    is this normal on any of your phones. when held up to the light i can see on the left, right, top, and bottom blank screen areas on my screen. it doesnt bug me much. just wondering if it was normal.

    Also when they do fix the light leak problems in the phones can i just walk into an apple store and demand a new one under my one year warranty.

    thank you for your responses.

    That's normal for whatever reason Apple has. Not sure about light leak problem as I don't have that issue.

    If you are talking about the black strip around the border of screen, that is the design.

    Not sure what you mean

    If you hold it in the sunlight it becomes really apparent.

    It's normal. The part of the LCD that displays stuff doesn't do all the way to the very edge. If you put the phone to sleep, you'll notice that it looks exactly like the LCD does when it's off.
