HTC Raider - screen washes out after beingbin pocket

I have had this issue for awhile now and finally figured out why it's happening.

If appears that after being in my pocket for awhile, the screen washes out in the middle except for one small speck. Colors are off and blacks are grey/brown, the edges appear normsl, and it goes away after a few minutes.

I figure it must be from body heat from it being against my leg.

Has anyone else encountered this issue with IPS LCD screens, or with any other similar current smartphone?

I'm hoping it isn't something that gets degenerative over time, and I'm not sure if it calls for a replacement at this time since the damage is not lasting or permanent.. yet.

Hey Rogers community!

 

Has anyone experienced this kind of issue before?  Is it only in your pocket that this happens?

Yes it is. Generally stuffed in there with a wallet and the screen facing in against my leg.

Not sure if it is a body heat issue, pressure on the phone casing, or magentic issues with the wallet material and cards inside it, all I know is I've never seen it happen with my previous phone and I wonder if it is common with the new screens in general or if my handset is a lemon.

Yes, happens to my phone constantly. Only after remaining in my pocket. I'm worried it will wear out he screen faster with this problem. Hope Rogers has a solution.
