    They slap glue on the oleds to bond it to the "material" and it is common. I had two nexus phones and at low brightness you get bands or splotches. Yay google super plastics 5mp phone. Sorry I am mad, but I spent hours and money trying to get happy with the galaxy. As far as phones go, the galaxy nexus is the worst google phone ever released......

    You obviously never owned the nexus one if you think that...

    Yes, I have two horizontal black lines near the top of the display (Potrait). On dark screens they appear like a rainbow. I think they're two rows of stuck pixels. I took a screen capture and they don't show so, I think it's a screen issue for sure. I'm going to call Google tonight to ask for a replacement.

    I experience this too with many black lines, they come and go, some days they are alot more visible than others. I took a screen shot. then viewed it horizontally in my gallery and the lines were on the right going vertical so I assume its the display or gpu. unfortunately my phone is 3 years old (its an old gs2 if you're wondering) any recommendations on how to solve this?
