scratch on lcd or under cover
I was cleaning my screen and afterwards shined a flashlight on it and seen what I thought was a small speck of dust under the screen. After closer inspection it actually looks like a scratch either on the underside of the lcd cover or on the lcd itself. It starts as a tiny speck and then a faint line goes from the speck to the side of the screen. It's at the bottom right near the menu button. I can't see it during normal use, or even in bright sunlight. Only when I use a flashlight.
I just got the phone set up exactly how I like it so I really don't want to exchange it for another. I guess I'll just keep the flashlight away from it
I also paid $9 for a 2 year plan that covers defects and accidents including drops and water damage so even if I go beyond the return period I'm still good.
Has anyone else ever had this issues and do you think it could lead to other problems?
I just looked at it from a different angle and verified that it is actually on the underside of the the screen cover, not the actual lcd. I can tell because at an angle, its actually above the icon underneath it. Better than being on the lcd itself!
