Android Central Question

On the note 9, the tiny black borders around the display have a tiny tiny tiny tiny tiny gap between the metal frame. Does anyone else see the display through this gap? I noticed it on two note 9s and one even in the samsung store. NOTE: this is only visible on a bright screen, preferably white.

Just checked from all angles with screen on full brightness with white background but no light bleed or anything else unusual.

I have it on mine. It's pretty bad. I'm trying to decide if it will bother me enough to return the phone or not. If this phone cost me $200 or less I would be able to overlook it, but at $1,000 I don't know if I can.

Some say to turn the brightness down, but I can see the light at low brightness also. If I turn it down to about 10% it's better, but then I don't enjoy the beautiful screen.

Not forgiveable at the price of $1000

ASK for replacement

What if it was like $175 less?

Never experienced this on any of my phones. Sorry to the ones that have. My OCD would go into fits if that happened lol

I stumbled on this forum because I noticed it on my Note 9 too. Brightness 10% in a dark room. I was panicking at first but I think its because of my screen protector. I found this video on YouTube which explains the similar situation on Note 8. I don't want to take off my screen protector so I'll try to live with it. But I really hope the reason is what's explained in the video and not an actual manufacturing defect. https://youtu.be/iRg-UGFTJJ4

In that case it is the screen protector. But in mine and most everyone else's case, it's a manufacturer defect.
