    I got my first ipad replaced becouse of uneven backlight and white dot in corner month ago, and now i noticed the new one has backlight bleeding. Is it really that bad? Should i give it again for warranty repair? It has uneven backlight too but not that much as my first one.

    I could write a book on iPad backlight bleed. I had many terrible 1st gen iPad Pro units with horrible backlight bleed. In my opinion, this 3rd gen iPad Pro 12-inch is way better of a quality build than the 1st gen by far. I went through multiple returns with the 1st gen and finally settled on a dog turd unit instead of a horse turd unit. My current 3rd gen unit is a gem.

    Is it really that bad in real life usage? it’s lcd so it will be never perfect. You can try to exchange but you won’t know how good or bad the next device will be. I was lucky with my Air 3 but I did not test it in that way you did.

    It isnt that bad, but its annoying me while watching movies at night, you know once you see it you cant unsee it, especially becouse my first one didnt have that. Can you do a photo with your screen at night with max brightness? I just want to compare

    I’ve had that occur more than once. Sometimes Apple said within spec, other times replaced without question. If you’ve noticed though, get to an Apple Store and politely but firmly ask for some help.

    If you are not happy definitely go for a replacement. If you are able to go directly to an Apple Store I would check directly the replacement because like I stated above it's LCD and its a bit of lottery to get a better device.
    It's really time to get OLED on iPads.
