    That is normal for the white model.

    I kind of like it.

    It reminds me of Rick James' aura on Chappelle's Show.

    This won't fix the problem but it will solve it. There's an option to turn those lights off completely, which is what I did, and I haven't missed that feature yet. They pop on and off with every touch so it was distracting.

    It is normal for the white Note II and even the white S3. Most of the video reviews I saw on youtube has that too, because they were on the white model. I was kind of disappointed when I got my titanium grey that it doesn't do that!

    I'll try to borrow someone's phone to take a pic of mine.

    OK i lied! I've NEVER noticed it. You have to have the phone in almost complete darkness to see it. Even in moderately low light you can't see it. Had my friend over with her iphone and it took us turning out all the lights to see it.

    To me it's not an issue because i've never noticed it until now. I don't generally sit in the dark with my phone ....

    Yup. To me, not complaint worthy. Again, I don't sit in the dark playing with my phone .

    Oh and my friend was like "They're complaining about THAT!?"

    my wife's phone bleeds a lot (exactly like in the OP's photo), in brightly lit areas--no need to go hunting for a "dark corner" and scrutinize the thing. It was the first thing I noticed when we got her white phone home...

    That's interesting. Mine you really DO have to put it in the dark to see it. Even then it's not terribly easy to see.

    I guess it's like white clothing.. don't wear a white shirt/bathing suit and get wet ! LOL!!!

    I bought the white thinking what ever color book cover Case i use would look cool and i was right. The dark Grey one looks great on the white Note 2. I have not notice the lights but now that i do i think it looks pretty cool.

    Really? Upload a picture. Because just about every white Note 2 I've seen does exactly that.

    And no you don't have to sit in a pitch black room to notice it. Just being in the shade outside on a sunny day it is 100% visible.


    Edit:

    I think this thread is an excellent opportunity to point out a common phenomenon that happens daily in all forums, particularly in Smartphone boards.

    People have varying levels of perception and attention to detail. The light bleed on these buttons, and how some people claim their phone does not exhibit this problem yet everyone else does, is a perfect example of this. It really frustrates me though when something is presented that is fact, and people use their own subjective experiences to override that reality. It makes it very difficult to objectively determine what is and isn't.

    It does look cool with that glow, but it will always be in the back of my mind that it's a defect.
    I have the Titanuim Gray and looks great! Chose the Gray for different reasons, not this.

    I consider it a defect like when the white iPhones had LED light bleed that affected flash photos. ie, white plastic normally used for cell phones isn't totally opaque, apparently.

    Yuck, I hate this on my phone. Does the Titanium Grey one do this? I also have light leaking from the home button, too...like a small hole allows light to leak thru it. Will AT&T let me change from white to titanium grey?

    gray notes don't bleed light around the buttons.

    No the Titanium Grey does not do this. Here's a picture I just took for reference. Please note, I had absolutely NO other lights on. This is the "pitch dark" setting people refer to, and notice how there is 0 light bleed:




    Now compare that to the one in the OP's picture, which appears to be in a well lit room. GG

    My wife has the white S3 and likes the lighting effect.

    Us techies that understand how and why it does it are the ones complaining loudest.

    To me it is like jpeg artifacts and poorly compressed audio. A tiny bit more effort in the production goes a long way to improving the final product.
    Knowing this drives me nuts the same way long fingernails do when they scrape a chalk board.
    Samsung could have put a tiny more effort in masking the button lights better. Maybe this is why we have the Titanium Grey option

    I personally like the effect better. I had both colors and it was something that I missed with the titanium gray. I don't see it as a defect at all. The white model is just more transparent than the gray model.
    If I were never here, you would never know.
