    Just noticed this with my iPhone. It seems like one side has more of an edge or is less smooth. It's particularly noticeable when I drag my thumb off left edge of the phone and compare it to the right edge. The left edge seems to be rougher or noticeably more raised, or some other part like the screen is more lifted. Anyone else have this issue? I have a matte black iPhone 7, if it turns out to be specific to certain models. Yeah, it is a minor thing, but I did notice it without looking for it.

    I've attached some pics in the original post, for those curious. If you open the images in their own tab by right clicking, you can zoom in. Left side has more of a gap. I also took a pic of the bottom to compare left and right side there, where you can see a difference as well.

    I do wonder if this has an effect on waterproofing, or if it's little enough not to matter.

    Good enough for me. Seems like I'm just a bit too paranoid.

    Thanks for the responses.

    As I read these types of threads, I can't help wondering what it's like being the child, wife, husband under constant micro scrutiny: my husband works but he's got a scar on his upper thigh, my kid functions but compared with other kids he's slow, I think my wife works great but I could get a better trade-in price if I paid for a nose job......... Sorry, really no offence, my mind wanders.

    Unacceptable. They've been making the same damn phone for what, 3 years now? These should be coming out perfect

    Out of the millions of iPhones successfully produced, it happens where a unit may arrive with a defect. It happens. But it sounds as if you would have no issue perfecting the iPhone and the magnitude it takes to mass Produce a device, which most have no issues from the time when they receive it.

    I had another device (not Apple) where I ignored something similar. Started off very slightly, but when the adhesive failed, the screen kinda just popped out. I took it apart and noticed the battery bulged to twice the original size. While resolved, it's not like I had anything to lose by starting this thread.

    That's really not how manufacturing works.
