    Default Visible Digitizer Issue

    I've had my g3 for about 3 weeks now and have noticed some build quality issues, one of them being an extremely visible digitizer which distracts from viewing anything that has a white background. Extremely annoying. Does anyone have this issue also? Is it worth replacing the device for?

    Definitely something that's hard to pick up in pictures but it looks like a very mild form of this picture: http://forums.macrumors.com/attachme...5&d=1386913277

    Luckily, I've never had a phone do that. However, if I were you, I'd take it in to have it looked at. It's still under warranty.

    i doubt its worth replacing. On my G2 I could see the metallic grid mainly when outside and at angle. Most of the time straight on it's not noticeable.
    I havent seen it on my G3. Who knows, could be some parts of the screen are sourced elsewhere and slight difference.

    Would anyone know if this is covered under warranty. Too much of a hassle to return it now since I'm out of the country but maybe down the line I can ask for a screen replacement? Although I do feel like mine is an early production unit since it has other noticeable problems like an extremely flimsy back cover and some spontaneous shutting off.

    A visible digitizer is something that bugs the hell out of me. My old G2 had a very visible one, as did my Z2.
    It is something that I always look for on new devices. That being said, mine is not visible in the slightest... Even in direct sunlight.

    Not sure if its covered by there warranty. But if u bought it from a store u should have a certain amount of days to return it.

    I am not sure if this is a digitizer issue or heat issue but I have noticed when I use my phone a lot in one sitting I get a yellow discoloration in spots on the screen especially around the home button and then if I set it down and come back to it it is gone. Is this an issue worth returning? It bugs the crud out of me.
