I'm just wondering if my rMBP is actually screen bleeding or not. I cannot tell with my eyes, but doing the test. But when I take a picture with the camera, its warmer on the top left corner. But when I take a picture at a different angle its different it disappears or it becomes a cooler colour.

My screen is samsung, I'm quiet happy with my purchase and I'm just checking the screen. Is this something I should be concerned about?

I don't understand… are you bothered by how the screen looks to your eyes or how photos of your screen look? If you cannot tell with your eyes by looking it, why on earth would you think that you had a problem? And more importantly, why are you going out looking for something that your eyes can't see?

Honestly, the Retina MBP has spawned a whole new level of OCD.

It does appear that your screen suffers from bleeding, or a non-uniform screen. If this is something you don't notice, I recommend that you keep the machine if only because your next machine might be even worse. Going through various exchanges is stressful, and likely not worth it does not bother you.

Every time I change windows with 3 fingers I notice there's a darker shade in the middle of the screen that stays dark. It's only noticeable on white background. That's why I'm checking the overall screen. I don't know what this issue is called though. I dont think its IR.

Paying a lot of money for something, I have rights to check for issues.

Agreed exchanged my Galaxy S2 about 4x and I'm fed up with it.

I saw someone post something about the polarizer and I was just wondering if it's that because its at different angles.
