    Been wondering for sometimes, if you look at the frontal side of the iPhone 4S, you will see the camera visible, and then two slits next to it, One of course is the ear output, whats the one above the ear slit. The black has only a camera and an ear slit. Anyone know?

    There is no physical slit in the Black 4S as there is in the White 4S unless it is behind the glass and why is it not exposed in the Black as the White.

    Hmmm...I have a white 4S and I'm not sure what it is. Remember, the black iPhone 4 was the one that came out first, and then we saw a white 4 with the slit.

    Could it be an added feature (if it is, this happened with iPhone 4 as well).

    Proximity Sensor? I thought it was a light sensor and prox sensor worked based off of light = 0. Same principal for auto-brightness.

    I believe the small dot to the left is the light sensor.

    The small dot is the FaceTime camera.

    The black bar on top is the proximity sensor.
