    So I've had my Australian N3DS for a few weeks now and I've only noticed it now.

    There seems to be some light leaks when brightness is set to 5 and auto brightness and powersave is off in a dark room. Can anyone else confirm this? If it's just me should I be worried I have a defective set? Obviously under normal conditions I definately don't play with brightness set to 5 in a super dark room. you crazy? I love my retinas. But it's more of a nitpick because I expect better from Nintendo.

    I have a black one and no problems. But my (old) white 3DS does have the same problem.

    Could be white only. It happened on my friend's white dsi and not on my blue one. But damn I thought it would've been fixed by now. :(

    Brightness 5 in a dark room? That sounds headache inducing.

    I decided to YOLO and try it with full 3D for 5minutes.

    Not the best idea.

    if you think that's annoying try playing the OLED vita in a dark room when you have black images / background up on the screen... no light leak but black blobsssss!
