    so I just noticed that under certain lighting my Nexus 4 shows these dots all over the screen that are all aligned vertically and horizontally. I can see these are even if the screen is off but only under certain lighting. I am assuming this is normal and because of the screen technology? Anyone else notice this?

    I noticed this last night. I put in on the stand beside the bed and under the light, I could see these dots. i did a double take because I thought there was something on the screen, I hate dirty screens.

    "Non-Conductive Separator Dots" perhaps?

    As far as I know, all multi-touch capable screens have them, some may be more obvious than others though.

    Not sure if this has to do with anything but Nexus's pixels are put unique or something
    it has a linear pattern and has dots in the middle of the linear but this may just effect color and not seeing the screen dots.

    Mine doesn't have dots but if you look at it turned off from the right angle you can see an array of little rectangles all over the screen.

    That's the uniqueness of the Nexus 4 screen. Forgot the name of it but that's what happens at different angles I'm pretty sure
