I read a post by a member somewhere else regarding a strange black circular pattern appearing behind the screen. Today it appeared for me too, after after a strenuous morning mowing the lawn. It appears to be condensation building up between the touchscreen and the lcd underneath. It disappeared after a while.

First time I have had this happen with a smartphone. Both my HTC units could be in my pocket all day and never develop condensation, even my trusty old blade was fine.

Perhaps I have a poorly built unit where the touchscreen and lcd are not adhered very well.

Anyone else?

Not a biggie for me (unless it gets excessively damp!!!), for £100 I am not that bothered, still a great phone for the price.

the original pic looked more like something pressing on the screen, like the digitizer and screen were touching in one spot rather than condensation.
I feel that its also something to do with poor adhesion, as I had an issue with very poor screen accuracy which went away and the 2 reports along with my experience point to this in my opinion.
I am also sure I read somewhere that there is poor adhesion between the digitizer and screen and that it may lead to dust issues. I think it was on a review that I read it.

I originally reported the blob a couple of weeks ago. It didn't look like condesation to me. As above, it looked more like something pressing the screen from the back. Pressing the screen itself with my finger did not affect the blob in any way; only pressing from othe back. Like you say, on both occasions I experienced it it went away again. First time it went away immediately when I pressed about a bit at the back of the phone with the cover off. The other time it went away on its own after an hour's travelling in the car.

I am beginning to concur with the guy who suggested it may be a looseness in the fitting of the digitiser screen. I pressed my phone together all around the frame after the last time it happened and it has not returned since, despite spending considerable time in the offending jeans pocket.
