    Welcome to Android Central! Are you sure it isn't the proximity sensor? The proximity sensor (which is located right near the front-facing camera) uses an infrared beam that should be invisible to the naked eye, but can actually be seen using a camera's viewfinder. If you can see it with just your own eyes, then maybe the beam's calibration is off, and it's actually leaking a bit into the visible light spectrum.
