Re: Is this normal XZ3 build quality?

Googling S7,s8,S9,note8,note9 light bleed yeilds thousands of results, all same thing in common, it's at the edge of the curved glass.

Make of that what you will but it seems to be VERY common on curved oled displays.

I have no doubts at all, that the IP rating and the unit seals are still intact, and yes, my XZ3 does have it too, it just won't ever affect me as I don't use my phone in a way it will be visible.

That is just light being refracted from the screen to the edge of the tapered glass. It's not a crack and your phone is completely fine.

Install a pressure application then press on the phone. if the pressure rises, then your phone has no problems. If you firmly press it and no increase in pressure whatsoever, then you have a gap that lets air "fly out"

What about the gap between the screen and the telephone body

I can´t see any light "coming out" with your photo.

Seems that you are trying to make negative PR.

Just got an XZ3. There indeed are gaps between the screen and the body, those are NOT reflections. The best way to see it is to set the brightness to max, open settings/ white background and view the phone from its sides in a DARK room. Someone needs to confirm if this compromises the waterproofing of the phone

But light doesn't emit from the rear of sides of oleds, LCDs yes, seeing light through gaps indicates light leak, oleds are forward facing light only.

Sorry, i was partly wrong. I read that the light is due to reflection and visible at extreme angles because of the gaps. Do you think this compromises the waterproofing?

It's light refracting from the edge of the glass.

No light bleed, no gaps, still water proof.
