    there's two small marks on the glass that are visible whenever you swipe your finger over the screen area that they are on or when I clean the screen. not sure what i'd classify it as but it looks weird.

    and before you ask it's not just finger prints they stay even after cleaning just not as visible.

    yeah had to use my previous phone for the photo and use a torch because the light was hard to see it with if not.

    Hmmm??? I think you would have noticed them out of the box. It almost looks like air trapped.

    not to begin with but after using the phone for a couple of minutes and swiping over that part of the screen it becomes visible.

    why would air trapped show up when the screen is greasy?

    clean the display with 100% alcohol and tell us if the marks disappear.
    If they appear again as soon as the oil of your fingers get on the screen just clean it again, buy a tempered glass :D

    That's how I always clean my screen, I had a tempered glass protector but it annoys me too much to use because as soon as i put it on it had dust under it so i took it off =/

    This is probably it, I would suggest taking an exact knife to the screen and see if air comes out

    Dont actually do it, its just a joke

    *cringe* think i'll just live with it to be honest it's not really too noticeable. Are we sure it's air is there any other possibilities?

    There might be an air bubble inside the actual pane of glass. If it is, then it's a Corning Gorilla Glass problem, not OnePlus's.

    well.....certainly, I don't know if there is a glass defect, but I know a thing for sure: you could work at CSI

    When you spend as much time as I do staring at screens you notice the smaller things, for example, the screen has minor backlight bleed. =/
