    For anyone curious , it would be very lucky to have one with out this. It comes from binding the OLED to the digitizer/Glass.

    The Playstation Vita suffered from it, as do most OLED. It's just down to how it's manufactured.

    So I wonder am I the only one has the issue or found it.

    I just found this when I am on bed all lights turned off and switch on the camera and saw there are two black objects on the screen and worried there is a fault, and do the same test with 925 I have. It shows the black object too. So I think every phone has this issue.

    And also it is hard to
    notice .

    I used to have the exact same problem with the Lumia 800.

    See my original thread here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...nvenience.html

    It seems to be related to the OLED panels Nokia uses...

    Yes. I just posted this in the problems and defects thread.

    I wrote:I'm noticing black lines and spots on this AMOLED screen with a dark background. Take a look at the screen against a gray or dark picture. This is stuff that I encountered on the Galaxy S2 but Samsung seemed to fix on the S3 going forward. Wonder where Nokia is getting these screens because its not the best quality.

    Certainly not the best AMOLED panels that Nokia is using.
    I had similar things on my N8, but it never really bothered me cos you sorta had to look for them to see them :P

    I just noticed now that I have this issue to. I have a big blob at the upper left hand corner of my screen. It is also not a deal breaker for me as it is but I just wanted to make sure. For those who've had experience with such defects before, does it worsen? Or this is pretty much it? I am on my 9th day so I wont be able to have this unit replaced anyway..

    I had this with my first 1020. Looking at a black screen in an unlit room, the screen looked dark brown, there were a couple of blobs and lines showing in black. The wobbly lines almost looked like someone had drawn them behind the screen with one of those paint type apps (if that makes any sense!). It wasn't hugely noticeable, but I'd paid a lot for the phone and wanted it to be right.
    Phones 4 U were good and exchanged the phone without quibbling. I'm glad I returned it, the screen is different on the replacement, jet black when viewed at night.

    It's not a Problem, it's normal for AMOLED.

    Hi everyone..

    i also facing same problem and this is answered from nokia service center regarding this matters.

    Thank you for your continued conversations with us.
    We understand that you are curious about the spot that is showing on the screen of your Nokia Lumia 1020. In response to your concern, kindly be informed that the so called black shadows are an AMOLED characteristic that we cannot fix. It is related to the electronics (TFT) inside the panel which is causing uneven dark states in the pixels.

    There are differences from panel to panel and in some cases black shadows are more noticeable only in totally dark environment.

    We hope for your kind understanding regarding this matter..

    You have it too, but you are not looking . You must put an a gray wallpaper and put a 100% brightness and you will see lines in your screen like a fabric

    I don't think the lines ( like fabric) are the same problem. I thought the Amoled issue is more blobs and trails that show up when you're looking at a black screen in an unlit room. My replacement phone no longer has that issue, so it does vary from phone to phone.

    My 1020 has these. They aren't big, but still are noticeable on completely black screens in the dark. Bugs me a bit, but my understanding is that this is unfortunately a very common thing that occurs on Amoled display. Although it's not impossible to get perfect screens without them, from what I've read across the net you're lucky if you get a perfect screen.

    My 1020 also has few them dark splodges towards very top its easily noticable at night in dark if cover the glance clock ,my 925 however is perfect or my eyes rubbish,
    i have a nokia 700 zeta thats also showing some dark structure in places at night when cover the lockscreen clock ,myself i also just thought it was due to manufacture the displays and digitizers in being bonded together as one unit.

    I have these too on my new 1020.
    Thought it was factory defect, good thing I found this thread.
    So, no need for warranty replacement or ?

    Here are my pics:

    I've noticed this on my 1020. I have a slight 'blemish' in the top corner that shows when the phone is booting but it's not a problem as it doesn't affect my usage of the phone.

    I can confirm Nokia will replace your screen assembly affected by the Mura effect. I had mine changed out after shipping it to them 😊
