Yes, I have just called Sony Mobile Support and service for Slovenia and they said it's totally normal like this and it's just a cosmetic "issue" and most of the devices have the same as they even checked those that they had there. And even IF something happens to the phone Sony will cover it. No worries

yes i did replace it ... but i fu#@$ it up. Once you put the back cover do not remove as the adhesive can only be use once, i did try to remove it for something that i forgot XD and then put it back and right after i did it i also tested the phone in water and it went OK but after a few days the gap problem came back and even worse so i ordered a black cover some new adhesive and will do it again. hopefully this time i will do it right.

I used a hair dryer, a suction cup and some opening tools. The procedure was hard, but it is doable, just buy some extra adhesive and if you can buy an extra back frame
