Line appears on screen when using app

Last Update Date : Jan 10. 2018

Q: A line appears on the screen when I use some applications. Is my device faulty?

A: Your device is not faulty.

When application has a image where the colour has graduations, e.g. changing from light blue to dark blue (see examples below) a line may appear.

However this is dependent on the application due to its “bit depth”.

The Galaxy note uses high resolution “24bit depth”. However if the application uses “16 bit depth” a line may appear.
