My fear, and the reason that i write to you, is that Apple released the better LCD screens first, and now switched to a much lower quality.

I know for a fact that the screens are from different manufacturers.

If i put my phone in Field Test Mode ( by calling *3001#12345#* from the iPhone) i get two different LCD panel IDs:

mine (the problematic one) : 7455232
my girfriend's (nice and sharp) :5755136


Good news for early adopters!:cool:

I have the Nice and sharp model. I can't see what he's talking about so I'm guessing because I got the nice LCD. Check out your LCD IDs and Leave Feedback if you got any problems with it.

Heres a Picture of the 745 Model with the Grid white spots.Turn your Brightness all the way up in a dark Room to see a difference.

The 57 screen and its sharp and beautiful. All videos look simply amazing on this LCD screen. I'm curious to see what the other screen looks like. Oh and by the way I am posting this from my iPhone which has the better LCD screen :)

WHEW. mine didn't have any dots at all!. i LOVE IT.
i just check it right now in a dark room with highest light setting. didn't see a thing


but however.. i see a dead pixel :mad::mad::mad::mad:

i don't know if it is a deal pixel or a really small sand stuck between my iPhone screen and the static clinger protector.

uh oh you spoke too soon! having hundreds of barely visible white dots are better than having a dead pixel.. a dead pixel is an eye sore.. my brightness is set at 10% so I can't see any dots.. plus my battery lasts forever

I thought I didn't have white dots, but it was because my brightness is set to 15-20%.

=], doesn't bother me one bit!

that's right Britna! it doesn't matter to me because it's not like I put my face right against the screen.. I look at my iPhone from a foot away so all I see is a clear beautiful screen..

yes glad to hear it doesn't bother you. I think the biggest complain is when watching a movie on it and has a lot of dark parts.

I never noticed the dots because I keep my brightness at 10% to save my battery... a dark black screen looks completely black with my brightness setting

this guy on howardforums who wrote that is really anal.. if you read the article, he returned his iPhone 5 times... it's his OPINION that the 755-- LCD model has a lower quality... to me, my iPhone has a clear and sharp display
yes I guess so, So far I got no complains with my iPhone and its perfect for me. I guess after spending 600 dollars on a phone you want it to be perfect. But if the grid isn't visible and doesn't bother you then this shouldn't be a big problem, although I'm sure some will be unhappy if they find this on their iPhone.

yeah, I always watch tv shows/movies on mine and never notice bad quality. Hell, "300" looks amazing on this.

My brightness is set to about 15-20% to save battery and i tried setting it back to te default but it hurt my eyes!

I recommend if those white dots really DO bug you, then just turn down your brightness setting.

Just my 2 cents.

yes I think this is gonna do more damage then good to the unaware iPhone owner, I'm going to go see my friend tomorrow and compare mines with him to see if there's much of a difference. He got his a week after it came out so he probably have the 7 model.

yes the iPhone seconds as a flash light when you set the Brightness to max.
Comes quite handy sometimes.
