Edge lit led bleeding

I just purchased a new samsung UN78HU9000 tv and have been loving it. I've had it about 2 weeks and trying to determine what is acceptable as far as led bleeding. I have tried to gently massage the tv but still have slight white banding and possibly led bleeding in the lower left corner. I have attached a pic that is quite grainy since I took with the lights off to show the effect. Do you guys think it is bad enough to warrant a return? Do I wait a while for the screen to break in? This is via netflix through samsungs smart hub on the tv so it's not coming from a connected source rather over the air via high speed wifi, over 100mbps. Let me know what you think and what's the best way to go about this issue.

For Full screen broadcast TV viewing and 4x3 movies just Pull the backlight level down until it's acceptable. Then adjust the Smart LED setting.

For 16x9 widescreen movies, make sure you are in "Cinema" Picture Mode and make sure that "Cinema Black" is set to "ON".

You should be good to go!
