    Default Found a dead pixel. Worth exchanging for a new one?

    Hi, I've had my Galaxy S3 since launch and I noticed about two days ago that there is a dead pixel near the middle of the screen. It's been bothering me since then and I was wondering if it was worth exchanging for a new one. The reason why is because I'm afraid that more dead pixels might pop up during the course of the phone's usage. Also, if there is a way to fix it that would be appreciated as well.

    I would go ahead and exchange it. It may be a little inconvienient now but it isn't worth dealing with more dead pixels later on down the road.

    Here are some resources on fixing dead pixels, but I don't know if they will work on a SGS3 or not.
