My Galaxy S3 has developed a graphics fault (see image) and I don't know the cause or the cure. It has not been exposed to humidity or any thing magnetic and to the best of my knowledge it has not been dropped. Im not sure whether its a hardware or an Android OS issue.

The fault is a purplish blemish that seems to be getting darker and bigger with time. Has any body got any idea of the cause but more importantly the cure (if any). Many Thanks

    It must be hardware issue. – roxan Feb 20 '13 at 4:02
  • What was the cause of the problem anyway? What caused the damage? I have the same problem. – Giorgos Apr 7 '17 at 17:10

Your phone officially needs a trip back to a Samsung Service center

That is in No Way caused by any android glitch, as the issue is progressive (getting darker, bigger in time). It might be caused by some shock that made the lcd inside crack and bleed.

  • Yes, I sent it back to see whats what – stephenmyall Feb 21 '13 at 15:47
