Hi all, I just picked up my iphone 5 from Telstra (Australia) and noticed one dead pixel located left-middle of the screen. While it isn't instantly obvious, it shows up on white backgrounds and you'll probably have to hunt a little to pick it up. Would I be able to exchange my phone for a new one or is this problem too insignificant?


Addtionally, I work in a research laboratory and used a microscope to image the actual pixels on the screen and this is what i saw. Very obvious here. photo.JPG

iPhone 5, iOS 6
