    The way I read this is "I swipe my finger to the edge of the screen and hit the frame and then my desk and then the air because I ran out of desk."

    Yea thats right. I didn't really know how to explain it, but theres like a ridge between the frame and the screen. Make sense?

    I write about technology for Maximum PC and Tested
    in the Transcend
    Well, how much of a difference is it? On mine, the metal bit around the screen is slightly higher. I can feel it when I swipe across, but it isn't much higher.

    lol...omg this thread just made my day...I had to stop from snickering so my colleage doesn't think I'm weird XD

    My first thought: DUH!!! Obviously...what else would it hit :p

    I think the metal being raised a bit is how it's designed...maybe to protect the screen from directly touching a hard surface if it's place down on the front side (is that the head?)

    If you're thinking why I'm commenting on such an old thread...I'm doin a bit of spring cleaning in here...while I'm at work >_>;;;

    ... I'm on my lunch break OK!!! <_<;;;

    I had the same problem with my Desire. Not Nexus One though. I guess it's a minor manufacturing defect.

    When I swipe my finger across the screen, I leave behind a trail of booger residue.

    I'll try to wipe it off with my shirt, but that won't do since it needs moisture.

    So I breathe onto my screen which creates a condensation effect, which allows me to wipe my screen clean.

    Hate that, I use hand cream and it smears my phone, finger streaks everywhere......there must be an app which cleans your screen, no?

    When anyone but me swipes their finger across my screen, a cold shiver runs down my spine.

    When I swipe my finger across the screen an Apple lawyer appears and tries to sue me for breach of patent.

    For the swipe movement or having a finger? I think Apple patented iFinger.

    I understand what he's saying. The metal edge on the right side of my screen is every so slightly raised.

    The whole surround is on mine. I don't think it's a fault though.

    What's the problem?
