Default Badly finished plastic in upper left corner

Does anybody else here have an Xperia Z2 with the same design flaw? In the upper-left corner of my phone there is a noticeable area where the plastic is not filled correctly. It looks awful in daylight conditions and seriously makes the phone look ugly. I've noticed other users mentioning it on this forum, is it a more widespread problem or just a faulty batch of phones?

Look below to see what I'm talking about:

Probobly a fabrication error from the ones doing the frame. I know how delecate They are cos we (my job) have made ​​aluminum frames to Nokia and HTC in the past and They are VERRY delecate after milling.

My white Z2 week 18 is fine. I checked the whole edge of both sides and the molding seems straight. Although it does look like my white is not as white anymore but that's to be expected of a white phone lol.
