    So this is super ocd but has anyone noticed that their iphone 8 screen sits further away from the casing just under the volume rocker? Just wondering if this is just me...

    If i use my thumb and index finger and touch edge of each side of screen near home button it feels relatively flush. but if i place my fingers just beneath volum rocker on either side of screen to test how flush my screen is with the casing it feels slightly more raised...

    am i crazy?

    i cant see anything when i look at it. imperceptible to the eye but can just feel it along the sides under the volume button. probably nothing.

    Might just be a general thing tbh

    I thought every screen since the 6 is 2.5d, which makes the sides kind of raised slightly. This is why many glass screen protectors don't sit properly and several are made to be slightly thinner then the actual screen.

    I've noticed this personally on the 6, 6s, 7 and 8 (and all their Plus models too)

    Without Actually seeing pictures and having an understanding of exactly what you're referring too, I would almost suggest bringing it into Apple themselves to allow them to assess it. If they see it as a defect, they will replace it.
