Uneven backlight (spotlighting)... From an angle?

    So, I made the switch from 9.7" to 12.9." Too early to tell if it was worth it, but since it was a free "upgrade" (Craigslist), I'm pretty excited.

    But! I noticed some pretty severe spotlighting on the right side, as soon as I turned on the device. I'll attach some photos. It's not totally noticeable (it is a little) from head-on, but from a "below" angle, it's pretty severe. Is this normal? I do use it from moderately "weird" angles when taking notes, but if this is just how backlighting works, I won't bother with a return.

    Thanks!

    That is definitely not normal.

    This is what mine looks like:

    Great - I'll see if I can get it replaced ASAP.

    Thanks!

    Edit: Replacement on the way!

    Finally got it back... perfect. They told me they hadn't seen an issue like that before, but they sent it to a different location that normal to be sure it wasn't a batch-wide issue. Anyway... I'm happy!
