    I just noticed that the front facing camera shifted slightly to the left. Theres now, what appears to be a glue/adhesive I'm assuming showing. Anyone else have this issue?

    Nope, but to be fair my phone is white, I think it would be a lot harder for me to see.. Lol

    It looks like there is a chip in your ear piece.. Heck I only noticed cause your picture is enlarged. Lol and ear piece?? That's the best name I could come up with.. Lol .. It's late, I'm not at my best .. Going to bed..

    Went in today and they said as long as it doesn't affect using it then it wouldn't warrant a replacement. Irritating but I guess its not too bad. Hopefully it moves, now I know its there; its going to bug me.

    That's redicilious answer from Apple, you paid a lot of money for that phone, and you should deserve a replacement device

    I have the same issue, thought about taking it to Apple but the camera works fine and I never use the front camera anyway..... But now that I think about it this might affect my resale value so perhaps I should take it in and see if I have better luck.

    Quite a few threads about this in the past months. Generally it seems that Apple will replace the screen or the phone to address it.

    Sounds like you werent aggressive enough. you paid for a premium product, and it should be flawless.

    So I took my phone to Apple and the genius looked it for like 2 seconds and said "yeah I see the problem" he quickly arranged to have my front glass replaced. I left the phone for 2 hours and picked it up. Camera is perfect now :D

    The way he didn't hesitate it seems to me that more and more people have been going in with this issue and they are being told to replace these. So if I were the OP I would give it another shot.

    I ended up sending it in for an "electrical issue" and got a brand new one. Now this one is moving. Whatever it hasn't effected quality yet.
