    Does anyone else have dust under their iPhone glass? It's small but annoying - and now that I've seen it, I can never 'unsee' it. :(

    i've seen other threads with this issue. take it to an apple store. they'll pop the back cover off and clean it for you. not sure where the dust originates from, but just know that the no iphone ever made is dust proof.

    That quality control over at ol' Foxconn was worse than I thought.

    The workers tend to agree with you.

    This was a replacement for one with light leak. That one didn't have any dust, just an annoying amount of light coming from the bezel. It's like a pick-your-poison scenario.

    I'm highly considering going back to my iPhone 4.

    I went to the Genius Bar yesterday. They saw it and swapped it without any questions. The let me look over the new phone close. It all looked great, until today, when I noticed what is either two dead pixels or two pieces of dust. I might just live with it for a couple months until they hopefully get their quality control together.
