Is the screen on your iPad 2 “leaking” light?

no problem.. apple users are used to the new crappy mistakes and are willing to pay more for less just to be "cool"

So you've been following Apple users all along. You're not a busy person, aren't you?

The ipad 2 shouldnt have that defect for what its worth. Android hitman is right, its just like the antenna problem with the iphone.

This report as usefull as it is will help nobody,the apple drones will still buy it despite it being faulty and a minimal upgrade while if any of them is alert enough to complain to apple about the fault apple will simply ignore them or claim they are 'looking at the screen the wrong way'

sounds just like android fanboys and the 10 pages of known issues on their phones.

Dont hate just cuz apple puts out expensive products with stupid defects. (antenna on iphone)

My goodness. There is no solid report as to how many devices have this issue, yet you already sound like like you're certain that all ipad2 have this issue. BGR also has posted this article and said that their two ipad2 units don't have this issue at all.
Haters will hate.

My goodness! You always scream that all androids have force closes all the time and plum unusable. Yet I never experience that. Typing from my Droid right now...

I can't wait, I can't FREAKING wait for the excuses to start rolling in from the iFanboys. A hundred bucks more (or the same price) for a product with no reported defects doesn't sound so bad now, does it? :)

Every new apple product rolls out with defects. . . just another reason to push for the next upgrade.
Apple has mastered the yearly upgrade ;)

Oh totally. I'm in need of some lulz. I WILL NOT BE DENIED!
27. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Will your excitement will be shortlived. The ipad2 is still selling out :) Try harder :)
31. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Oh no. The excitement remains, because it was never about how many ipads would sell, but because of the incoming ifanboys rushing in to defend this very obvious hardware issue. :)

Ah, the little insignificant things that losers like you find pleasure in, hahahaha. The ipad2 is still way ahead of the game, and it would take more than this to even affect it a tiny weenie bit :)
44. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
"Tiny weenie bit"
I'm sorry, were you talking about your tiny peen? :)
26. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Which product are you talking about that has no known issues? Also, this is an isolated issue, not all ipad2 have this problem. You're a stupid moron.

What did you expect from using cheap adhesive to glue the screen on. Thanks Apple for making my Xoom look even better.
5 bucks says the first excuse is "that's not a defect, thats one of the many new visual effects we added to the next generation iPad"

Oh my God. You guys are literally on here just to talk about how much you hate Apple and not about technology at all. It's the same comments over and over again. What happened to everybody on PhoneArena?
7. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Hey. If Phonearena gives us a shiznit ton of Apple articles, you betcha we're going to comment the hell out of them.
22. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
But it does not mean that your posts would be free from hate, bitterness, jealousy, and biases :)
28. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Who's hateful? I'm not. Who's bitter? I'm not. Who's jealous? I'm not. Who's biased? Well...maybe a little.
I don't hate Apple products. I hate those who declare Apple to be perfect innovators. Or who jump to Apple's defense every time a major issue comes from their products with increasingly irrational arguments.
I'm not bitter. I've never owned an Apple product, and Apple could outsell the Raze and I wouldn't mind. Again, it's the attitude of iFanboys I dislike.
I'm not jealous. I'm perfectly happy with my X. It does everything I need it to and it does it well.
The bias comes from being a Motorola fan because all of their products have worked tremendously well for me. I'm also a sucker for the underdog that's trying its heart out to be the best it can be.
Do I use hyperbole? Yes. Do I shine a spotlight on what Apple does wrong? Hell yeah. But why? Because if no one does, then the illusion is maintained that Apple can't be beat because of the clamorous bleating from those who love its products.
14. LionStone (Posts: 745; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
Well the thing is, everybody slams anything worth slamming. As long as Apple continues with its shenanigans which to many of us, insults our intelligence technologically wise, they will get slammed. People give their reasons for not 'buy'ing into what they're selling, but people think they are just hating for hating sake. But yes, some do say things just to get a rise out of others, just the way it is...just don't feed the trolls ;)

How does it insult your intelligence if you dont use the product?
Anyways Apple is shipping these iPads out in MASS volume at a backbreaking paste, return it for a new one and move on with your life.
20. LionStone (Posts: 745; Member since: 10 Dec 2010)
Because as a consumer I compare products against each other and when it comes to Apple products, to me, they fall short because they do things to limit their products which is what I'm talking about. Case in point: Why didn't Apple mention their RAM or cameras on NEW ip2? When they deliberately hold back information so as not to bring attention to their shortcomings, that my friend, is insulting the tech. intelligence of the consumer.
21. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
If they did mention it, you would still say that you're insulted anyway. So what's your point?

lol, like 3/4ths of the articles lately have been fluff pieces on the ipad2. many of which should have all been under 1 comprehensive ipad2 review instead of 10 different articles just to keep its name in the spotlight.
so ya.. we get total monopoly on making fun of it.
it was an underpowered over priced piece of junk from the start
it has no serious upgrades other than the dual core chipset.
it has a 1mpx rear camera.. i mean REALLY.
it still doesnt do much different than the phones.
still doesnt run flash
still not really customizable
and now the screens arent put on right.
lots and lots and lots to make fun of.
