    EDIT: Thanks for the response. This is merely the back light from your softkeys. Unless anyone has pics to say otherwise, this is closed... :D

    I am on my second droid due to various reasons... but i can't remember on my last one being able to see lines on the bottom of the screen where the backlight shines threw..... is this normal?

    also in this image below note where the shadow from the home++ icons end is the end of the display.. a thin line of black, then backight!

    should i return this one too? is yours like this?

    edit: This is looking down on the screen......

    This is normal. That's not the backlight shining through, it's the LEDs that light up the 4 capacitive buttons.

    It's normal. Every Droid I've seen has it. It's really minor anyway. A slight glowing when you look down at the screen from an extreme angle? Whatevs...
