    So. I finally got around to changing my LCD but there seems to be an issue with my glance screen now.

    Before I get into it, I am not sure if something is wrong witht he LCD or if it came with a screen protector on it already. The "issue" i have with the screen is that there are rows and coloums of these "Dots" on the screen. It's really not very visible but I can see it. I could have seen it before I installed the screen. There are also these faint boxes on the edge of the screen which line up with these dots. The texture of the screen also feels different from my old one. This has me to believe the new screen came with a screen protector on it, but for the life of me, I CANNOT find the edge to pull it off. It is more easily noticeable when the theme is white, but i have to bring the phone close to my eyes to see.

    Also, sometimes depending on the angle the light hits the screen, i can see it.

    Has any one had a similar experience? I have never used a screen protector on a phone so I don't know what it feels like lol.

    The, back, home and search button are also more dimly light (looks almost defective). Or , it could be the plastic that's covering it which makes it looks so. Even these buttons feel so different. They don't vibrate as much as they used to when you touch them.

    I'll upload a short video of what is happenign with my glance screen. When I first changed the screen (last night) it was fine. About half hour after, the problem happen. I tried a combination of various settins on and off, different themes, night mode etc, it was all the same. I took glance off over night and put it back on this morning. It was fine when I left home. By the time I got to work, 2 hours later, it started happening again, but no where near as bad as it was yesterday.

    Note. it only happens on the glance screen. Which believes me to think nothing is wrong with the LCD. But then those stupid dots are questionable. I don't know if it's something on the screen :(

    Vid here of glance screen.

    Don't change screen because of just glance. The original screen is the best.

    well, sounds like you got a "conterfeited" screen/digitizer. I admit that "counterfeit" might be too heavy of a word since they still works, but I believe those little dots you were talking about are tiny junctions of the sensing capacitors from the digitizer. and the faint boxes on the edge might suggest a bad alignment between digitizer and screen. Screen might be good though.

    some people including me , have the same problem with glance:
    Glance Screen Problem after Amber update



    i'm 90% sure that it's the heat that makes this happen.....when the problem appears put the device in a cold place for 5 minute and glance will be fine!

    Interesting.

    Will it last?

    IMO if you see those dots now you'll see those forever. I could be totally wrong though.

    I meant if the LCD will last or if it will eventually go bad
