    So I LOVE the phone, but I noticed that the upper left of my screen is bleeding a bit through, as the photos in this post will prove. So I am going to call Google to see how I can exchange(which we did for my woman's nexus 7 with no problem).

    I am going to see if I can swap it for a black one as well, I love the look of the white, but I want the rubberized sides and back than the hard plastic and glossy sides.

    Good luck next one!

    This is the curse of LCD, the light bleed can happen fairly frequently, AMOLED woudn't have this problem.

    I need to stop looking at this forum... Unless the pictures don't do it justice that really isn't that bad, I swear reading some of the posts by OCD members makes me start trying to look for faults.
    Sir Alex and Andrawer like this.

    Yeah I don't even know what to look for in those pictures? The little white speck in the corner? Seems like nothing to me. But to each their own.

    I've got an issue where the top of the screen feels very loose and makes a clicking noise when I tap it, even lightly.

    I've contacted Google and hopefully I can get an exchange/refund/replacement - this isn't on in my view.

    Left of the notification bar. There is a sphere of light that is always there. Can only see on dark screens but still...for $400+ I want a proper screen.

    I see a lot more details since I am a photographer. I am within the 2 weeks return anywho, so full refund. But I will have to wait with everyone else on the play store for their order.

    My Nexus 4 does the same I've lived with it...I do think "bleeding" it is quite common with LCD displays especially with brightness 100%

    They will be sending the return slip tonight...maybe I won't. I am not good with waiting...3-4 weeks to get another.

    If I would have known about glossy sides and plastic back on the white, I would have gotten the black rubberized back and sides like my N7

    Agreed about the white. I love the look of the white but didn't know about the glossy sides until reviews started coming out. Why do they do that??? White nexus 4 was weird too. Sigh oh well
