    Thanks for the reply.

    Would like to clarify: did your previous Note5 had these spots on the rights side of the screen and did it only appear on the white backgrounds in the direct sunlight?

    And also is there any other source discussing this issue?

    I just confirmed that my Note 5 does not have this problem. I looked at it in direct cloudless sunlight near noon, with text on a white background. It's very legible and there are no visible artifacts. I tried both auto brightness and manual 100%, with no problem either way. I don't recall ever seeing such a problem on my Note 4 either.

    I have never seen such issues on other devices as well. I used HTC one M7, M8, Nokia Lumia 1520, Google Nexus 4, 5, 6, however none of them had the same issue.

    Recently I ran some display tests for Note 5, but no issues were found, no pixel defects identified, however these spots still appear under sunlight.

    You can find more reading, if you follow the URL found in post 14 of this thread. As for the issue on my phone, it was easily noticeable when outdoors on white screen backgrounds. For me, it was more of a dark chalky line on the right edge and top that looked as if some glue or adhesive had not been cleaned up, or had seeped out. It bugged me, even though I rarely used s-note outdoors. I further noticed I didn't have to be in direct sunlight, either. I could just sit in the car on a bright sunny day and the areas would actually be more visible in the non-direct sunlight. One more thing, if you don't use auto-brightness outdoors, you may not be able to see the areas, though on mine I could with the brightness settings all the way up.

    Seems the same for me. I Also checked it on indirect sunlight and the lines are visible. As explained at service desk it is a common problem for AMOLED displays. However when talking about premium phones, this issue should not exist.

    Seems that many Note 5s have this problem and many (like mine) do not. So it may be worth exchanging your phone if yours does have the defect.

    I get this, but only when wearing polarized sunglasses. That really messes with your screen, and your mind lol

    Can't see a thing in my note 5. I have had every note and this one makes me sick. iPhone is the same but you can push the button on old one and make it go chrome.
