    See the picture below. On the side of the case near the volume switch, the battery cover doesn't meet smoothly with the front of the case. This leaves a lip there almost the same height as the volume switch. I find it a bit annoying especially since the opposite side is nice and smooth. Can you all tell me if this is normal on all N1's? Today is the last day of my 14 day return period and I'm wondering if I should send it back for a replacement.

    Obviously this isn't a huge issue, but if it's normally a smooth edge there then I might as well get a perfect phone instead of an oddity.

    That's how they are, never really noticed it, but I guess it's like more grippy when you hold by the volume.

    Is the back cover on correctly, battery in correctly, take it apart and see how it fits without the battery?

    Mine has that issue too :( Also at the bottom of the metal band where it meets the HTC section, there's a minuscule gap (0.5mm) that I find very annoying.

    Mine has the little lip as well. Never noticed it before. Doesn't bother me though. The phone is pretty solid without any annoying creaks or rattles which makes it head and shoulders above most phones I've owned.

    You guys have way to much spare time on your hands.

    no, its what the customers want, quality, and good manufacturing. See all those videos where they promote all the attention they put into the Nexus One building. How the hell they could miss this is beyond me. iPhone doesn't have any lips or things like this, do it right for god sakes. HTC has been slacking on build quality lately.

    The customers want what they pay for, in this case they paid 529 dollars plus tax. Would you buy a car with a dent in it brand new?
