Light blotches on Helix screen

2014-06-03, 23:27 PM

I'm getting these areas on the screen that are permanent, around hte size of a dime, that are brighter than the rest of the screen. This is not bleeding, they're irregularly shaped but overall circular, and are scattered around the buttom middle area of the panel.


I had this happen on my old X201, and my HTC 8X Windows Phone (OLED). What's the deal with these? Is this the new norm for panels, to develop these defects later in life? This panel is but 1 year old and the Helix has been miticulously cared for.
