Okay so on the first day (I bought this laptop just a couple days ago) I had this issue:

...but I think that was just some glitch when Windows was updating a lot of stuff and the Intel HD 520 crashed. Ever since I have NEVER had this happen again, have updated all drivers and OS.

But now I am thinking about this new issue: Backlight bleeding.

My laptop has a Full HD IPS panel and I heard backlight bleeding is a bigger issue here than on TN Panels. Anyway, this is the backlight bleeding on my laptop:

Its actually a bit LESS noticeable on cam than in real life.

Here I demonstrate IPS Glow vs backlight bleeding (the glow is MORE noticeable on cam than in real life)

Here I do a tilt test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyOLG0bRzfY

And here a pressure test: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SCfzL954rI

Is all of this normal? Is my monitor faulty?

I have heard others go through the hassle of sending units back only to get units with backlight bleeding on other areas of the screen instead. I dont want to be involved in a tedious game of swapsies, and remembering that I have to set all my programs up again if I return the unit for another one from amazon (its where I bought it and have a 30 day return policy) can be a headache.

Just let me know if these effects are to be expected or really weird and not supposed to be happening.

Oh and there are additional descriptions on the youtube videos for more detail.

many thanks for your expert opinions :)
