iPhone 5 light leak

Hi everyone. Just received my white iPhone 5 and noticed that it suffers from a light leak under the power button. I would have thought this problem was solved by now. Has any one else bought one recently and noticed this or am I just unlucky?

There's a tiny light leak under my power button too. But I only notice it if I shut myself in a pitch dark closet and turn my phone on to maximum brightness. The light leak doesn't bother me because it doesn't appear with regular usage (I usually turn it on 50% brightness, and I usually don't use it in a dark closet).

Is your light leak distracting and easily visible? If so, you could try getting it exchanged, I don't know if they will though.

Can you still see yours at 50% brightness? For some reason on my one its still noticeable even at 50%. In bright daylight it's definitely not noticeable but as soon as I enter a slightly dark room it becomes noticeable. What colour is your iPhone out of interest?

It's happened to several people before, and I don't think any of them had problems getting exchanges!

Ok looks like I might have to make a trip to an apple store. This is my second iPhone. The first iPhone had a loose battery so I exchanged it for a brand new one with my network and even the first iPhone had a light leak. Can believe my second iPhone has it too. They won't take this one back though as they think this is "normal".
