    The only thing i've heard of is the 7 series versus 5 series lcd screens, but with newer firmware updates i havnt heard anyone complain about the 7 series screen

    You can find out which panel your iPhone has by dialing *3001#12345#* then tapping Call from the Phone application. This will put iPhone into “Field Mode” where you can select “Versions” to find out what version of the LCD you have.

    the 5 series is better, but it really isnt a big deal

    supposedly a 5 series screen is brighter and sharper, but apple hasn't akgnowledged a difference between the two

    if screen quality seems to be an issue, you can always exchange it, but i think you will be pretty impressed with the iphones screen

    The issiue is that the two series screens were manufactured by different companies. Some 7 series screens have been known to have some black shading and some brightness issues. I have seen several 7 series phones next to 5 series phones and none of us were able to see any difference at all. So even if it's a 7 series screen, I wouldn't worry too much. If you get the phone, compare it to someone elses. If they are similar in brightness and there are no shadow artifacts, your OK. If there are, then return it for a replacement.

    there is no early or late version. They were both manufactured from day 1, but the source of the screens were 2 different companies. Still same applies. The series 5 was not an update to series 7.

    I see. So its just hit and miss. Is there a particular batch that were affected the most . eg between week 32 and 36. Or are they just scattered everywhere?
