Well my blob keeps moving but now the top edge of the screen has a blob whenever i apply pressure to the top corner. Its as if the screen is coming away from the phone.

I'm going to have to send it back but have unlocked, cwm and rooted.Running stock B885

Assume as from Voda online has to go to them and not a store?

Cheers

No need for that thar as B885 is a stock rom anyway so flashing it again removes root and cwm recovery when he uses the update.app method.

Just got my G300 and was wondering about getting a screen protector. Is there any evidence that the protectors are causing this, or with it being gorilla glass is one necessary anyway? What does anyone advise please.

Thanks as ever,

Blob visited me too and it seems its usually in the higher middle of the screen... isn't the CPU right on the other side?

We bought cheap phone, this was bound to happen... Huawei is obviously not a charity and fairly decent hardware needs to be compensated with cheap manufacturing, let's hope that these temporary blobs are the only problem that lot of us will need to handle.

There is no way screen protectors are causing this and there is certainly no particular reason you could not use one. Gorilla Glass is supposed to be scratch resistant, but it won't be infallible. Try dragging a key down the screen, for instance, and you'll see what I mean!! It guards against everyday light scratches, but if anything scrapes forcefully against it there will still be evidence. By all means use a protector to be safe.

I had this (no screen protector) and promptly shat myself, but a bit of squeezing the sides of the phone fixed it.

I wrote this in another topic, but I copy for what it's worth: I work four hours at day with phone in my pocket, listening to music the four full hours, I have screen protector and protector case, now Spain is like hell (more than 35 centigrade degrees) and NEVER see any blob. So I think is more an issue that only occur for some phones, a manufacturing defect.

I hope this help, see you!

Yes. I would take my phone straight back to the Vodafone shop if I saw the blob even once. And yes my phone goes around in my pocket all the time and have never seen this. Touch wood...

I no people will not agree with me, but I sell water proof jackets, for a company called gor-tex and see water stains all the time. And what I think is happening is as you're phone is in you're pocket you're body is giving of water vapor a lot smaller then a water drop and what makes gor-tex breathable, this vapour is entering the phone through either the USB/mic or headphone holes then resting on the screen untilled its either released or evaporated. If you look close you sometimes see a yellowish line around the blob, this is a classic water stain mark.

Just my opinion as I suffer it to.

This happenned to me the other day when I found my daughter had been sitting on the phone... it went away on it's own and hasn't re-appeared, so I'm pretty sure that was to do with pressure. My phone has certainly never got close to any dampness.

Water vapor is a gas given off by the body nothing to do with dampness. We all give it off and its 1000s times smaller then a water droplets even you're daughter sitting on you're phone could condense the vapor into a small area.

i've had the same thing before when its been in my pocket, and i've been woundering what it was but if you keep rubbish your screen with your thumb it seems to go away. at first i thought it might of been an air bubble but then obvoiously why wpuld it stick, and then i thought it was moisture but my phones never been neat water. after an extensive look i found it to be the lens on the front of the phone is flexable but not the naked eye, and when the lens is pressurised (basically being pushing in) then the lens seems to touch the screen on the inside. but basically this is a cheap phone so not everything is perfect.

Disagree. Its not moisture. No chance.

It's the glass and the lcd being stuck together. Imagine what you see when a sucker is stuck to a window (for example something hanging in a car window) and pulled off - its a similar principle.

Aside: I see no yellow outline.

Also if you work for GORE-TEX you should find out how to spell the name of your company!

Also how do you explain putting your phone in you're pocket will give enough pressure to push the screen together. And if you haven't yet seen the yellow outline you're problem maybe different to mine. I quite often see it and see it on plenty of jackets returned to me.

How much pressure is "enough to push the screen together"? I can explain because if you 'pinch' your phone front and back it presses together enough to push the LCD up to the glass. It doesn't take a lot of pressure. Just a small amount in the right place.

I sell water proof jackets, for a company called gor-tex

This sentence is ambiguous - its not clear whether you sell waterproof jackets for gore-tex, or sell waterproof jackets for a company who bought them off goer-tex. Anyway - that's all beside the point. You sell gore-tex but couldn't spell it.

was giving my opinion you don't have to agree. I personaly feel this is what's happening.

I know you were giving your opinion. And I disagreed - that means I know I don't have to agree. Thanks for stating two perfectly obvious things.

Yes but when you pinch you're phones screen the blob doesn't stay there does it or am I missing something. Instead I could go through the thread pointing out spelling mistakes.

And I am glad you don't agree never said you had to ,and I wasn't trying to be a smart arse with my thoughts.

Not true water vapour is a gas, water expands with heat also freezing which would explain why it sometimes shows after rubbing friction caused by the phone in you're pocket. As previously stated these vapor gases are tiny compared to water droplets and dust particles you would need 1000s of them to gather up before any damage was done to your phone and is why there is no dust as we don't sweat it. Also gore-tex validates its life time guarantee to garments with no puncture marks and that have a water mark with a yellow outline. As the toxins in human sweat are similar to those we pee e.g yellow.

I am not stating this as a fact just something I believe could be possible.As I can see a yellow outline on the blob on my phone.

I could be and probably are wrong !. I have been unable to replicate this in pockets further away from my body. And it seems to happen in trouser pockets that are near your thighs/groin an area that produces a lot of heat/ vapor. With only a cotton pocket to stop it.What ever it is ,its strange but I personaly think it could be a cause but as previously stated its just my opinion.

Lets just presume you are right and it is a water vapour for a minute.

Its building up in such a significant amount to leave stains behind. If it was a gas/sweat/vapour that is cooling/gathering into a puddle as it appears in the pictures, then it would leave stains.What can be seen is clearly a 'puddle' and not a haze of gas. The only reason it would not leave stains would be if it was deionized water with no contaminants in it. Sweat contains amongst other things, salt. Salt leaves a salt residue behind.

Dust would still get in as although we dont physically sweat it, its everywhere in the atmosphere.

How do you explain the colouring in the pic I linked?
