I've got light leakage where the capacitive buttons are...slightly on each side (very slight) where the glass comes to the plastic housing and also if I put the phone upside down at a sharp angle, I can see the light coming from the capacitive buttons to the screen...
Not sure if I'll do anything about it...I'd exhange it if I could get a different colour but other than this it's pretty perfect so I will probably keep it

Is it worth exchanging for?
Anyone have any pics of their light leakage...again mine is really slight and it only kind of bothers me...if I could get a Cyan I'd probably exhange it but since it's unlocked I have to deal with Nokia direct and it seems they have a very limited supply of phones

i have a small light leak onto the screen above the windows button, i didn't notice it until i went to the "app highlights" app and the screen looked washed out, that is the only app that does that on my phone so far. anyway after looking for the cause i found a unrelated light leak that you can only see if you look at it from the top end of the phone. i'm probably gonna just go with it after all i would loose the phone for two weeks and have to use my old i phone which now is just being used like the junk drawer in the kitchen. sorry for the image quality they were taken with the "kitchen junk drawer". is it worth getting fixed?

2ND phones has all the same issues if not more leak and ****ty battery. At least this time, I don't have to wait 2wks without the phone. But I still had to wait 2wks for the replacement to arrive. Hoping its worth it though.

Your pics are *EXACTLY* like mine....doesn't bother me terribly...might wait a bit to see if any other issues arise...the phone seems to be fine otherwise and I'd hate to have it sent back and get a worse one back...
Anyone know if Nokia will do an advanced replacement (take credit card info and send you a box to send defective one back)?

i might wait 6-8 months to send it in for repair of the light leak when it is closer to the end of the one year warranty with nokia to have it fixed, they should have a better handle on their warranty repairs by that time. and if they don't then they are not the company i thought they were.

I have some leakage at the side of the phone, it really bothers me. But i'm not sure with returning it because I really like the phone and I don't want to wait for a new one. But, I'm a bit scared that dust will be entering trough the ''leak' spot or water.
