    What phone do you have? And was there a "little house" on the screen a lot, where this shadow is?

    Can you take a picture with a different camera to show us what you're seeing that isn't coming out in a screenshot?

    Welcome to Android Central! Here's how to post an image in the forums: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-central.html. You'll have to register, first.

    I believe ratsttam is suspecting that this may be a ghost image due to screen burn-in. Do you see it on all screens, or just certain screens?

    I wish I could see it more easily. Can you edit the shot and add a circle or arrow to show where it is? Or is it more visible on a different background?

    I changed color brightness, and it seemed to help a little

    I could just barely see it in your first screenshot, and now plainly in the second. It's surely a screen-burn image.

    To replace the screen, you mean? That would be expensive. Can you not live with it?

    Contact Samsung customer support for advice.

    You know, that doesn't look like any kind of icon, so I doubt it's screen burn-in. It looks more like an actual screen defect. The phone's warranty should still be valid (unless there has been some sort of accidental damage sustained at some point), so as belodion suggested, contact Samsung for warranty repair.

    Thanks a more magnified image that belodion sent me, I can now see more clearly what you're referring to (at first, I thought it was that screen smudge you were referring to). It still suggests some sort of screen burn-in, so no change in my recommendation.
