How common are dead pixels

I am Just trying to get an online idea of how many people ever get dead pixels. I believe they are more common than people think it's just most people either don't care or notice them to late to send the device back to the shop. I have purchased a Sony tablet which had a dead pixel (the original and replacement). My friends hp laptop also had one. A TV in 2008 I had also had one

What about you guys

Re: How common are dead pixels

Welcome to Android Central! I've only ever had a dead pixel on an old Acer laptop from about maybe 2007. But otherwise, haven't seen it on any other device, TV or monitor that I've had (and I've had 9 smartphones, 6 tablets, and maybe 6 or 7 laptops).

Do you look for them on a new device? I was wondering maybe people didn't notice them as much these days because of display density

I wouldn't say that I look for them with a magnifying glass or anything. But I'm sensitive enough to details that I'd notice a dead pixel. Higher display density is an interesting issue, though--I'm actually not sure what a single dead pixel on a QHD or 4K screen would look like.
