problem with the phone. It is a problem with the user being picky because nothing is perfect. But these same problems with any other device is a reason to call that device crap and if you happen to also be a former iPhone user using said crap, it now becomes an excuse to go running back to the iPhone and to quickly post said experience in this forum to discourage anyone looking at possibly trying any other non apple device. Truth Sauce!

Bottom line, you got a dud, take it back.

Yes, do you really need us to tell you that?
