Not sure why, but I am see a very small light shinning through the lower speaker grill on my HTC One (M8). It may be something behind the plastic cover that is reflecting the light since I don't see any type of LED light present (in the lower speaker area) from iFixit's teardown. Just wondering if any of you out there noticing the same thing. Thanks,

It is just a feature built into the phone, the light flashes when you get a missed calls, sms, emails and notifications.

He said lower speaker grill, not upper. Could it be bleeding through from the screen backlight?

Turned out it was a reflective flake stuck inside the speaker holes. Apparently dust can get into those small holes pretty easily...
