IPhone X users complain about hardware flaw dubbed 'green line of death'

Even though thousands of Apple fans queued up outside stores to purchase the device when it was launched, it seems that fans are getting sick of the continuous issues plaguing the device.

After the problem was discovered by a number of device owners, dozens more reported experiencing it as well and posted pictures on Twitter to prove it. Some users have complained that their iPhone X's display becomes unresponsive in cold temperatures, while another subset of users are complaining that their iPhone X display starts to show a green on the display after a period of use.

The line, which does not go away once it manifests itself, even after a full reboot, has been reported as appearing close to the edges of the screen. It's unclear at the moment whether or not this can be fixed with a firmware update, or if Apple will have to make some hardware changes on the iPhone X to prevent this happening with future devices. One such report claimed that the iPhone X showed this problem at a temperature of -20°C, which caused only 20 percent of the touch inputs on the screen to be detected. One user says the issue is so bad for him that the cracking occurs even around 50 percent volume.

What improvements do we want to see? The issue doesn't seem to be connected to any particular type of configuration or iOS version.

Since the introduction of the iPhone 7, the front facing earpiece also doubles as a stereo speaker, but issues of this kind have not been apparent on previous models. Thus far, all reports have suggested the issue is with the earpiece speaker, and not the speaker at the bottom of the device. At the time of writing, Apple has not commented on the issue. Last week, Apple had also warned users that the iPhone X's OLED screen might fall prey to screen burn in, and advised users to keep the brightness as low as possible to avoid the problem.
