Just curious on your guys input. I bought an iPhone 4 32GB a week ago and everything works good on it. The only issue I've noticed is a bit of light bleed on the upper sides (right side a little worse than the left) and it has a semi reflective speck of something ubder the screen just to the right and above center when held up right.The light bleed doesn't bother me too much, it's the speck I'm more concerned about. It's really only noticeable it a well lit area or outside. I'm hesitant to try an exchange because I've had issues before where the new one had other problems or was worse than the one I traded in. I still have some time to decide if it bothers me that much, just curious what some of you would do.

Dell, Windows 7, iPhone 4

    Only you can decide since everyone's sensitivities are different. If it bothers you, take it in to Apple and see if they'll exchange it. The chances of you getting a 'good one' are extremely high. That being said, if you get a replacement, check it out thoroughly before you leave the store.

    The blotches may be the result of a damaged LCD unit or if it's the "Yellow Spot" conundrum, then it would go away eventually or visit an Apple/Carrier store for assistance.

    --------------------------------

    The 'Semi Reflective Speck' if it's dust under the screen is normal and not usually noticeable if it happens except when UV light (sunlight) hits the screen, then it'll show up.

    "The 'Semi Reflective Speck' if it's dust under the screen is normal and not usually noticeable if it happens except when UV light (sunlight) hits the screen, then it'll show up."

    Thats pretty much what it looks like. I speck of dust trapped in there.
