    So I've just got a new S4, and everything is great apart from one tiny thing (I'm a little ocd lol) that's bothering me slightly. Well at least it will bug me if mine is the only one, otherwise I'm fine with it.

    My camera is not completely centred within the back cover cut out. It's very very minor but is ever so slightly further to one side (left) than the other. So the chrome ring touches the left side, but there's just a fraction of a gap between it and the right side.

    Looking at review pics online I kind of think a few seem to be like that but it's hard to tell. So what about everyone else?

    --------------------
    Having looked at it further (and I think it's worth mentioning it's probably more obvious on white models), the camera is just off centre when the back cover is off, so it's not the cover that's the problem I don't think.

    Looking at the ifixit teardown, their camera seems a little off centre once the cover is off too.

    So how about everyone else? Is your camera dead centred or slightly off to one side?

    I don't have an S4, but welcome to the forums!

    Mate mine's the same, except it's even left/right but nearer the bottom side than the top side. Wouldn't worry about it - just an imperfection in manufacturing. You'd probably have to go through 20 to get an absolutely perfect one.

    Haha. Yes think you're right. I just wanted to know if most of them come like that!
