    The one I found I noticed on my Nexus when in light colored background like in gmail or email. It was almost in the middle of my screen and was light blue looking on a white like background. You can download a pixel test app in the market, there are a few, puts various colors up on your screen and you look for a dead one that way. Make sure the screen is very dust free though.

    Thank you. Btw, is it easy enough to spot? Big enough to see or minuscule? Don't think I have any...

    Pretty tiny, you'll have to look close, but you'll see them if you have any. If mine wasn't right in the middle of my screen I probably wouldn't have noticed.
