    is a gap between the bezel and screen on an ipad mini normal? the bottom and top part are closer together, but on the left and right side of the ipad mini, the bezel is further apart from the screen

    Yeah, there's gaps on everything. Look at a MacBook Pro very closely and you'll see it too. That's the problem with any bezels that are not black.

    No, it's not normal! It's just bad workmanship. I got my ipad Mini swapped at the Apple Store as it had this gap present....dust and lint gets caught there very easily. The replacement is tightly sealed around all 4 sides. If you can live with this, fine, if not, Apple will swap it without any trouble.

    Anyone else? Others who have the same (with pics?) or others who don't have this problem?

    My iPad 3 is tight around the bezel, only my iPad mini and iPhone 5 have this gap, but with the iPhone 5 i find tons of people who have the same

    My black ipad mini has those same gaps, so I'm guessing its normal. Since its black its not as obvious unless you look closely for it, but its there.

    A small line between the glass and the bezel is normal. However, the gap should be consistent in size, which is not the case with your iPad. So if it bothers you, return it.

    Your iPad mini has very poor workmanship. The gaps are not even and uniform.

    This was painfully obvious on one of my defective iPad minis. It went back and I got it replaced.

    There is supposed to be a slight gap but it's supposed to be even and uniform.

    It sure does have a gap, and I can clearly detect that yours have a gap as I scrolled your pics up and down several times. If it's bothering you, take it back and replace it.
