    When the bottom four keys are illuminated, and if you look down the screen almost perpendicularly can you see the glow of the bottom buttons(inside the phone)? Almost as if the light is leaking from the bottom buttons.

    What are you going to do? Go to the store and request a replacement? They might laugh in your face to be honest.

    Well, maybe they will or I won't go for an exchange if someone here is kind enough here to just answer the question asked.

    The first run of the Imagio had this issue -- they later fixed it.

    I can see how it would bother someone, though it is a minor thing.

    It's Complicated
    I can see it in the image you posted.

    Send the phone to me now!

    You could return it for another but fire up the new one before leaving the store to be sure that the new one does not have the same issue. Of course you'll have to wait until all the release hubub cools down. Shucks, by then it may not bother you.

    If I had the phone I would check...but it hasn't been delivered yet.

    This is more absurd than the uproar over the dots because of the touchscreen.

    Just tested it for you and yes the menu and back arrow have light leakage while the home and search have none.

    I don't have mine yet. Maybe use some black magic marker or some black hockey tape.

    Hold the screen a certain way if it is black and you can see white dots under the screen.

    Oh noes time to return the phone! Light leak AND white dots if I hold it at the perfect angle! UNACCEPTABLE.

    @OP - You must have either come from a Storm (which is why you're sensitive to it) or have never seen the light leakage from it (or you'd be appreciative of little there is).
