    Pics of dead pixel? Like cartoons, pixels usually don't truly die. They just get stuck. It's usually possible to unstick it. Of course yours may be truly dead somehow, in which case I'm not even sure if it's enough for a return, unless it's a lot of dead pixels.

    If it bothers you a lot try to unstick or, or go back to stock and try to return it. If you complain enough they'll usually warranty anything you can pass as a defect.

    How to Fix a Stuck Pixel on an LCD Monitor - wikiHow

    This explains well enough. I did the "pressure" and "tap" method to fix an HDTV I bought that shipped w/ a stuck pixel. May or may not work on a Droid screen. I used a stylus from an old WinMO phone and a felt cloth.

    But if you can't manage to unstick it I wouldn't be terribly surprised if you can get a warranty. I never saw a return for this when I worked as a rep though.
