    Well the title its self explainatory.
    My iPad 4 has a barely noticeable light bleeding.

    Not noticeable in black background, or even gray.
    Only "sometimes" if I pay attention on white background (with low brightness in screen, usually light bleeding is noticeable with bright settled high but not in this case) and green.

    Its so subtle that maybe im paying too much attention and its normal.

    I have seen light bleeding in lots of devices, and in all of them it was a lot more noticeable.

    The thing is:

    Has anyone experienced that? Is normal from the new LG screens?
    I still have a week for exchange in Apple Store, so should I try another unit?

    Apart from that everything else is perfect.

    If you don't notice it and it hasn't spread, you should be ok.

    It is normal for there to be light bleed. If it is so bad that it really annoyes you and is obvious at a glance, return it. However, doing so casually could result in getting one with worst than what you had. That road would lead to more frustration.

    I've never noticed this with my iPad 4...........

    I suppose now I'll be looking for it and if I see it, it will bug the crap out of me! :eek:

    Here are some actual pictures, taken in mid ambient light, not complete darkness.

    Strangely, with black background theres no light bleeding.
    Maybe its poor screen uniformity too?

    Edit:
    Im going to exchange it.
    Now I cant stop realizing about that in normal/real life use. And for 600 € it MUST be perfect.

    It will never be perfect. Yours really isn't that bad, either. I seriously doubt you will see any bleed in actual use.

    My advice, don't return it. You'll likely end up with a worse one.

    OK.......that's good.
    I agree with above, it's not bad at all.
    But, I can't say I see that at all with mine. Sometimes I'm in nearly dark conditions and it would definitely be visible then.

    It's a gamble if a new one would be better or not..........good luck!
    Please report how it goes....

    Well, I exchanged it this morning, and I've been lucky.
    Here are some pics.
    Not noticeable bleeding. Even in darknes. Brightness @ 50% as with the other.
