Question White iPhone 4 Light Leakage?

Hi, I've had my new white iPhone for a couple days now and this morning I was messing on the phone in the dark and I noticed light coming out of the headphone jack and simcard adapter hole. Its not super bright light, but noticeable. It doesnt even look like its a flaw really, almost like its supposed to be there. If you think about it the light is somewhat of a convenience?
(I would have provided a pic but the phone is currently my only camera atm)

So I was just wondering, is this normal for all whites? Does yours do it? I never saw any light but the screen when I had the black i4. Thanks.

The color of your phone doesn't make a different, this has been normal on every iPhone since 2007, enjoy.

I've had every iPhone since 2007, and used them all in the dark, and I never seen it. Thanks for the input.

I consider it to be a feature, helps you find the headphone port in the dark

I didn't noticed that until I read it here. But it's not really noticeable unless you look at the inside the headphone jack. And no light bright enough can be seen coming out off it though, just when you look closely inside.
