This sucks. What's worse is I just sold my Note 8 so I'm gonna be without a phone while this gets fixed/replaced.

I cant see the image through the app but wow that's not good news. How quick are they handling this?

I had to sell mynote 8 too. Wish I could've kept it

You should be able to do a warranty replacement and typically they send you the new device first then you send back the defective one so you won't be without a device.

Yes, although you have to let them put a hold on your credit card so they can charge you for the new phone if you don't send back the old one.

If you bought your phone from a carrier or major store such as Best Buy, you should be able to do an immediate in-store exchange for the defective phone (as long as you're within the initial exchange window, 14 days or whatever).

That's not a dead, but stuck pixel. Every once in a while, a stuck pixel can be fixed through various methods if you want to do some research.

I had 2 s8+ with dead pixels. Verizon sent me a replacement within 2 days and you just ship your old one back. Phone only.
