    is anyone else experiencing light leakage around the bottom of the glass? (see attached pic.) I had a similar issue on like 3 thunderbolts before I got tired of that phone and the light leakage and sold it, now i see it again... It's really only noticiable when I am in a dark or dimly lit room.. but it's still pretty annoying.. I am pretty sure I am not the only one but if it seems I am in the minority I will have to look into getting it replaced..

    I don't have any there, but I have light leak at the bottom of the screen, as seen in this video. Is this present in your devices? Or should I be nitpicky and seek a replacement.

    I know a small amount of that is normal. That leakage is present on my Thunderbolt. However, with the Bolt I have to tilt the screen considerably to see it. With my rezound I can see it during regular use, with only a little tilting.

    It seems like that is very common in a lot of phones. I noticed it in the Bionic I had for a little while, my TB has it, my D1 and D2 both had some. I think it's really just normal with the way the screens and lighted buttons are put together, and not a defect. Don't sweat it is my advice. If the phone works well, be happy.

    thanks! I just checked my rezound, and under the home screen button is a pin hole with white light leaking through it. its most noticeable at night when the lights are lit up. But I'm going back to best buy to change it today.

    I mean really! I put a case on mine withing minutes of buying it, if I had light leakage I would never know it.

    But this is getting ridiculous! People are going to return phones because of a tiny bit of light leakage that can only be noticed in a darkened room?

    You guys seriously are obsessing over NOTHING!!

    The only reason is I have had plenty of other htc phones and motorolas and never had an issue. My ottterbox for it does not cover it. And every time I hit the home button I see it underneath. It's annoying. And shouldn't be there. I will take my chances with another one. If that's the same than fine. But Best Buy is good with returns..

    There seems to be a lot of that here. There are some serious issues with the various phones, but some people get so obsessed over the most minor things. I wonder how they handle the important life issues.

    I never noticed this on my 2 year old Droid, but after reading your post I looked in the closet and saw the same thing. I wonder if Verizon will still take it back, considering the enormity of this problem.

    I hope so for your sake! They couldn't expect you to use it knowing how flawed it is! ;)

    First off I haven't taken my mine back I was just gauging how common/rare the issue is... I had the droid, droid 2, droid X. And never had the issue but my tbolt did so it seems to be more an htc issue.

    And secondly its their money if someone isn't happy with the quality of an item for the price they paid its their right to be able to take it back.

    My phone doesn't have it at all. Only way I can see it is if I tilt my phone WAY up like in the video. But nobody holds a phone like that when they are using it.

    I had the smiley face light leak under the glass. Tomorrow was my 14 day window so I took it in and exchanged it. No light leak anymore! Yahoo!!! Plus my battery in the first phone I got first day was a 3.7v and ran at 3.73, my new one is 3.8v but it is running at 4.302v. A bit odd.

    So I wonder how many users are going to be in the closet with their phones as a result of this thread?

    That's really odd... wonder if that 3.8v is available anywhere.

    All our phone batteries are 3.7V, and charge to full around 4.2V. That's normal.
