I just got myself a XIaomi mi3

everything was fine i but two days into use I find myself at the eng of a nagging problem..

the bottom edge of the screen is dim compared to other edges , this is apparent mostly when you are viewing white pages.and the top edge is slightly brighter..im not sure whether i can say it is backlight bleed or not..but when i loaded a full screen black page..there was a bit more light coming out of top and bit less

MY question is this a problem worth replacing the phone..? i can live with this as its not much of a deal breaker for daily use..you dont notice it often
Does it have any impications on the life of LCD , battery life etc?
Here are some pics i tried ,but the camera is poor and i dont think i was really able to capture the issue ..but i you look closely you can see the difference between top and bottom edges [top is left side btw]
sample 1
sample 2

no way i would "live" with any problem like that on a phone i just bought. if nothing other than being annoyed it doesnt look like it should, i would be worried constantly that it will get worse or spread.

if it were mine, it would have gone back the second i noticed that.

Seems it's a bit common, the replacement does have it but compared to the original one it's far less
You will notice it if you look for it., using the phone for over 2 months
No problems otherwise
