Black spots at screen

I'm having this problem with my iP5

Block Image

it's like some dark shadows at the top of screen.

I already changed the display twice, all with the same problem, but these new displays have no problem since i used them in another iP5 and they were OK.

Someone have any clue what this could be?

Thx in advance.

Is this a good question?

A friend of mine has a very similar issue due to water damage. I believe it has something to do with a damaged connector for the display or corrosion in the logic board.

When/how did it start?
