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?

I like that it made me laugh:D
It sounds mad when you say it like that. Like previously stated don't no if I am right, but definitely using that if I have to replace my phone.
Will tell the vodafone Rep my phone is no good as my balls are to sweaty.

Early Gore-Tex fabric replaced the inner layer
of PU with a thin, porous fluoropolymer
membrane ( Teflon) coating that is bonded to
a fabric. This membrane had about 9 billion
pores per square inch (around 1.4 billion
pores per square centimeter). Each pore is
approximately 1/20,000 the size of a water
droplet, making it impenetrable to liquid water
while still allowing the more autonomous
water vapour molecules to pass through.

Taken from Wikipedia to try and explain my sweaty balls argument.

Try this squzee the phone by two fingers one from top on the screen another from bottom in the same line(not very hard).The blob will appear than after the while will dissapear.For me answer is one there is no any moisture or water inside the phone.Phone just bends in the trouses pocket while sitting or driving in the car(what happen to me). Plastic which from has been made this phone its just to flexible and that thing will happen.That is my opinion.

Hope this helps.

Are we talking about a blob that looks like this, the best picture I can provide at this time. As no matter how hard I press or flex my phone it doesn't move anywhere.
