Backlight bleed or light leakage.
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.
