I've seen two different units and in both of them when the backlight/screen is on I can see intermittent strips of light through the crack where the silver rim meets the glass. On my old iPhone I could see a tiny strip of light sometimes (I can't remember exactly where it was) but nothing at all this obvious. The strips go all the way down the side. It's very visable at night when the screen is on. I just ssumed I had a defective unit until I saw someone else's in a different country and the same thing is there. It's like the rim isn't 'stuck' to the glass properly.
