    I picked up my third iPhone 5 16GB today, and the screen and or digitizer is extremely visible under most lighting conditions:

    It might be hard to make out, but the edge of the screen is very visible between the edge of the glass.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    The digitizer is the thing that turns touch into recognizable input. That's the edge of the screen you're seeing, and it's completely normal. Everything with a screen that I own has this, Apple or not.

    You obviously have two iPhone 5's. Do both exhibit the same thing you're seeing?

    My iPhone 4S, and second generation iPod Touch look the same way. Nothing unusual or wrong there.

    iPhone 5 screen

    The other iPhone 5 is my wife's. You cannot see where the edge of the screen ends and the frame of the phone begins.

    Does it affect the screen in any way? No, it's only visible when the screen is off. The border on your wife's iPhone 5's LCD may be a little bit darker than the one on your black iPhone 5, giving the appearance of a borderless LCD when it's off, but when both are powered on, they look the exact same.

    I don't think you understand the point that's being made. This is normal. It is not a defect. Their's nothing wrong with your iPhone.
