    I ordered two phones and got them both on launch day. One is a 64GB and the other 16GB. both display the glitches in the display, especially on the password entry keyboard (see image). not saying it is, but it looks a little like interference or something as it moves along the screen. the green glow on mine is now worse than it was and also when i phone on a call the ear speaker sounds like it's constantly stuck in loud speaker mode, but really quiet. I also still have the camera flash issue. Basically this phone is riddled with issues and I can't get an iphone appointment with a genius for over a week here in London.

    The keyboard glitch has been confirmed by Apple to be a software problem, and an updated version of iOS is already being tested, and should be available soon.

     

    If the green glow "problem" is related to that, you may find it goes away on its own soon.

    ahh, ok. thanks, i missed that. i am now also having a new problem in that the sensor that detects the phone is at my face seems to stop working and the phone will mute or turn on the speaker while i'm holding it to my face. time to swap this handset i think...

    Same problem for me, green glow at the bottom, spreading to the left & right sides.

    The glow's gone with 6.0.1. In my case. What about you?

    I haven't updated yet, but if that is really the case then it's good news.

    Mine's glowing then, too, but that's way beyond "normal usage", isn't it. I mean, before

    the update wiping the unlock slide normally with one finger would make it glow, an that's

    not the case anymore.

    same here.... it's still there...  the palm swipe brings it out just the same as before - especially if the phone is warm AND has been asleep.

    I never knew iPhone 5 was being used by Planet of the Apes too.

     

    Whe uses their palm other than advanced chimpanzees.

     

    Surely normal one finger swipe shud suffice and the green glow is no biggie.

     

    Those with Palm swipe issues shud try try turning your phones the other way upside down then palm swipe problem solved.

    don't be such a muppet, it's just a way to reproduce the green glow / bleed.

    You're right. It's not completely gone.

    But that the update made it bettet proves

    it's a software issue, right?

    So let's wait for 6.1...

    I've got the green glow around the bottom of the screen every time I turn it on. it glows from the bottom to around the slider and camera icon area. I updated to 6.0.1 and it is no different. I've also seen the screen glitch when prompted for my apple account password. Mine was much worse than the image shown earlier in this thread, my keyboard was unreadable when it happened. Looked like an old TV with static on the screen.

     

    I may call apple store and see what they say. my phone is only 4 days old, I don't want a used replacement. I would prefer a new one.
