What is the pixel policy of my phone in case you’ve got some bright pixels or dead pixels on your phone, are they covered under warranty?

LCD displays are made up of a set number of pixels and each pixel is made from 3 sub-pixels -one Red, one Blue and one Green. Every sub-pixel is addressed by its own transistor and so the manufacture of a glass substrate is very complex.

Hannspad Phones are covered by a 0/4/4 pixel policy: 0 bright dots / 4 dark dots / 4 total defect dots.

Only products above this tolerance will be considered as defective and thus will be treated under Warranty.
