Surprisingly, yes. But since you're holding the tablet in portrait mode, the white bar is on the left now. But yes, along that edge the white will be brighter than further inwards.This I don't get. So, if you have a largely white screen you see a white bar at the bottom? Light bleed is always white to my understanding; how can you see light bleed on a white screen?
And I didn't notice any wrinkles on any of the tablets I was handling - but then, I never was looking for it.
