    Guys I have seen at leat 10 iPhones with a small mark near the signal indicator. Its very small mark and can be seen in different angles only. Its not a pixel for sure.

    Please ca you guys have a look and let me know. I have read about the OCD's on the forum but I can assure you its there. I have it on my 6S and 6S plus and its almost in the same area.

    Its very faint and you will need to use full brightness.

    Other family members and friends also have the similar marking in the same area.

    Thanks

    I see no mark at my normal viewing brightness of about 40%.

    Why would I want to crank the brightness up to 100% to see a small mark that can only be seen at a certain angle?

    Okay well they are greyish I have them in 6 phones in my house.... I use 2 my self.

    It's like it's beneath the pixels as they are all lit.

    Any photo or perhaps some sort of a picture of the mark? Or a better description as to its shape and size, and more specific location in relation to the "signal indicator"?

    Take an upload a screenshot from the iPhone itself. To take the screenshot, hold the power button in and press the home button. This should save a picture of the screen in the Photos area of the phone.

    That's it?
    I can (almost) see something there.
    How can you...
    Wow...
    Not terribly obvious when you had to add a sheaf of arrows to point out the location :D

    OK...
    Maybe you could turn your brightness down slightly.
    Do you really need the white wallpaper? I can't stand it, but that might be just me...

    I'm not seeing anything OP, IT may be there, but I'm not seeing it. I'm assuming it so small, that perhaps its nothing to worry about.

    Just hard to believe that you have returned 5 iPhones due to this exact same problem that we can not see.

    Not visible at normal magnifications, slightly visible when zoomed. If it were me I wouldn't bother.

    Yup, it's there.

    They're all defective OP. Guess you'll have to get an Android phone. :)
