The problem that first appeared back in March 2016 seems to have surfaced again, but Samsung still does not recognize it as a widespread issue. Even worse, when taken for repair, handsets with such problems might not be covered by warranty.

As recently revealed by technology blog Myce, an older display problem that seems to affect quite a few Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge handsets has surfaced again. Fortunately, it is not one that makes the device unusable, but it can be quite irritating.

Yesterday, Myce mentioned that all the users complaining about this issue did not drop the phone or had it in contact with liquids. Back then, Samsung did not recognize this to be a widespread issue. Fortunately, today the company returned with an official statement that says the problem usually occurs with phones that have a cracked display, also acknowledging that devices without any visible cracks face it sometimes as well.

Samsung Benelux stated that the vertical pink line issue will be repaired under warranty, it is not clear yet if this is true for Samsung subsidiaries all over the world. In the meantime, if you happen to own a Galaxy S7 Edge without any issues but also without a case, Samsung Benelux advises the use of a protective shell to make the handset less vulnerable.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
