This is a scratch and a dead pixel?

    I am writing a new thread I can find nothing about it that I wonder about. What I was wondering mainly over is if someone know what it is kind of a flaw that I have on my iPhone?


    It is something that I am bothering me on because I have been careful not to hurt or lost phone. Does anyone have a clue what it could be? I find myself thats not looks like a scratch.

    Something else I was wondering about is that I have a dot near the top of the right side is white. I wonder if there is a dead pixel? Dead pixels are red? What would otherwise be? ¨ Hard to take a picture of it but I've managed to get by as best I could.


    Something that can go on the warranty?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can see nothing whatsoever in either picture indicating any issue. Either your pictures aren't showing it, or you're attempting to make a mountain out of a molehill with a non-issue.

    I can agree that second pic can be hard to see whats it but I wondering there is a way to check on iPhone/iPads if deadpixel or not. I still have warranty so i wanna trade in if so.

    I dont think that scratch is even on the display part. The displayed green image is on the right.

    The green you see is the background image. I'm thinking more on the black surface, which must be the rim on the front. There is some lighter and not as black as the edge should be.

    Unless you just got you phone the scratch is going to be hard to prove it was not due to the user. There have been some phones that had problems right out of the box but then the owner usually brings it to Apple's attention very quickly.

    I can't see the pixel problem.

    The weird thing is that it was not there when the phone was new. It looks at a place like seen that it is not a regular scratch created from it have had the phone with keys, etc. I always keep a pocket for my phone so i don't have the phone with coins etc.

    I'm very meticulous and bothers me on scratches and damages. On the pixel is on top at the right corner and a dead pixel is always Red? This is white and can be seen if you have wallpapers, apps, or images that are dark. What could it be then?

    A dead or stuck pixel can be any of or combination of the primary colours. Usually one transistor stops working that controls the pixel. But in your case, all 3 are stuck to form a white pixel.

    there is. display a completely black, or completely white image on the display. this will show dead pixels.
