    Hello,
    I've had my Pre Plus for a good 4 weeks now, and I've noticed about a few weeks ago, that when I was in a dark environment, using my pre, I could see a bit of the backlight from the screen, coming through from the sides of the phone, then today I noticed the whole entire sides of the phone lit up fron the backlight of the screen... Has anyone else ever noticed this?
    Thank You

    Good ol' light leak. Join the club, very common in orignal Pre's and apparently the plus ones too..

    Yes... it's a common thing to notice when you first start playing with the device in a dark environment.

    They show up especially if youve dropped your pre and even hair line fractured it.

    I don't have this problem with my Pre+ circa march, 2010. Why is it a problem if you do?

    I'm guessing they colored the plastic before rounding the corners, and that the effect of molding the plastic (stretching it) decreased the coloration causing light to bleed through. I've had it on all 5 of my Pre's.

    I have this too. It usually temporarily worsens when I open the slider or press the home button.

    Since the face is glass now I suspect it won't.

    I've had this on both my Pre's since day one. I also had the same issue with my HTC Touch Diamond. Never really bothered me on the Pre though. I think it is because I only notice it looking from side angles. The HTC I saw it straight on and it really bugged me.
