Some iPhone X displays have a nasty green line

From Engadget - November 10, 2017

We have asked Apple for comment on the issue. It does not appear that restarts or other common software solutions fix it, though, and this might be strictly a hardware problem. It's not necessarily an overscan line like you might see on a TV, either.No matter what, it's safe to say that you can get a replacement if the usual troubleshooting proves fruitless.

It's unclear how many people are affected by the green line, although it does not appear to be a widespread issue. Between this and the (software-fixable) cold weather responsiveness issue, though, it appears that the iPhone X has some teething troubles. That's not entirely surprising. It's Apple's first phone to use an OLED screen, and it's using a custom (Samsung-manufactured) panel at that -- there may be a learning curve involved as the companies master their production techniques. As it is, Samsung has had problems with its own OLED phones. Provided the iPhone X flaw is a hardware issue, it illustrates the broader issues with manufacturing cutting edge OLED screens.
