    Not complaining but I'm curious if anyone else is has this "issue." The left side is much more flush between the glass back and steel band. Running a finger over, it feels very close to one continuous surface. On the right side, it's as if there's a bigger "rim" of the steel band—the glass back curves and insets into the rim rather than conjoin with the band like on the left.

    Nope. Nice avatar though.

    Edit to add: nice antenna bands too.

    Uh... I mean I feel more rim on the right than left but its barely negligible. I'd assume there has to be some slight variance. (<0.01mm) Both are fairly smooth though

    I noticed this, too. Not an issue for me, but still a bit concerning on a $1200+ phone


    Edit: I noticed the slight “gap” because I happened to feel a very tiny protrusion on the edge behind the volume buttons. Seems like it might be glue that seeped out when it was pressed? Or something, but I was afraid that was what interfered with that side being flush, but probably not.

    It's a very minute detail, likely not noticed by many. But none the less, it's something that's a manufacturing irregularity.

    But I'm sure it's within spec.

    It's still an irregularity though, even if it's a minor One that many would never take notice of.
