    Personally, that would bother me but how would you replicate that to a Genius?

    Uhm its simple just play a video off youtube that has dark borders or something or download a black wallground and crank the brightness up on full and be like "this is unacceptable how can i watch videos with this"

    You can just return the phone if you are within your first 30 days.

    Keep bringing it back until you get one that is satisfactory to you.

    They replaced it.. The new one has very little light leak at the top only visible at full brightness and in dark room.. so i am happy with it. :)
