iPhone X has only been in the market for a week and has already made the news for all the wrong reasons. Users have complained about a green line that appears on the edge of the screen after several hours of using it.
Previously, Apple was rumoured to have compromised on the accuracy of the iPhone X's facial recognition system. Given the high price of the device, the news caused a major outcry among users leading to Apple giving a clarification that no such compromises were made.

This time, the people who did get their hand on the anniversary edition device have taken to Twitter to report the “green line of death” which seems to be leaving quite a lot of them frustrated.

While some just had to bring in Apple's biggest rival, Samsung into this debate too especially after the ad that Samsung released mocking Apple.

The line appears at the edge of the OLED display and is a very thin line but quite visible at it too. There has been no confirmation regarding this issue from Apple but one user did claim to have gotten his phone exchanged with “no issues” at all.
I took it to the apple store and they exchanged it with no issues. Good luck.

This can only mean one thing; Apple knows that this problem exists but haven't quite figured out what's causing it.
