    Stainless steel is not a hard metal. Is this really a problem though?

    Another thread somewhere had similar issue in same spots. If you have to zoom in, not sure its an issue. Up to you to decide.

    This is due to a little too much glue from the water right screen. Should be able to wipe off if you use a toothpick.

    wipe what off? there's a gap between the stainless steel band and the rest of the phone in a few spots

    would this effect water resistance?

    No one can answer that, unless you want to hold it under water to find out. There is no way of testing for water resistance short of looking for a pressure tester similar to ones used for watches only big enough to fit a cell phone

    I have a similar issue on the left side, it doesn't feel smooth where the steel band meets the front of the phone. On the right side it feels like a smooth transition.

    Had mine for a week and out in a case immediately but noticed this today when I cleaned it and the light caught it. Now it’s all I can see and it bugs me. Had anyone got there’s replaced for this yet.
