    recieved my iPhone XR and I absolutely love it however when inspecting my phone under light I can see that the display glass is not even as can be seen in the photos, where you see the lines of the blinds in the reflection you can notice that the glass looks uneven, is this normal? Anyone else have this?

    Is the actual screen image distorted or just the glass? Very strange, never noticed that on any iPhone I’ve ever had (and I am very picky about screens). Maybe a defect due to the new screen tech they are using.

    Yeah, take that screen protector off. You didn't get it aligned well at all. That would drive me nuts.

    The display is perfect, just the glass and I don’t have a screen protector on it just a Spigen liquid crystal case

    Lol, maybe, my XS max doesn’t have this issue, I might return the phone to Apple for a replacement, the XR is a beautiful phone just wished it never had this imperfection

    There's clearly a screen protector on your phone.

    Then why's there a gap in the glass on the right top corner? Just trying to figure out the picture you posted.

    That's a screen protector on your phone. I mean look at the top right and right next to your thumb for obvious proof of it. Either that or you have the most poorly constructed phone ever made.

    Screen protector or no screen protector? Laural or Yanny? Black & Blue or Gold & White?

    Look at how the glass on the left appears to be bowing in next to his thumb.

    I see it. Wonder why the OP can't see it.

    There is no screen protector I can promise you, I think it’s the reflection I’ll try uploading a better picture

    The million dollar question is why would he deny having a screen protector on when it's so clearly obvious that he does because of how poorly been it's installed.

    Even without the poorly aligned top right corner, it's obvious when you look at the earpiece speaker. That's a screen protector. Either you're lying about it, or someone put one on your phone before or after you received it and you don't know the difference.

    The arrow is what we were looking at. Now that you have the case off we can see much better and it looks fine.

    That’s the reflection of the top of my blind, it’s where my blinds end that’s why it looks like a gap

    It looks fine without the screen protector. I don't see what you are saying.

    I mean, watch a video and see if it distorts in that same area.
