Samsung Galaxy S III Smartphone Screen Bleeding

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Aug 02, 2012 12:37 pm

I'm had the Samsung Galaxy S III since it came out and just today noticed that my screen has bleeding happening in four locations. The bottom corners are both bleeding and then about 1.5" up on both sides.

You can take a screen shot to show this since it is the Super AMOLED panel causing the issue. I've contacted my Samsung PR representatives, but am curious if this is happening to anyone else. This phone is too new to be having issues like this.

The pictures below are taken with a white background (blank.org) and cropped down. It might be hard to see, but it is very obvious in person.

I got a new phone from Samsung yesterday and it looks like it is working right still on day two. The new Samsung Galaxy S III Smartphone has no color bleeding around the lower edges of the Super AMOLED Display, so I'm going to cross my fingers that this new one lasts more than two months.

The only negative so far is that the new phone is white...

I'm personally not a fan of white phones.

The "Bleeding" is easy enough to see.

But as you said a phone that new shouldn't be doing things like that.

And I have to say that as a faithful Samsung user I don't get any issues with phones for about a year. Then when I do have issues it's more to do with the amout of battering the phone gets.

I've lost count of how many times I have dropped my phone and (except the camera for some reason(not auto focusing)) it still works fine.
