    I picked up my droid yesterday and didn't notice this until now. If I look very closely at my screen, I can see very very faint white horizontal lines spaced about half an inch apart that go from the top of the screen to the bottom. It's more noticeable when looking at a white page, such as the browser.

    Anyone else notice this? Should I return my Droid for another?

    I don't see them on mine. Just how faint are these lines?

    They're very faint, they don't move and it looks like it's part of the actual screen and not related to the software.

    sounds like you have a bad screen tbh. I would def look into taking it back to verizon/bestbuy/where ever you bought it from.

    I would have them take out a new phone and compare the two...if the new one doesn't have the lines just swap em out.

    Nothing like that here either. Perhaps you should take it into the the store and have it replaced?

    I took it back just now and it definitely was a faulty screen. Best Buy replaced it in 5 min and everything is okay now!
