    What is the beat way of cleaning the little gap between the glass and the metal, i have a piece of dust/dandruff stuck that water nor wiping will remove. I kind of want to use a toothepick or something to scrape it out, it's big enough to notice and its driving me crazy.

    Toothbrush is too coarse, not fine enough tip. Q-tip didn't work, tried wet and dry. It's really stuck in there.

    You sure that's something stuck? A few people have had defects from the factory that look exactly like that. That also looks like it's on the edge, not stuck in the gap.

    Maybe, but im pretty sure it wasnt there before, while we're on the topic the iphone 6 plus is absolute garbage at taking macro pictures, it would much rather focus on the stupid reflection of the light

    You mentioned a toothpick, what about a small sewing needle? If you live near a hobby/craft store you can get a pair of jewelry tweezers, which come in handy for any small jobs dealing with electronics.

    Tried paper, too scared to put a sewing needle to it. I need a magnifying glass, but the more i look at it i think it's like a flake of the space grey finish came off leaving the raw aluminum underneath with the way it catches the light

    Bummer... I know that must stink. :(

    If your comfortable attempting it, maybe should try using a Sharpie like posted in this thread? http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/chipped-out-of-box.1888317/page-2#post-21420200

    To be honest, I'd probably do the same. :)

    This seems like the ultimate first world problem, but if you own a space grey and look at it frequently it absolutely will distract you like crazy and im usually not a perfectionist

    To be honest that looks more like a chip.

    But if it is actually something in the gap, try the corner of a post-it note. That's what I've used on my iPhone 6. Stick it in the gap, and slide it all the way around the corner until it pushes the speck out.

    Microfiber towel with long fibers. That's the only thing you should be using.
