On the screen. WHy don't you take it to your local apple store and just see if they have a quick fix. Even if it is out of the warranty window, If they have a Quick fix I'm sure they would help.


Ps: I have like 3 dead pixels on my iPhone i just deal with it, The iphone has very high resolution due to the million of pixels so that helps right.

Let me know how things go.
