Question Is this normal on the HTC Desire??

I have been noticing something on my HTC Desire ever since I got it 8 months ago but I have never thought anything of it until now.

Basicly, there seems to be a very small gap between the soft touch plastic on the front of the phone where the buttons are and the bar of metal under the glass for the screen. I have noticed in daylight and sunlight that this is actually collecting dust, it also feels slightly more raised than the metal part. I am wondering if this is just mine or if everyone's is like this? Could you all please check yours?

Just in case you are still not sure where I mean, it's the first gap up from the buttons and trackpad.

Thanks

Yep, got a small gap there which collects shite, but it's not really noticeable unless I look for it. The metalwork seems flush with the plastic to me though.

Tiny tiny gap and all is flush. Over a year old, no case and no dust

So if you run your finger over it you don't feel that the plastic bit is a tiny bit higher?

Very small gap on mine (S-LCD). Not really noticeable unless I look closely.

For comparison sake, the gap is so small on mine I could not stick a pin head in it.

About a 1mm gap between plastic and metal, plastic seems very slightly higher too. It's a vodafone one from about a year ago.
