    ok so im a bit pinickity about dust.
    this phone is already pissing me off.
    does anyone else have an issue with the way the dust sits in the groove between the screen and the plastic casing (can see this building up heavily over time if its only been a week and its annoying me)
    also where the hardware button is there is a lip of glass before it reaches the button. seems dust gets trapped under there too.

    I dont have alot of dust around me or work in a dusty area however its in my pocket alot and it seems it takes the pocket fluff/dust there.

    seems theyve had a design flaw and not thought that maybe rather than having the glass recessed into the case it should be sat on top and sealed at the side ala iphone

    Its going to vary between devices on just how much of a gap there is between the bezel and glass...Thank Samsung and their awesome quality control. Throw a Diztronic case on it, it covers almost the whole bezel, and will give you piece of mind while its in your pockets.

    That air in a can works pretty good as long as you do not use it very close to the screen

    No way man...careful with that! I wrecked a Blackberry a few years back from listening to someone on a forum about using the Can of air from staples. Lmaoo,,,Blew the dust from the bottom of the screen all over the inside of the screen...

    My unit is pretty tight. I haven't noticed an issue. I've seen a thread on this before

    You notice I said not very close to the screen. I've been using canned air on all my phones (including S3) for 10 years or so with no problems. Mostly for trail dust and pocket lint. I guess I must be doing it right. But yes if you are going to touch the phone with the nozzle, you of course could have problems.

    Heya. Has anyone had any problems with dirt gathering on the G.S3 around the edgest of the screen (between the screen and the chrome blue/silver? edge thingy) its only noticeable under direct light but my OCD is kicking it and i hate it. So my question is is there any way to get rid of that or only to replace the screen or something.

    Thanks ;)

    I haven't had any yet, but I used to get it on my S2. Just wipe it off, I would sometimes use a baby wipe on the S2 if it was kind of in the crevice and hard to get out.

    i bet i would. that edge im refering too is even all the way around and would be pretty impossible for dust "not" to get there. just the way they glass traps it due to it being slightly lipped underneath

    i would do but a pic doesnt do it justice as its so small an area i would need a digital slr to focus on it
    yep this, i find it hard to believe this isnt affecting everyone as its a that gap cannot be avoided completely on parts of the phone.
    you can only tell in certain lighting conditions its more for when i come to sell it than anything. getting rid of it will be a nightmare

    I'm having the same issue along the top. There's white marks (dust?) in the join between the bezel and the screen. It runs along the whole top except directly above the earpiece

    Is the desert dusty?

    Haha, as dusty as you can imagine. Yet I have not put a screen protector or a case on. Only replaced battery door with leather-like one for better grip.
