    The glass is slightly lower (not flush) than the plastic bezel around it on my new iPhone 4s. Although this may seem like no big deal, it actually is pretty irritating during a phone call, as the edge of the plastic bezel kinda digs into my ear.
    How is everyone else's bezel, flush? slightly raised glass? Or slightly recessed glass like mine?
    Trying to decide if getting a replacement is a waste of time (meaning theyre all like this).
    Thanks.

    This is one of the first things I noticed on mine as well, the glass is slightly recessed against the bezel. Thought nothing of it to be honest. Got a white 32gb and came from a black 16gb iP4 which as far as I am aware was flush

    Mine is level but it has a dent is the corner. It doesn't really bother me as long as it doesn't cause a problem later on.

    mine is raised, made putting a protector skin on the back of the phone a total nightmare.

    Mine is raised, dont mind it at all. Hopefully it helps protect against direct impact that caused all the cracked glass screens/backs.

    Yeah I thought about that. I always end up passing them on to my wife so it shouldn't matter. This is my second 4s. I swapped my first because the screen was off center and was driving me nuts.

    My original 4 was flush, but when I broke the screen a few months ago and had it repaired, the new one had the glass recessed from the bezel a bit. May have been a mid-model change on the 4's?

    Doesn't bother me.

    Away from comp. Can't post pics yet.
    Sounds like this may be pretty common.
    My ip4 was flush. I do agree with some of the previous comments, that this could be helpful in the event of an accidental drop.
    My other concerns are bad signal and crude battery life, but that seems to be a common problem as well.
