    Default Galaxy S5: Small gap

    Does anyone else have a small gap between the edge of the glass and the bezel at the top of their phone? Doesn't seem very dust resistant.

    I definitely have a gap on the bottom, it looks kinda like theres a tiny tiny tiny gap on the other 3 edges but I couldn't be sure. Definitely a small gap in the bottom however which has already collected dust. Is THIS something I should pursue a replacement for? I love this phone but there are like 3 things i've considered that could be faults in the week since I had it

    If had the gap, you also must keep it from water.

    Despite the gap It doesn't look like it would affect th waterproofing of the phone, I will look at another one in the shop today and if mine is too bad I will ask them about it and let you guys know

    here are two, sorry bad quality but i think you can see the gap. It is about 1/4 of a millimetre or perhaps a bit bigger

    Are you referring to where it's darker black inside and lighter black on the outer ring?

    I would say thats the design of the phone. Not sure on a while GS5. The glass goes from top to bottom no gaps for me.

    Nah there is a minimal gap between the plastic bezel and the glass of the screen most noticeably on the bottom. Does anyone think this actually matters or not?

    That would bother me if it was on mine. Has anyone else had the screen lift?

    Bryan that's what mine is like too but my gap is smaller, about half that size i'd say. On the bottom not the top. I have decided that I am never going to risk the water proofness and as I have just installed a glass screen protector (Which are AWESOME by the way)

    Hi all

    I am taking mine back to the shop tomorrow and hopefully will receive a replacement. I looked at 4 different stores today and no devices had gaps. I was going to leave it but that was just because i'm lazy, but i am going to make sure I get a replacement now.

    I got a replacement today. This one seems faster and the fingerprint scanner seems to work much better. Happy

    Yeah mine had very small gaps but you really have to look closely to tell. My previous phones had gaps too I'm sure it's normal

    Mine also has gap at top of the phone. About a paper width. It collects sand and dust but doesn't affect the water proofing, on mine at least.
