White swirls/bubbles on my brand new 6 Plus disply.

I just got home and setup my new Space Gray iPhone 6 Plus AT&T. Been playing around with it and noticed some weird light spots when dialing out on my phone.

I have downloaded a pixel testing application from app store and everything looks fine. I can't get the white swirls to show up on any other screen other than when the phone is dialing out. I don't know why it's only showing up on this screen.

Can anyone else check their iPhone 6 Plus and see if it's doing the same thing? I have never noticed this on any of my phones and it's annoying me.

Thinking about heading back to the Apple store and returning it. They probably won't have another one in stock so may be screwing myself but I did just pay a lot of money for the device. Would like to make sure it's 100% good.

I have attached a picture so you can see what I'm dealing with.

That's the blurred Milky Way / Mountain photo in the background.
Nothing wrong with the screen.

Think about it for a moment. If it was a physical defect of the LCD, why would it show up on a screenshot?

Yup, I can create the same swirls. It's a burring effect that iOS8 does to your background when using the phone. If you change your home screen wallpaper to something else and make that call again, you'll see that you'll get a whole different set of "swirls."

LOL thx for another laugh like that guy not realizing his camera was causing his iphone not to lay flat on it's back! It's definitely the blurred wallpaper! Some of these screens that pop up like the notification pull up and pull down have that glass partial see through effect like Windows Aero.

Thanks for pointing that out to me about the blurring. Had no idea and was bugging out lol. Changed my wallpaper and now it's good!

Oh. My. God.

I couldn't imagine working in the Apple store having somebody like this coming in and complaining about the "swirls and bubbles" on their display, thinking it's a defect. He actually wanted to return the phone because of this "issue"!

LOL at the guy that says "period", as if that makes his statement the definitive be-all end-all.

wrong, period. It's ios applying a blur effect to the background as an aesthetic.

Look, i can change the background and get different "swirls."
Correct.

no! I was right. The phone app is not properly optimized for the new screens. Fact.
Incorrect.

It's just how it is, sometimes. :)

I would blow my brains out if I worked with Apple and had to deal with stupid comments like this.
