    Guys,
    Need some inputs here.

    I've tried 3 different phones. The first one had the famous yellow tint issue which was down to a minimum in the next 2 devices that i tried so I guess it all depends on luck. But as luck would have it or OCD :-), I had new issues with them.

    Both the replacement devices that I have tried so far have these 2 issues below:

    1. Weird horizontal bands visible across the screen on light backgrounds (white/grey) most prominent on low brightness. They really annoy you when scrolling through your Twitter feed or any apps with a white background (Most on Lollipop!)
    Best way to check these are in the default android dialogs of WiFi password or language choice.

    2. I see static lines horizontal lines on the screen everytime the screen is touched and they disappear after 2 seconds of the touch. Again easiest way to check this would be to open the gallery and pull in the hamburger menu from the left. When touched to pull, mine shows prominent static/disturbance sort of ripples.

    Can you guys check and tell me if these are common issues since both my replacement devices have had these & I am really not upto trying another replacement device after all the hassle.

    Thanks.

    I can see the horizontal lines in the gallery app for about half a second after pulling in the menu from the left side of the screen. They are barely visible though.

    Rhodopsin? Photobleaching? Limitations with the human eye?

    Meh, I see them too. I've seen them on other phones, but they are a far cry from being an actual problem. Barely noticeable to me.

    So both the problems are common?

    You mean the lines in the 2nd problem?

    Are you trying a replacement or have you compared your device with any other?

    I returned mine for screen issues. Great phone otherwise. Maybe I'll buy again if there is a black Friday sale but didn't want to exchange and just have the same problems.

    I have not tried a replacement. I'm considering it tho. Just worried I may get another of the same, maybe one that's even worse.
