Would you return your new iPod touch if it had this issue

Hey. So I got a new iPod touch 5th generation. Everything was working great until I noticed light coming out from the bottom. Usually while in Safari and movies. I want to hear your opinions

It's a minor issue, I can barely see it. Save yourself the hassle.

If you think otherwise, like it bugs you everytime you use your iPod Touch, then get a replacement.

Well kind of. I also noticed the home button a bit loose. I'm not sure if it only mines. Like I want to know if you happen to own one

I guess but I feel like my 4th generation was perfect so this should be too

If you feel the home button is loose, go to an Apple store and try the units on display or talk to them about it.

The iPad 2 screen leaks as well, it could be a problem with all 5th gen models as with the iPad 2. I'd go down and see what they say, uv'e nothing to loose!

I have this on my MacBook, iPhone, and iPads. Had it on every previous item too - really doesn't bother me at all.

Check to see if it's warped (bent). Just got mine for Christmas and it's warped in the middle and the side of the screen are white from being slightly stretched. I tried to return it but Apple says it's been misused or accidently damaged and will NOT replace it or repair it. I've been extremely careful with it and read a few blogs about the ipod touch 5 warping...if yours is warped please complaint to Apple....they said there would be a recall only if many people complained....PLEASE CALL...there's power in numbers!!
