    Is it normal for the heat from the screen to make designs on your screen that looks like water got in there? You can't see it unless you Shine it on the light. I think I remember when I had my 3GS. I had such a tight case it made air bubbles & Marks. Do you guys know what I mean by this?

    Can u provide a SS? Heat shouldn't distort the picture or affect the screen unless it was EXTREMELY hot or left in direct sunlight for a long period of time

    No doubt, and you might want to take a trip to the nearest Apple Store and get it swapped out for another one.

    That's not normal. I'd plan a visit to your nearest Apple store.

    If it is heat related, only a picture would be useful... Probably wouldnt show up in a screen shot

    Are you talking about the Lifeproof case contact to screen oil slicks

    I got them can only see them when the screen is off.

    No big issue

    I have an otter box. Yes, it is the screen oil slicks. Is that caused by the heat of the screen?

    All cases with screen covers will have a pillow effect causing to screen to have a rainbow effect and oil markings. Even though you clean the screen you will always have this. Just my two cents

    That's normal with cases that have a built-in screen protector. The screen protector is just getting stuck to the phone at different pressure points. This doesn't harm the phone at all, it's just a bit annoying.

    Take that screen cover that's built into the case and put u a real one on there. That's what I do. Just press with ur fingers and pop it out. Clean off the excess glue and put a spigen sp on there.
