Default New note 10.1 pixel permanently lit

Hi.

Just noticed that there's a permanent lit (white) pixel showing dead centre of my screen. Fair enough, it only shows on dark areas but is it unreasonable to expect the screen to be perfect?

I had a galaxy 10.1 previously, well two actually, but had to return them both because they each had two or more dead pixels. Now this.

What would you do? I'm still well within the return timescale but would the replacement be any better?

Thanks.

I would return it. I hate dead pixels and I won't stand for it. I am sorry that you have had this happen to you so often. I oh and when you go back to exchange it ask them to let you open the new note there and make sure that the new one is good.

Thanks.

It's maybe a good idea to check it there and then but you can really only spot these little blighters after a while, or when using one of those screen checkers/fixers.

I'm in two minds. Past experience suggests that screens aren't that good or am I really picky?

What do other people find?

Replace it and see what happens.
