What is a pressure spot? What types of pressure spots are there?

As its name implies, pressure spots on phone screens can render the display useless (or irritating, based on how you see it) by creating spots of different shapes and styles on the screen. These spots show continually, and most times, permanently on the display and can obstruct your viewing or cause other problems such as dead pixels, flickering, or blurriness.

When you apply too much pressure on your phone’s display – whether accidentally, intentionally, or carelessly, it damaged the LCD components, hence creating different spots on the display.

Pressure spots on LCD screens can come in different forms and shapes depending on the density of pressure applied. Sometimes, the spots can be whitish, deep black, or come in various colors depending on what’s currently showing on the screen.

How to protect your phone from pressure sports

Paying for screen replacement from your own pocket (especially when you don’t have any form of screen insurance or protection plan), can be a pain in the ass. However, there’s probably nothing you could have done better than learning how to protect your phone screen from pressure spots in the future.

Pressure spots on LCD screens (or any screen in general) occur accidentally or carelessly. The only way to avoid such damage in the future is to handle your phone carefully. Try as much to shun applying much pressure on the screen while playing games and performing other tasks.

When inserting your phone into your pocket, purse or bag, ensure there's enough space to accommodate it. Also, ensure there are no other objects inside the pocket, purse, or bag.

Equally important, if you're wearing a dress with tight pockets, we recommend you keep your phone somewhere else rather than forcing it inside the pocket, as it may be pressurized when you move your body.

Overall, the only way to prevent your phone screen from getting pressure spots in the feature is to handle it carefully whenever and wherever possible. If you ever come across the need to drop your phone somewhere, ensure you don’t place anything on it.

Here are some things to put into consideration:

  • Handle your phone with ultimate care.
  • Avoid inserting your phone into tight pockets, purses or bags.
  • Avoid squeezing, bending, or packing heavy loads on your phone screen.
  • You may invest on a protective case or screen guard.

Taking these few things into consideration would help you protect your phone screen from pressure spots in the future, rather than looking for how to fix pressure spots on LCD screen when it happens.

Now, if you’ve accidentally applied much pressure on your phone’s screen and some spots are showing on it when you turn it on, the best thing you can do is to visit the official service provider for your device for a screen replacement. Trying to shift the spots away or performing some DIY tricks may cause more harm than good.
