I just got my LG G Pad (GPE) yesterday. At normal operating brightness levels in daylight, it looks just fine. However, last night I was watching a movie in a dimly lit environment and had the brightness down a tad more. I noticed some odd pattern on the right side of my screen when in landscape mode. It happened only when there was a light or white background. I snapped a photo of it. Can anyone tell me if this is normal for the G Pad? Maybe I just have to keep the brightness up a tad more? Or should I return it for a new one?

I contacted Google. Once I sent them this photo, they said it was pretty abnormal so requested I send it back. Fortunately, they have a cool return policy where they send me the replacement before you send your defective one back, so I won't be without a tablet for a few days.

I have the exact same issue on mine, not too bothered with the issue. Did the replacement one has the same problem?
