Default screen dying?

Anyone else notice yellowish spots around the edge or corners of the display when its at a black screen? I know my last spec had it real bad. And this one is just slightly showing..

This is my 4th spectrum. Should I just live with it? Or get them to send me a 5th phone

I purchased sectrum in March and after week later screen goes black. I can't see on phone but I can see the Homescreen on HDTV via MHL. I replaced phone one time since March without problem.

One day I found my original palm pre was still working, several years after id moved on. If the spectrum doesn't work it had to be the owners fault?

Comments intended to show phones are phones and stuff happens :-) that's what insurance is for and warranties are for. I don't think people design to harm their devices to experience service problems and customer service problems.

first spec... wouldnt make calls or send texts.. but data worked perfect. stock and on bo... second spec... wouldnt stay alive longer than 5 hours on any rom avaliable with only using facebook music and occasional web browsing... this is my 4th android device so i know how to save battery.. nothing helped... third spec had horrible yellowing around the edge of the screen... 4th has slight yellowing around the screen...

i see no reason for verizon to be constantly sending me phones with problems.. my dads.. has no issues other than random reboots.. plus he gets about 12 hour battery life on stock with the plague kernel...

my samsung fascinate has never gave me any problems(once it got to ics)

you must have been one of the lucky ones to get a solid built phone

The only problem mine had was me soft bricking it due to leak. Replacement also no problems, they all have random rebooted for me with anything but stock.

The good thing with the spectrum, is that there are so many weird oasis you can do anything non physically damaging and there is no way to tell what caused it.
