    Anyone else finding some small debris building up where the glass meets the aluminum on the back in that little crevice?

    Yes, this is what I meant by the fit and finish not being as good as the 4/4S, but at least it's not really noticeable and certainly not an eyesore like actual nicks/scratches on the aluminum band and backing. I'm just happy that I have flawless aluminum band and backing.

    The fit and finish on the 3G/3GS was 20X worse.

    Yeah it is really hard to find a crevice like that on the 4S

    my replacement had some kind of glue on the top crevice. I used a needle and pushed it sideways.

    Unless they improve the fit and finish/gap of the crevices, things are going to get stuck in there. I'd use the needle method if you're OCD enough about it, but I'm just happy I got a flawless metal housing.

    At your own risk though. Aim wrong and you'll end up scratching the aluminum body.

    I've noticed the same thing on my black iPhone 5, but my iPhone 4 had the same thing going on between the glass and the thin rubber (?) band surrounding it. It really is no big deal and you wont' notice unless you're constantly inspecting your phone up close. Just chill, use the phone, and enjoy. It's an object that is with you all day, every day, so expect it to *not* remain flawless.

    It's absolutely normal for every iPhone released to date.
    It brings the nut jobs out. Most of it is pure BS.
