Vlogger Marques Brownlee Reveals his Pixel 3 has a Bright Pink Vertical Stripe of Dead Pixels right down the Center of it
Yesterday we posted a report titled "Unbox Therapy Highlights Pixel 3's 'Scuffgate' Issue." Today we're learning from a Marques Brownlee video that his recently obtained Pixel 3 smartphone already has a disastrous vertical line of dead pixels right down the middle of its display.
Brownlee begins to talk about the problem at the around the 3:37 mark of the video below. Brownlee notes: "… and you'll notice it has a stripe, a pink stripe straight down the middle. A full brightness stripe of dead pixels completely in the center of the display." He points to this being a problem in the past with Samsung panels.
Brownlee added: There's no real guaranteed fix for it. It's just kind of a thing that happens. It sucks. Now I can't use this phone anymore and I'll have to get a new one and it's going to be replaced super soon but that's … that's terrible.
While Brownlee doesn't think this will be a widespread issue, only time will tell.
