    Curious to see if any other Jet Black iPhone 7 owners notice that the sim tray isn't flush with the case. According to the video below, all 3 of their JB iPhone 7 sim trays were not totally flush with the case.

    1 minute and 32 seconds mark.

    Nilay on the verge talked about how on the ceramic Apple watches, they. Couldn't get the screen to line up flush with the ceramic casing, and for that reason he thought it was cool. lol!

    I'd like to see it in person.

    Probably just the way light reflects off the high gloss.

    The nine step grind polishing process removing ever so slight amount of casing material such that sim tray sticks up a bit? Just a thought.

    Sounds entirely plausible.

    Surely that would make the sim tray a little more recessed.

    Or it could evan be the rubber seal on the sim tray making it uneven

    Polishing would be far greater on exterior rather than in the recessed pocket.

    Good call on rubber seal. Also quite plusible. It may be a combination of things rather than one cause alone. Would be interesting to take a measurement of overal width with calipers between jet black and other color.

    yes, lol.

    1:32 is the volume button. 1:08ish is the sim card and it looks flush.

    Even if it has a small lip, thats no big deal at all. In fact some people might actually like that as it could be more or less extra to grip to the sides.

    This...probably a couple of factors that collectively make the difference.

    That mini-review is one of the best for determining what finish to go with.

    It's probable but that would mean that the person is too dumb to know what the difference is between the sim card slot and volume button...

    Mine is perfectly flush with the phone casing.

    If they are calling the sleep button the sim tray, then yes, it sticks out appropriately, LOL

    This doesn't qualify as a gate. Return it if you're not happy.
