Android Central Question

Hi! One night, my phone appeared to have small black lines on its screen, it's very tiny so i didn't put too much attention of it. The same night, I charged it, it's okay and the screen is perfectly fine aside from those lines. When I woke up, the screen has 2 big black thing on the upper left side, like it speads and the two combimed and become 1 circle of black thing (I don't know how to call it, it's like a black hole in my screen) after a few hours, It separated again and become 2 black thing and my whole screen became cloudy, sometimes pinkish, sometimes, greenish. After a day, It already have weird lines on its side with different colors like green, blue, red, and black and I'm afraid because it's spreading also. My screen is working fine tho, even on those black spots, it still works. what do you think happened? and what should I do?

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone, and how old is it? Any recent drops or water exposure? Does it still look that way in Safe Mode? If it still does, then the display is likely failing. It's important to make sure all of your important data is backed up or synced somewhere NOW in case the screen completely fails.

Yeah, B.Diddy is right, it sounds like your screen is dying.

It's a bit weird seeing you say your screen is "perfectly fine" aside from the issues... it's like saying the Hindenberg was perfectly fine aside from all the fire...

See how hip and relevant my references are? I'm so with it!

You'll need to take your phone to a repair shop to get an estimate. Depending on the age of the device and the cost of the repair, you'll need to decide whether to get it repaired or to get a new phone.
