    Hi guys, I just got my Lumia 1520 yesterday ๐Ÿ˜Š. Only thing is that I just noticed that the capacitive buttons are leaking light and I was wondering if anyone else has an issue like this or if I should go back and exchange it. The leak is only really visible when you look at the phone from a topish angle. Here are some pictures for reference 1520 Capacitive Backlight leak - Imgur

    Just checked mine and it is the same on the outside buttons, I thought it was normal. It certainly doesn't make any difference to the phone and can only be seen when viewed from an extreme angles and with a black background.

    well this is not a problem at all... there is a little gap so you can see it. as long as it doesn't affect your viewing there is nothing to worry about.. dont try to trade it for another or try to get it repaired.. there are phones with problems that are really annoying. you would not want to end up with one of those :)

    I think maybe you should hold off telling people to get a phone replaced/repaired until you know it is a fault.

    I haven't seen such issues on Lumia 1520 , if the capacitive button light bleeds , it must be a faulty device

    It doesn't affect the functionality of the phone. I checked mine, but only seem to be on the left side.

    I think it might be normal, it shows on my phone too. But I never try to look or play with the phone at that angle...

    True that. I actually wouldn't have noticed it until I saw the pic of the op

    This is also common on Lumia920. My opinion is that it's not worth returning for this issue if the leak is only viewable at extreme angles.

    I have the same thing when you look at mine fom the top. Its even barely seen. When facing the front I can't see it so it doesn't really bother me at all.

    I think this is normal with Lumias, as this is my 2nd Lumia (I had Lumia 900 before) and both of them have leaking lights when viewed from a specific angle at the top side.

    I got the light on mine. No problem dude, don't be so touchy about it. Just ignore and don't try to look at the phone from that angle. It causes no problem in functionality.

    Hey, congraz on your new baby! I know how you feel, just like i did..exciting and awesome.
    By the way, after denim update brightness on three buttons is so high and that's why you have that leaking. Everything is normal. Do not change or repair your device unless you have big isuess with it. Like sir said, ,,don't want to end with faulty device".

    I'm more concerned about the refurbished aspect of the phone. Thought the LCD glass was replaced because of the backlight bleed and the pressure on display when pressing around the corners.

    That and my accelerometer stops working properly after opening Lumia Camera, and speaker makes popping noises (when sounds shuts off, similar to Intel HDA issues in Linux).

    My old 920 use to let out weird popping noises too, and sometimes it would let out screeches... Nokia phones seem to have lots of defects... You never hear these many different and irritating issues happening with iPhones....just being honest

    Seems like a firmware issue because it happens right when the audio controller should be going into a suspended state.
    I am very fond of refurbished devices unless they are smartphones... But I really wanted to jump off the Lumia 925 ship before Windows 10. Moreover, the phone was $213 after shipping :OO

    The loud screeching noises happen each time I locked my phone, while the speaker going mute would happen randomly
