Perfectly normal. You really have to consider this. If you need to go into a dark room or cover the lens to accentuate the light bleed, how much of an issue is it? If the concern is if this will somehow get worse over time, it wont. However, if it is effecting your actual filming, then contact the GoPro Support Team and they can give you some options. 99.9% of the time, it's not worth worrying about or dealing with the hassle of an exchange. The LCD on your camera isn't like a computer monitor, TV, or phone screen. The main function is to be able to get to settings and frame your shots, not as a main media player.

Same issue over here. Mine is even perfectly noticeable in daylight conditions at <50% screen brightness. That's pretty disappointing. Did any of the mentioned replacement units finally come without such bleeding?
Anyway, I noticed it to be less severe when some pressure is applied to the screen margins (especially the lower one) e.g., when my GoPro sits in the frame/case. Thus, it seems some screen parts are not completely glued together. Any suggestions on that?

after i started this post, customer service was contacting me via email and did a replacement for My gopro because like they said that this bleeding is a production issue.
The replaced gopro i got is perfectly fine and does not have and bleeding.
Btw: If the front display isnt working anymore and is display is blank but all other things are working fine (Main Display, Camera as ist self, Card Slot) so it also didnt affect to the hole performance of the camera so it will be also normal ??
