    Anyone notice that on the back of the device if you look, the left side of the battery door is aligned perfectly with the front metal part of the phone, but on the right side that the speakerphone is on, the top where the battery door meets the metal / on off screen button, it isn't flush with the phone and there is an edge or ledge there, does this bother anyone else?

    Also top right corner the bend is off and it is off alignment till it meets the volume rocker.

    I hadn't noticed, but now I've looked mine is a little off on the volume rocker side. Thanks very much for pointing that out, could've been months til I noticed myself :|

    Same here,

    I had a look at the inside, there's a little ledge on the right that is causing the slightly less flush cover issue on the right side of the cover as jazzman09 said.

    Not a huge deal maybe they can resolve it with a re-mold of the battery cover?

    Man do ppl only complain about the smallest things.. it's off by half a mm for crying out loud... get a life and stop looking at your phone under microscope.

    I for one, was not complaining at all, merely concurring that there is a "slight" (emphasis on slight) gap in the cover, I think the principal is regarding build-quality.

    I agree with mobiusdigital, I was not complaining, merely agreeing that a slight misalignment was visible when I put the phone under scrutiny. Since replying to this post I'd forgotten all about it.

    Until you replied that is ;-) most phones have 'quirks' the iPhone for example bottom of the phone has a slight lip that if when you unplug the charger incorrectly can catch on the bottom causing a crack. That's more of a fundemental design flaw though :)

    If Google had made the battery non-removeable and the back cover permanent, the phone would be perfect. Oh. Wait a minute... ;)

    Now that the phone has a few flaws, let's everybody get microscopes and find more. Problem is more and more stupid little flaws are being overhyped. There is a slight displacement of the cover, who cares like you look at the back of the phone.

    Anyway the phone will be ok with 3G fix.. damn you HTC/google.. give now!!

    I don't understand the problem here.

    Is this "ledge" a malformation of the plastic or is it a burr that could be filed off in order for it to fit properly

    Mine fits perfectly so I'm wondering if it is just one batch which came from the moulding plant...
