Question [Q] Light Leakage?

Hi guys, I recently purchased a note 12.2, and returned it due to a horrible screen (a red blotch in the middle + yellowing in the entire top left corner). The giant size and weight made it unusable as well.

I'm now happily using a 10.1 - 2014 edition. However there is a bit of light leakage from the bottom of the display when viewing all black images at 50% brightness or higher.

Does anyone have light leakage? Is this common or should I return it for a replacement device?

Thanks everyone, I was just curious if it was a common defect. I don't notice mine at all during normal operation. I'm enjoying the tablet so far
