Hey guys, I have a red nexus 5.

When the notification led blinks, it shines through a portion of the red plastic near the led.

Does this happen to anyone else or just the red n5s?

edit: Forgot to mention it's most noticeable when the room is dim/dark.

I don't have an easy way to take a picture atm. Think of it like this, when the led blinks, it shines through a portion of the plastic band around the notification led area.

So, a part of the plastic band right above the mini usb connector lights up.
