Does the iPhone 5 suffer from light leakage?

Oh dear, after the reports of some iPhone 5 devices arriving with scratches on the metal framing and back out of the box (bonus feature?), it looks like some owners of the white version are now experiencing a little bit of light leakage from the top end of their brand new smartphones...

Instead of sending a case for losing phone signal problems... they will send it for losing screen light problems...he, he... well, if apple is cleaver enough they will promote as a built in linterna...

Usually they do, remember when the GS3 was cracking around the camera/ edges of the battery cover.

Hey, PA, still keeping 9 out of 10 rating?
Still waiting for my glorious Note2, unfairly rated the same, 9/10.

If Apple is going to be claiming that "never before have [they] a built product with this extraordinary level of fit and finish" then we have every right to expect just that--I don't think its nitpicking at all, as some people have come to suggest. iPhone 5s allegedly coming out of the box with scratches already present or allegedly exhibiting light leakage doesn't exactly sound like an extraordinary level of fit and finish. If the iPhone 5 is a result of "manufacturing processes that are [Apple's] most complex and ambitious" yet, then perhaps they should consider reverting back to their old manufacturing processes. In my opinion, the should've just left the design as was, slap on a 4.3 inch screen, and called it a day.
