Noticed them on the first day I bought. They changed it the other day since it's not a mechanical damage and Samsung fault.

got mine. but noticed a line shadow on the screen when texting in a dark room. screen brightness to full line shadow and super thin white lines appear. super white thin lines not seen on room with lights. my carrier telco said they will replace unit if there is damage said by samsung service center. service center acknowledges the line shadow visible on gray color on screen. they want to open my unit. i resisted and said no. its brand new. i insisted they must replace it. they dont want to. its an eye sore for me and it irritates me. i put cash on it and this is what i get. better check your unit guys. my telco and service center is avoiding me. bad after sales support. my last samsung phone. hope to get a G2 if all comes to worst. sell this and get a g2 very very bad experience.

Thing is both phones are exellent.
Battery 1% 15h 43 min z1

both phones are 4g
s4 is i9505 and sony is c6903
ram usage are almost same around 700 mb RAM free on both phones after all day use (I didn`t clean ram all day just too see)
