    I've been putting up for awhile now, with a strange but small dark patch on the bottom right of my iPhone 4's retina display.

    This is NOT the known yellow taint that plagued screens when the iPhone 4 released, this is a permanent dull patch.

    It's almost like the backlight isn't as bright in that particular small spot. It's most notable on lighter displays like reading a book in iBooks.

    I'm tempted to book it into the Genius bar. However, I purchased this iPhone 4 outright, the full £600. I'm sure they will offer me a replacement, but I can almost guarantee it'll be a refurbished unit. Where do I stand? I don't really want a refurb, considering I paid a lot of money for this unit, it doesn't seem right getting a refurb in it's place.

    Has anyone else had this screen issue?

    currently there are no refurbs! they wont start using those till at least 6 months after initial release.

    Walked into Apple store. Walked out 15 minutes later with a new replacement iPhone 4. Love Apple service.
