Problem it's not. That's normal.
You can go into settings and change the duration of how long it stays lit if that bothers you.

Yeah, the Grey one doesn't do that. Very crisp back arrow or menu button only light up. No light "bleed" through at all.

My white one does it but it's not anywhere near as bad as in that pic. It's barely noticeable.

I wouldn't normally chip in here as I may be in danger of voicing my opinion of white phones (let alone non existent Titanium Blue ones ;-) but I have a solution.

You could get very, very good at painting miniatures (should only take a few years and possibly some gene therapy to aid coordination and muscle control), find a white lacquer that exactly matches the finish of the phone and paint around the buttons.

Really?
IMO, I disagree.
Also, I've changed the duration of the light illumination so if it weren't for this thread I wouldn't have noticed it at all.
Some "issues" are non issues to me.
That tiny bit of light bleed is not worth me returning my phone.

Honestly, I think it looks cool, its like a "halo" effect. But hey, if your that picky, get a Titanium blue version or get some white out if your that desperate.

I'm so glad I despise white as a phone colour. Still have to see this titanium blue one though. Have only seen grey in the titanium. The S3 had pebble blue of course. Perhaps therein lies the confusion.

Sorry if I upset you. I do like the Ti Grey. I was just hoping to clear up any misconception. It looks like pebble blue on a black and white screen if that helps.

LOL! You've already made my day! And it's just beginning.

The only way my day can ever be undone now, is if we lost to the Patriots today.... Funny, I've always rooted for the Patriots. I guess some of that hometown pride is getting to me... GO TEXANS!!!!

Okay back to your regular programming... I hate to divert this thread because of my ADD... :P
