Screen dying already?

Unfortunately this seemed to be the case for everybody in this thread (including me) who commented on that except the first person who reported it. Support just mentions the expired warranty and that's it. So I'm afraid it's a pretty safe assumption by now.

To give an update on the screen replacement: I replaced my screen in 09/2021 and it has not shown any signs of delamination so far. That's about 8 months so far whereas the old screen started showing signs after around 5 or 6 months. But I also haven't used the phone as much anymore in the past couple of months.

Well, that sounds like a assumption to me.

Of course I had contacted the support -- and got the reply that the warranty expires after 30 days. (I had written to them two months after receiving the phone.)

Hello Anna,
I'm just curious for myself. Did you sweat on it or use it after handling nail polish or anything? May I ask what kind of laundry detergent you use? I messed my first screen up by getting a small amount of residue on it like third-hand from something that touched something else in my amateur home lab and am trying to avoid messing it up again.
Thank you

Have the same issue with my KDE edition. This started to happen after I started putting the phone in / out of the keyboard case. The more often I did this, the more the screen degraded. I suspect that caused by the tight case and when getting out of it, I damage its glue.
