    I have this strange group of pixels that go super bright on white/lighter colored backgrounds but are fine on black. This is obviously a major issue and major annoyance and I'll get it swapped as soon as they have stock to do so, but just curious if anyone else has seen this.

    It's a dead pixel, take it back. My wife's ip4 had the exact same thing and VZW replaced it without hesitation.

    Yeah, that is the plan...I may swing by the store this weekend but not sure they are going to be able to replace it at the moment with limited stock =\

    Weird thing is that it does turn black or darker colors, just won't do brings properly. Never seen that before. Oh well.

    That's _not_ a dead pixel. It's a stuck (on) pixel.

    Take it back & ask for help.
