My Xperia Z Ultra has minor light leakage from the top of the screen. Visible at the top and also the top left and right.
Its not evident when the phone is held straight but becomes visible (these areas appear brighter at an angle and you can see a clear source of light) when the phone is held at an angle. I cant recollect whether I had this from day 1.
Its been about two months with this device.

Is this normal? I do know that minor backlight bleed or leakage is to be expected from an LCD screen but I thought that applied to bigger panels like monitors. But is this normal for a phone? All my previous android devices were Samsungs with AMOLED displays so I'm not sure whether I'm just getting worried over nothing.

To test this, take a pure white background at fullscreen and check the corners of the screen at different angles.
Kindly post your findings here.

Yup, I have it too. Not really noticeable unless I look for it though, so it doesn't bother me.

Is it at the top of the screen for you? Is it visible when you tilt the screen or when the phone is horizontal..like when placed on a table?
For me the top most area of the screen appears brighter with light shining through when I hold the phone vertically at a 45 degree angle or when the phone is on a table.

When I'm holding the phone straight on, directly facing it, it doesnt seem to show much.

No, nothing like that.
