    So I do not have a light leak through the USB port like others but most of the bottom of the screen between the case and screen I do. It's on either side of the USB port. I don't really feel a gap but its hard to say. Do you think it's something I should exchange the phone over?

    Yup, eventually it will annoy you to death: exchange it.

    Yeah it's definitely something I notice along with the screen not being flush to the case in a number of places while being flush around most of the screen... Will go tomorrow morning and see what they say.

    I noticed that a bit too but it really really doesn't bother me.

    No, a non issue. All the 8X leak a tad bit of light through the USB port. Both mine do it, it is minimal.

    I'm still debating whether to take it in or not. Like I said in the first post, it's not a leak through the USB port, it's the bottom edge of the screen on either side of the USB port. It is almost the entire length of the bottom edge of the screen. It's only noticeable in low light conditions, I'm just afraid there is a gap and dust will eventually get in behind the screen.

    I'd exchange it.

    I don't have any noticeable light leak from the screen or the USB port. I probably wouldn't have exchanged it if there was a bit from the USB port, but the screen would bug me.

    Been trying to live with this but noticed last night the leak has spread across the entire bottom of the screen which would indicate it's getting worse and probably won't get any better. :) Will try exchanging it this afternoon, hopefully ATT still has phones in stock.
