    I have a Galaxy s3 and my screen initially began to turn purple in the top right corner. As days went by, it has not faded more to the point where three fourths of the screen is a dark purple and almost black. The further down you go on the screen, the lighter the color becomes. When reading text messages, I can only see the bottom of the screen clearly as the remaining upper portion is almost unreadable. I haven't dropped on the ground/floor nor have I dropped it in water. This problem seemed to come out of the blue. Can you help? I read in a previous post that a reset might be the solution for them but is that the only solution for me? And if so, how do I know if my information is backed up and will be saved? I am a bit technologically ignorant o I am really afraid to do anything with it at all.

    Welcome to Android Central! The screen is failing. You will likely have to get it replaced--sorry!
