    I noticed that even when my battery hatch is closed all the way (and yes, I definitely clicked it into position fully), there is still a small opening between the fake carbon backing (that comes off all the way when you access the battery) and the little plastic piece that slides up and down to allow the carbon backing to be removed.

    On the top part, where the fake carbon backing meets the top part of the phone (the bit that has the camera on it), there is no such gap.

    Does anyone else have this? Just want to make sure it's 'normal' and that I don't have my backing on improperly / a defective phone.

    Thanks!

    I checked mine after I read this and it looked liked I had a gap. I had to look at it closely to notice that the edge of the backing is black so it looked like I have a gap even though there is not one. So no, my phone doesn't have a gap.

    Hmm... Interesting.

    In case I wasn't clear, you won't notice it if you look at the phone directly (so that the "Galaxy S" is facing you). Instead, you have to slant it so you are looking down the phone from the top -- so you can see the charger/headphone ports, can sort of see "Galaxy S" upside down, and then you can look at the space between the backing plate and the bottom piece that clicks in and out of place.

    On mine there is a small opening, about the size of a fingernail there. Where the backing connects to the top piece where the camera is housed, though, there is no such gap...

    Can anyone else confirm? If no one else has this I will go back to the store to check their display model myself. I am worried this might present a problem if dust / moisture / etc. can get in there...

    When I hold it that way I can see two small gaps where the extended parts of the back plate slide into secure it to the phone. They aren't big enough for me to get my fingernail into it though.

    I see those, but also a similarly sized gap between those two. You don't see that one as well?

    Thanks for your help.

    Nope, no gap between the two.
