Screen replacement (White area at top of screen)


I have now completed several iPhone 6 screen replacements however seem to get a similar issue on most of them.

When you turn the device on and the white Apple screen shows, you can see a slightly whiter patch at the top of the screen. This is near to the ear piece assembly area. I have taken apart again but I still seem to get the same thing.

I am sure it must be something to do with pressure on the LCD, but I just wanted to know if anyone else was suffering similar issues.

It is not a major issue as you cannot notice when using the device, but I want to know what i am doing wrong

You're doing nothing wrong, this seems quite common with replacement screens, its probably the process in the Chinese factories, they're either not applying enough LOCA, or there might be a little too much in some areas causing pressure on the lcd. Nothing you can do unfortunately.
