iPhone X not entirely 'flat' near (bottom) edge?

    Hi,

    A small thing I noticed... I have reachability enabled on my iPhone X. As such, I swipe down quite a lot near the bottom edge of the screen.

    Doing so, I noticed that there is an ever so slight 'edge' of the glass panel, really minute but it seems to be there. It much easier to feel but looking closely, you can also see it.

    On inspection, it seems that both the glass panels on the phone have a raised edge around the full perimeter. It is not the rubber gasket lining the screen or the transition between the screen and the frame, it really is the glass itself. It could be an effort to prevent scratches?

    Is this present on other devices or do I have poorly manufactured panels?

    Mine has a moderate gap, I can slide in a piece of paper and it goes 2mm in

    Thanks, but is was not really referring to the gap between the glass and the frame.

    Instead, at least on my device, it seems the glass itself curves ever so slightly up near the edges. The swipes across the edge to activate reachability really make it stand out...

    Oh excuse me, now I understand what you mean, I can confirm that on mine the glass is flush!
