    Hi. I noticed today that on all screens, I have a strange pattern on the bottom of the screen. It also seems to have altered the lighting somewhat, looking like an Instagram filter or something.

    Can't find anything in settings. Any help appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Is there anyway you can provide a screenshot? Did this just start? Any apps you loaded recently?

    I took a screenshot but can't work out how to upload it. No new apps installed. It looks like a vintage type of filter mainly at the bottom of the screen. It also is in a patch (a bit lighter) in the middle of the screen. Kind of looks like paint brush marks in the filter...

    It's not the screen protector either. Lol

    Try the three button menu. That should allow you to attach a photo.

    Are you on the AC website on your computer? If so, upload your screenshot from your phone to Google Drive (or any other cloud drive). Then download the screenshot from that cloud to your computer. When editing a post on the AC website, click on the Attach Image icon (the one that looks like a picture of a tree, right next to the globe icons, in the editing ribbon), and select the screenshot to attach.

    If you're using the Android Central app, tap the paper clip icon at the top of the screen when you're creating a post.

    Image attached. It must be a hardware thing, as taking a screenshot gave me a nice clear pic on my computer. This pic was taken with a tablet, and shows the screen, with a picture of a wall to demonstrate the extent of the markings. It's actually getting darker and covering more of the screen now...

    My guess is a bad display connection or more likely a display nearing the end of its life. Did you drop the phone or anything like that?

    It looks like it has been damaged. Especially if you can't see it in the screenshot, that means that the screen is broken.
    I'd say your phone is dying and you need a new one - or change the screen, but I'd guess getting a new one is affordable.
