    Does anyone know why I get this? Its on every device in the house

    It makes weird blue dots caused by sunlight and artificial lighting, side angles of sunlight sometimes give off a rainbow effect, it also causes white little dots that float around like snow. Its happening to my tablet, smartTV and two mobiles, the tablet has antivirus which shows no infection. I read people with iphone 13 or 14 have the same issue but only when taking pictures, not when watching smartTV

    Appears to be normal effects of facing a light source when taking a picture.

    I don't actually see an actual 'display glitch' issue in those photos you posted. Glare is a common issue with photography.
    Try repositioning your angle of view before taking a photo, to avoid that light reflection issue. Or if you want a more involved solution, look into getting something like a polarizing filter:
    Of course keeping a filter and its holder handy kind of negates the portability aspect of a smartphone, plus most of them require additional setup time and often need to be using some kind of kluge to hold them in place (which might be more of a problem depending on if you have or what kind of phone case you have.)

    Your pictures have lens flare. It's definitely not a glitch.

    To avoid it, basically don't take pics directly into the sun, or other bright lights....which is a tip from photography 101.

    FYI lens flare is sometimes used deliberately in movies and TV shows...

    ...where it's often unnecessary and can be very distracting.... :thumbsdowndroid:
