P50 4K screen bleeding issue

2016-11-29, 1:41 AM

I feel that my 4K display on my new P50 suffers from a relative high bleeding issue as well as brightness distribution problem (the brightness at the edges of the screen is somehow lower), as shown in the attached pictures.

I was wondering if this is a screen defect and if I should call support. Anyone else has these issues?

It's hard to tell from your photos how the real world image appears (the camera emphasizes the backlight illumination). What are your backlight settings? How does the screen look with a black background with normal room lighting?


The 4k screens always seem to exhibit some minor bleeding around the area near the hinges. Also, the overall brightness can, and does,  vary across the screen. I believe that what you are seeing is "normal" for these screens.
