    They say that the glass sits on top of the aluminum and that the phone is made entirely out of glass/aluminum. Well if you look closely you can clearly see that in between the glass and aluminum there is a thin plastic strip, wtf!? It just takes away from the elegance of it the way they described it.

    It's a phone, don't be too perfectionist about it. The design is nice, there's a reason why they implemented the design the way they did, annoyances included.

    It's a seal. It keeps the glass and aluminum from rubbing on each other, it keeps dust and water out, and it might absorb a tiny bit of shock during a drop/hit.

    Take a look at a Macbook Pro screen sometime.

    Exactly! You need a material that will seal the glass to the aluminum. Otherwise, issues will occur without it.

    Come on Man!

    Don't take the description too literally. No person with any knowledge of electronics would literally assume that the phone was made ONLY out of glass and aluminum. Dare I blow your mind with this revelation: There's large amounts of silicon, plastic, and trace amounts of tin and gold inside as well. Not to mention the huge package of lithium inside too. :)

    The rubber gasket is there to seal out dust and incidental moisture. Without it, your phone would definitely be worse off. You'd get dust under the screen and condensation. Be glad it's there.

    On the other hand, without the rubber, you might then be able to use it as a card holder...
