    I've noticed some uneven brightness on the left edge of the screen and am wondering if others have the same issue. Scrolling on a white background/website it's most noticeable.

    The best way I can describe it, it's as if there's a tiny flashlight that is spilling light toward the center from the edge. A little above half way in portrait mode, there's a pocket of light that is brighter than above and below it. I've already tried it on a second iPad Pro 9.7 to see if I just got a bad unit but it seems to be on both. Are others seeing this?

    I ran a backlight bleeding test with an image of a black solid and didn't notice much light spill on black. But I definitely notice this uneveness scrolling on white webpages.

    Not noticed that on mine, I have slightly pink to green from bottom to top in portrait mode but nothing terrible. Always a lottery with screens in my experience of Apple products.

    Yup for anyone who has the same issue, I did yet another exchange and the third iPad Pro 9.7 finally didn't have the issue. 2 out of 3 bad ones seems like a pretty high percentage to me. Or maybe it was just a bad batch the first week.

    I have the same issue with my 128GB wifi. White on the left edge looks kind of dirty. You see it when scrolling through emails or websites and, of course, on white pages.
    It's really annoying, that quality standards in that price range are so low.
    I'm going to return mine, but i'm not sure, that i will try again.
