Question about possible raised edge of screen

Does everyone's M8 have a slightly raised screen and speakers? I'm trying to find out if mine is normal or odd. The edges of my phone are slightly lower than the screen and the speakers. I read some reviews that mentioned that the M8 has edges that were higher than the screen so if you placed the phone screen down, the screen didn't actually touch the table. Is that the case with the Sprint M8? Is the Sprint M8 slightly different than other carriers, maybe due to the Harmon Kardon dealio?

I plan to head to a Sprint store in the next couple days to see what the display model looks like. I have a SERO account so I had to order my phone through Telesales so I'm a bit worried that if I have to exchange it, it could be a pain.

Thanks for any insight!

Thanks for the quick reply!! It's comforting to know my phone isn't the odd duck.

Loving the phone! (just came from the EVO LTE)

Interesting that they notice. I didn't notice or care until I bought the Case Mate Barely There case which says in it's marketing that it has a lip to protect the screen around the edges, but the one they shipped me didn't have a lip. So I started wondering if maybe my screen was higher than it should be. I also bought a Incipio Featherlight case and it does have slight lip. I'm not sure yet which I prefer. I don't really need the lip as I never put my phone down on it's screen side, but I like that the Featherlight case is a matching grey color, while the Casemate is just boring black. Really tough decisions right? ;oP

I totally get it! I've had every Sprint HTC Flagship since the Hero. HTC makes beautiful awesome devices! With that being said, I am really critical of craftsmanship too and I've had some kind of gripe with every one of them. From crooked screen, dust under screen, light bleed, dead pixel, raised speaker grill like yours, you name it! Even my M7 took a few exchanges lol. Yes, I'm kinda anal, but for the price of these devices I expect perfection I guess. With my M8 I am good with all it's "character flaws" as it's a beautiful device. I'm not even gonna do a dead pixel test...I'm happy! Like I said, I get it...go swap it out if you're able to do it, make sure you're happy! Good luck
