    Maybe through the speaker holes at the top, blow some canned air in there and maybe you can move it off to the side where you cannot see it. or there is a tear down video out there I am sure to take it apart

    Probably squeezed in through the speakers. What are you gonna do about the ant? I would be very annoyed seeing a dead ant every time I look at my screen

    Oh man! That is like the suckiest, worst thing possible. However I laughed pretty freaking hard. I am so sorry for the misfortune. That puts a dead pixel to shame. Update us on whether or not you are able to remove the baggard.

    Pssh dead pixel, thats a dead ant. Did you get blacktie from best buy. Should be able to tag it out if you can't get the ant out.
    I'd bet Cory's Right Arm on that!

    If that is the case, funniest. Warranty. Claim. Evar.

    Not so much for you, but for the guy who has to fix it. Did you try the air?

    that is the funniest thing. I do feel for you and would be freaking upset as your but still funny to see. I hope you get it fix and ask for the ant to frame it. or not. Ants can squeeze through the smallest of places to look for food. Good Luck.

    I wonder if there is a way it could have come in via the 3.5mm jack at the top?

    Before you fix it, could you take more pictures and post any that show the ant really well? Maybe it's my screen but I really can't see it, just a speck that's probably it. Also, try posting a video and explanation on YouTube. I can imagine the tech community would love to see it too! While I appreciate your side of it, and certainly sympathize, you have to admit it's also hysterically funny!

    yeah looks like there is a slot inside the 3.5mm jack that would allow access. I took a picture on my nexus and will try to upload it.

    Bad picture but best I could do. The reflection from inside actually helps to locate it.

    Guys, its is a flaw in the design with a tiny hole. I have one crawled in mine this morning and when it couldn't make its way out for 3 hrs, it died. I also see a dead pixel now.. This sucks. I don't know Samsung here would do something about it. It is so embarrassing to see an insects in your device but you not being able to remove. Moreover, makes me look an ***** having the urge to remove it like a dust particle everytime but it is behind the glass.. Argh.

    Most likely through the audio jack. They are usually not... "closed", so to speak. I definitely a bummer. I hope they exchange it for you.

    I think this will suffice as a warranty situation.

    Samsung might cover it under warranty since it is a bug.

    This is verryyyy true. Thx for that info, I learned the hard way with a TV.

    Careful with that, too. "Real", but inexpensive air compressors generally do not have a filter/drier in the air line, so they will often blow some moisture out along with the air. And "real", serious, air compressors usually have a lubricator for the compressor motor that can blow a little oil residue out along with the air.
