Boo my android had this 4 years ago
Believe me, people. This is NOT photoshopped and it’s more widespread than first thought. So much so, it’s even taken hold of the iPhone X packaging.
More likely the display controller than the display. A display issue would not be likely to take out a whole line.
It's perfectly normal for a $1000 phone to have a green line down the screen.... uh, it's a feature. Erm, you're looking at it wrong...
Pretty much all this
So get a replacement? Every hardware has a small amount of units with issues.
Hey, you must be new here. Pleased to meet you. You’re a bit too rational for this place but try and have a pleasant stay.
Hello green line
I has very similar on my S7 Edge, a pink line running down the LCD. It was caused by having the phone face in in pretty tight jeans. My thigh was putting a lot of pressure on the top of the screen and caused the line. When pressing on the Samsung logo, the line would dance about and react to further pressure, and when pressure was removed it would go back to the original spot.
I do mobile repairs and LCD refurbishment, and AMOLED screens are incredibly fragile! I would not be surprised if this is an issue along the same lines (pardon the pun) as my S7E.
Also for the people saying 20 odd reports is nothing. What about Joe Bloggs that doesn't go onto Reddit or MacRumors to complain about it? What you see online is never a true representation of the real figures. Not saying it's thousands of units, but for sure it'll be a lot more than 20.
Happened to my friends Samsung TV a few years ago as well.
Thank You Early Adopters
I been reading its only samsung panels ... not LG
Still better than the notch.
Yes, we all have the proof that Samsung makes 100% of the panels for the X, if you would have followed the news about the X even for a little the last couple of months you would know that... Maybe research a bit better before commenting...
I’ve been around here for a few years now, but I get your point
I agree completely. I'm going out on a limb and speculate it's related to the manner in which the OLED is folded around itself at the bottom to connect with the Display Controller.
You mean as long as it's Apple products, because when only 92 of over 1 million Samsung Note 7 phones had battery issues, Apple people here weren't so kind and were quick to pour salt all over it.
Why is everyone giving Apple a pass on this with the argument "well, gee if you make millions of anything some are gonna be bad" How about Apple improves quality control and catches these defective products in the factory?
Same reason Samsung got a pass with pink screen? Of course "everyone" gives a manufacturer they like a pass and a chance to fix the issue. Right? LIke with the Note 7 as well.
I believe most of the green line instances occurred after using it for a short time. So would not have shown up in the factory.
But nobody gave Samsung a pass with the Note 7, in fact people spent the best part of a year making exploding jokes.

That's nonsense; you telling me they wouldn't have stress-testing some devises before being comfortable going to manufacture?

While a lot of negative press was generated from the Note 7 debacle, there were posts on this website, giving the Note 7 a pass. So your statement isn't a true in the general sense. Generalizing with words like "everyone" or "nobody" is never a true statement being pedantic. People do have different thoughts about different matters.
And the burn in.
I’m interested in how people unequivocally say Face ID is easier. With Touch ID I can pull my phone from by pocket and it can be unlocked and at home screen without me even looking at it, and without me pressing a button or doing a gesture. Quick draw I win every time. Sure there are rare instances when it may not work (wet fingers and gloves); but I can do it from any orientation and with my choice of (multiple) fingers, and I’ve since read Face ID might have issues with wet faces? And of course with some sunglasses and such, plus limited angle and orientation. And since we’re forced to swipe up to open, gloves will be an issue there too. I’ve tried it and I prefer Touch ID for my use case.
It’s fine if you love it, but I get annoyed when fans suddenly proclaim anything other than the newest tech is all of a sudden Stone Age and inferior.
