    I get the same blemish towards the top of my Lumia 1020 when camera is turned on in darkness... Should I go to my Nokia Care Centre to have an exchange?

    I have that on my 1020 as well...and I'd say "blob" is a good term. For a little bit I thought there was something wrong with my eyes.

    I only see it on glance screen and not during normal usage...so it doesn't bother me at all.

    This is my first post, so I take one line to greet everyone.
    I have the same issue on my phone (the black stripes are alot, it seems like a sort of painting, as someone has shown in photos). The fact that I can see is that on the stripes I have almost perfet black: in the other zones of the screen, in the dark, the screen is all but black (It seems no more that an LCD, with better performance). To make a comparison, the 820 of my girlfriend is darker, brighter and with better white and view angle too.
    It is normal for an amoled screen to be not so black in dark? (should be the screen all black as it is for the black stripes?)

    I have had 3 Nokia Lumia 1020s all in 1 week (all different faults) I can also confirm that every one I had also had this small black blob or bloch near top left part of screen when viewing black background on phone in the dark. My current Nokia 1020 also has this plus a round doughnut black blob in centre of screen. I think they all have it, a manufacturing process. It does not bother me as hardly notice ii 99% of the time.

    Do not need to send it, it is normal. Current super amoled screens have it due to manufacturing process. This problem was reported on nexus 5 and some other new phones with amoled. Black is also no so deep like on the galaxy s or s2, we get now higher resolution, better performance in direct sunlight and lower power consumption..

    All phones have tiny imperfections. My phone has it as well, only notice it in on the glance screen when my room is totally dark. Now if you had a bright green stuck pixel or something truly distracting, I'd empathize with you more. It's a common imperfection for AMOLED displays, so try not to focus on it.

    This is a first world problem. But you do have the right to exchange it if you really want to, just remember those that exchange phones need more customer support and hence raise costs for everyone.

    me too have the same thing that its quite annoying whenever my lumia 1020 is at glance mode at night. i have noticed it for the first time i turned it on and a bit nervous that it could be possibly be a burned led. the colors are not affected though but its still giving me worries of thinking that one day my screen would just turn black all out. so any comments about this thing so far?

    It could just be me being less scrupulous, but mine seemed to have mostly faded away as I've used the phone over time.

    Mine has it too, but it's kind of hard to notice even when you're on the right angle and doesn't make a difference with photos, so I don't really mind.
