All LCD also the same mah..u try poking hard into your IPS or LED monitor u see similar result.

The key question is do you normally poke so hard at a screen?

Tempered glass help?
The issue is not with poking/pressing the screen too hard..

It is if you hold the iPad with one thumb on the right bezel and 4 fingers behind the iPad and just simply lifting it up, it bends the component inside or something

Did not happen with the display set I tried with.

Until I exert pressure.

Well.. from that picture that's like lifting the iPad with only it's weight so probably a defective one.

So far only that spot will show that distortion. Suspect that's where the logic board is. Tried on the left side, no such screen issue.

I tried too and the distortion spot happen. Funny thing is, I hold it using my left hand and the distortion happen at the same spot the picture is showing. And I tried to press the iPad in various spots at the back...guess what, the screen distortion only happens at that particular spot.

If you check ifixit tear down, you are right, the logic board is at that right side. But I don't remember what is exactly positioned at that middle part.

middle right. dead center and large area at the left is battery.

Actually from that ifixit pics, looks like the spot is where the A8X cpu is.

probably got no battery to act as support and with the display being even thinner now, bound to have this issue just like we go touch the lcd display with our fingers.

Does it happen to Air 1 too? Or maybe since the display in Air 1 is not laminated, there is an air gap between display layers that the pressure from lower display does not show in the front display.

I have personally tested the Air 2 sound/vibration. Though I felt the vibration, IMHO, it's not a defect and since I use headset mostly, its a non issue.

As for the spot appearing on the screen while holding at the lower right side of the iPad, it does happen. And IMHO it's not a defect. It's due to the design. Since I use case on the iPad, this is also a non issue.

I suppose it's really to each his own. For those who are bothered, then, perhaps Air 2 it's not for you.
