Need help from other S5 Users:

I own my S5 since last friday and the gap between the screen and the top frame seems to be a little wide. I would like to know from other S5 Users: Is your top gap also gathering so much dust in those few days since release?

Some Note 3's also suffer from this, and people got it replaced due to defect or just lived with it, my Note 3 didn't have it. But I have seen some with very big gaps. Manufacturing error It seems.

I got a replacement from my provider. The gap seems to be less wide.

But in general: My Speaker is eating fluffs from my jeansbag.. I am not really excited about the S5 in comparison to the S3.

There are strong adhesive between screen and frame.The gap get so much dust due to the adhesive. It is not normal to appear such gap. You'd better change a new one from the Samsung store.
