I bought the phone and had  good look at it ,there was no black dot. I was busy all weekend so switched phone on today and it was there. I just did a factory reset and its still there. I havent gone any further yet.

try setting the phone up fully.

OK i`ll get back if its still there . I looked at the  recently uploaded images on this forum and there is a photo posted  that appears to have a similar black circle/dot but on the other side to mine. The image by user Gillainfulcher1 on the 5th August but that was about a different subject.

Havent transfered my data from old phone but have been right through set up and its still there . A bit annoying as its right over the  up arrow on the sms keyboard.

maybe take to a Samsung repair centre and see if they have any advice or solution..

What does it look like to you??

To me it doesnt look like a pixel problem but a sort of rogue icon or something. 😀

is it definitely the screen or is it something stuck under the screen protector

Its looks to be definitely the screen , the screen protector is just one of those tempered glass peel and stick ones(not the uv glue type). Its a perfect circle and jet black like some sort of icon.
