    i know i haven't! I have ZERO light leak, and absolutely no case cracks (although it may be too early to tell)

    is a silent improvement to the build quality of the 3G S a reality? I hope so!

    please post here if you've found any defects

    I posted this in the thread specifically about this, but there are definitely screen issues, at least with some:

    Interesting. My 3G S next to a 3G at full brightness look nearly identical. You can notice a difference but it isn't at all extreme. Heck, I didn't even know there was a difference at all until people started posting it.

    Damn Macrumors making me be OCD about my Apple products! First my slanted uMB keys and now this!@:p

    I'm waiting for my Apple store to open. Returning my 3GS. Spongy home button and faulty headphone socket.

    That is certainly a defect. Here are my iPhones...

    light in the room, white balance on the camera, etc

    many things could cause that other than the screens being different. I'm not saying they're not, but remove some variables and try it again.

    It also could be this: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=517938

    Your faulty headphone socket, what is happening exactly?
    Mine, when you move the headphone lead side to side (move not pull, tug etc) the volume crackles and some times goes to maximum volume. :eek::eek:
