At the top and bottom of the screen, a white bar is visible where the backlight is leaking. It doesn't affect the screen quality at all, and the light doesn't leak any further than the borders of the screen, but it's somewhat annoying at night. Also, it might sound silly but I do use the loudspeaker for gaming and for music sometimes. The one on mine is dreadful, just sounds tinny. Comparing it to my mothers and sisters, it sounds pretty much the same.. but with the larger holes on the newer model is it louder or any better in terms of quality?
Do the new batches have the light leak issue, I'm sure I've seen it mentioned elsewhere.
