yeah have them replace that, not normal nor acceptable for a $500 or $600 investment
I already tried that also... to have it exchanged. Unfortunately, with these types of devices it is common and most iPhones seem to have this issue somewhere around the edges of the screen. I only see mine in a mostly dark area a few millimeters wide on the side. Nonetheless, they wouldn't exchange it because, "All of them seem to be like that," according to a "Genius" at Towson Town Center in Towson, MD.
