    Got 2 pres yesterday and one of them has highly visible horizontal lines (about 4-5) that can be seen on any app. Seems to be part of the grid perhaps? About 3 dead pixels as well. The other pre has none of those issues.

    Anyone have experience with replacing a pre with those horizontal lines?

    Attempts to take a pic failed to show them on the picture. They seem to be 1-2 pixel tall and of various widths, and the pixels are all quite reflective/metallic looking, which is what makes them stand out.

    I probably should remove my Zagg shield to make sure it isn't that.

    I have the clear coat shield, and have something that seems similar. The lines don't go all the way across the screen, and I didn't notice them until after I added the clear coat. I'm considering getting a new shield and removing the current one just to make sure. no dead pixels at all though.

    I bought mine at the mall (same as the pre) so I'll probably head out next week to have the zagg removed (paid for installing since I suck at applying shields) and see if that helps (I have some air bubbles still after 24 hours).

    I've read other posts with similar horizontal lines and I believe they also were using Zagg shields.

    I bought one but never used it. I don't think I'm going to either.

    Yea, if they are replacing because of splotches, I'm sure they'd replace it.

    You can do it yourself. Just grab a corner and peel it off. It doesn't leave a film or anything. Pretty easy.
