    Yes, there is a sensor right above the speaker. It's called the Ambient Light Sensor. There are 8 things on top of the iPhone x in that area around the speaker. Infrared camera, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, speaker, microphone, front camera, and dot projector.



    Your phone is fine. A small speck of dust (which I don't think exists under your glass or in your camera lense) does not prevent you from making calls, surfing the net, using siri, sending/receiving texts, watching videos, taking pictures or recording videos. It's time to let this complaint go.
    There not one a couple of specks in a new unit that’s 4 days old and another memember said to take to apple store like I did with my 8 plus they did replace it

    There not one
    Yes there is. I'm looking right at a photo taken from the Apple event where they introduced the X. The photo clearly shows everything at the top of the screen with text that Apple added to point out what all 8 items are. Same thing as your photo.

    Bring it to an Apple Store, and they should replace it for you.

    The ambient light sensor is characterized by a straight bar above the speaker/mic. Looking at the internals picture from iFixit, the speaker and mic are actually 2 tiny holes side-by-side while the ambient light sensor is just a small piece above it between the holes, not like what was shown in the picture from OP which seems like something circular.

    Here's the pic from iFixit.

    There was a dust issue with his iPhone 7, there was a dust issue with his iPhone 8, and now there is a dust issue with his iPhone X. He's been told repeatedly (actually, more than repeatedly) how to go about handling issues with supposed dust.

    I don't see any dust in the photo.

    I also don't see dust issues as well, perhaps just a mark or a blemish or something, but definitely not a sensor.

    Give Rhinoshield a go, they have an E2E Tempered Glass Screen protector the upside is no rainbow, the downside is depending on the case it may lift the 4 corners up but its no the end of world compared to a rainbow affect.

    Hello installed screen protector Anker on iPhone X after wasting three screen protectors the last one had multiple layers of dust I tried scotch tape method no luck more dust is there.

    the last one I tried three tries removing dust no luck.

    If I install a new one will it cause dead pixel ?

    I had a Belkin ultra glass on my iPhone 7 that the genuis lady reused my glass it had dust my dad purchased a new one caused dead pixel.

    I”m using a spigen case on my iPhone X for now

    Which glass can I buy on amazon for iPhone X ?

    No it won’t... you’re putting sticky glass on top of other glass. The pixels are underneath the phones digitizer

    Which brand should I buy from amazon ?

    I had bad experience with Belkin and Black web and anker on iPhone 7

    Black web from Walmart caused a tiny smudge from the acholo pad.

    With Belkin cracks to easily.

    With anker dust issue luckily I installed one till Apple swapped my device then I wasted one from one box and two from second one on new phone luckily when I open second box I didn’t used the wipe pad again only cloth and dust remover sticker and still dust.

    Why don’t you just go to Best Buy and buy a screen protector there? They will put it on for you and it will be done right- guaranteed!

    Make sure you use a bright flashlight when cleaning the screen.
    And then proceed with the binge method.

    That’s your best option if you have issues. Also, as mentioned above many times, screen protectors can’t cause dead pixels. I’m not sure why you thought they could but moving forward just know you’ll be okay! Not everything is doom and gloom so enjoy life.
