    Hi all, I just rec'd an ebay Note Pro 12.2 I noticed it has a squishy spot on the screen, roughly where someone probably held it with their thumb while in portrait. It shows as lighter on white screens and darker on blue. When I run my fingernail over it, it acts like a softer LCD, with "ripples". The rest of the screen is glassy, just this one spot seems soft.

    Any idea what the life expectancy might be with this spot? Wondering if I should return it or live with it, its not really in the way, but if its a sign of worse things to come, maybe I should?

    Also, if I'm reading things right, their should be an OTA to 5.1.1 from AT&T? When I added it to my account today, it got an update to 4.4.2, ancient tech already, and I just read it needs that update to get the 5.1.1. Whats the timeframe I should wait for an OTA to be pushed? Or do you think I'll be able to get it once my "check again in 24 hours" time has passed?
