Ants are badass, ridiculously strong, and he probably just wiggled his way under/through whatever low pressure gasket/seal is in place for dust. This device is not air tight by any definition. He just wanted to get to the sweet candy jelly beans inside.

Ant penetration resistance should be added to every device spec and properly tested.
Youtube: "Xperia Z Official Ant Testing". "The Xperia Z is water resistant up to 1 meter for 30 minutes, and ant resistant up to 150 ants for 45 minutes. Results may vary with ant species and water purity."

I completely agree with you.

And I laughed way more than I should have.

I started another thread on this where after receiving my replacement nexus 10 I gave it a thorough inspection and I did not find any dust. After leaving it in a bag for a couple of days I find a small, almost invisible hair that I am 99% certain was not there when I received it. Normally I would accept that I may have just missed it, but it I looked this thing over for quite a long while before I gave it the ok. I'm debating whether or not to send it into samsung because I fear this same thing could happen again, or I could receive a unit with horrendous light bleed or more dust, as both seem pretty common. However I thought I read somewhere that these screens were sealed and the glass could not be separated from the display? Perhaps the glass and the display are fused to the frame, but not to each other or the seal is not the best.

Shine a really bright light on the screen and turn your device on an extreme angle so that you're almost looking at its side, but you can still see the screen. Is it me or can you see Foam bonding it? I don't think you would be able to make that out if the glass rested directly on the display. You can see it in the picture below. It's the light gray line.

Well clean your screen first because we can't figure out what we are seeing.

Have you tried updating to 4.2.2 yet? I've heard it takes care of a lot of bugs people have been seeing.

I'm very very sorry OP, I have one of those ****ing lightning bugs in my LCD display, crawled in there and died just a few months after I got it and Samsung refused to replace it hopefully you have more luck with either Google or Samsung.
