    My apologies for another defect post, but I must ask this. Is any one else seeing their iPhone 5's light shining through the space between the bezel and the hold button?

    I can see light shining slightly through the bezel and aluminum joint right in front of the sleep/wake button. Doesn't bother me but I noticed it and I imagine it isn't a feature.

    I see no light between my sleep button and bezel, nor my home button, but I don't know if seeing light really is a defect, I could always see light from the headphone jack in previous phones

    Yepp, I have the same issue. I don't think it's worth exchanging for, though.

    I had this with my iPod touch 4G it was like a dot of light between the volume buttons but I didn't see it as a big deal

    I have a white 32gb iphone 5 (verizon) and I also have the light bleed in the exact spot as described by the OP. See pics attached.

    Wow, it just keeps getting worse. There is a serious quality control issue with iPhones.

    Mine is white. I noticed that every picture I have seen of this issue is with the white iPhone. Coincidence? I think not...

    I personally find it hilarious that a barely noticeable light leak only visible in dark circumstances warrants such a fuss.

    MacRumors seems to be the place to whine about such mundane things.

    im sorry but this is 10 times more serious than some tiny dot on the back of my aluminium iPhone threads...

    that said i have the same leak and will wait a week-two for new batches to arrive, then return my phone and open the new one in the apple store until i find a flawless one.
    no matter how small the defect this phone isnt the most expensive on the market just because it doesnt have the best processor,ram and a reliable map.this should serve them a good lesson to take quality control more serious jesus christ
