    You have to go to field test mode by entering *3001#12345#* and go to Versions, there you will see an LCD Panel ID.

    I don't know who makes the two LCD panels, but one starts with a 7 and one with a 5.

    Mine is, 7455232.

    List yours and vote on which you have.

    I had a version 5 panel and found it to be way more crisp and even before I had to exchange out my iPhone.

    7 series have the dots. My loaner will be here tomorrow, and I ship my 7 series out tomorrow as well, once I restore it to hide the hack I did. :p

    You can find pics and a video of the white dots in the troubleshooting section. Theres a huge thread about it.

    Nice poll!

    I think I'll wait a few weeks to exchange my 7-series for a new iPhone (mostly because I'm irked that I'll have to pay $30 to stay connected), but the dots are pretty annoying when you're trying to watch a movie. I hear the black level on the 5-series screens seems to be better as well, so...

    I bought my phone on launch day, it's a 7, and it does have a faint grid of dots that show up on blacks.

    Is Apple replacing iPhones with the checkered pattern without much hassle? Mine seems to have it as well.

    I have the checkered screen, and I have a 7 series...

    Does anyone have a 7, and not have the checkered screen?

    I think some of you are looking to closely. I have a 7 and I see the pattern you are talking about but only when my face is 6 inches from the screen. Im not sure why apple is replacing this.

    For people wondering how different the 5* and 7* screens are (the 5* is the one on the right):

    This image is not mine, it was posted on the other checkerboard thread.

    Only difference I see from that pic is that the 5* is a bit brighter... I would like to see what these dots and checkerboard problems look like...
