May be its a standard manufacturing or just slight issue with my handset.
The lens cover over the telephoto lens is little raised compared to the side of the normal wide lens. Not a problematic thing but just an observation. Let me know if other users have noticed it too. May be that's how the design is.

get it to be fixed or replaced.
I would not do this since there is a chance you'll get one of the (louder, since all do hiss) hissing or yellow tint screen iPhones. Repairing may be an option tho, but I wouldn't even go through all the hassle. Ultimately it's up to you.

How about other users check theirs' and post pictures from same angle. May be its common. Because its extremely subtle.

My only curiosity is to find more such assembly errors so as to know the level of quality control. Whether apple has relaxed control or it's a routine with every manufacturing.

Mine is level all the way around. Not sure if it is worth replacing the device and taking a chance of getting a bad replacement.
m never getting it replaced, I'm sure maṅy handsets might have such issues.

Simple logic here please.

The lense cover is manufactured flat. If it is sticking up on one side then Something is stopping it sitting flush be it debris or a casing fault.

Chances are your iPhone will not be water resistant as advertised.

Solution - warranty swap

It is going to be a tough ordeal making them appreciate but I'll go ahead and get it checked.

Apple store is a bit far off from my home, that's why I was avoiding. Anyways I'll start with contacting customer care.

Hi drjumbo,
Not a chance in hell I'd keep that phone and neither should you. Get a new replacement from Apple that looks exactly like what they advertise on their website....
