Afternoon all,

So yeah I'm loving this phone greatly, but I've noticed something horrible for a phone so well made.
If anyway else owns one can you please check if your headset has a tiny gap ( Im really do mean tiny gap) between the front metal casing and
the cream looking plastic band around the phone. So were the headjack and on switch is . . . .
I noticed it last night and if I press the back and front together the gap closes.
After speaking to P4U they said no one else has rang in with such problem and they said they would exchange it wen more arrive in stock.
I ended up going in store were I discover they ave one there but is a pre ordered handset. The guy did open it up and checked both handsets.
They new one did also have a tiny gap but not as bad?

Bit shocked as I havent really used the phone alot as Im still using my S3 till I pay my contract off.

Anyone else got this?7



Cheers

Re: HTC One Owners check it out!
I have read somewhere 2 weeks ago it is a problem for some demo set. But seems it existing on retail phone now. Also I heard iphone5 has such problem but people think it acceptable.

So maybe other users can give their view.

And you would better to have a clear photo upload others can judge.

There was another thread on this exact issue. It is very small, but then again these phones aren't exacty cheap. So should be uniform all around.

Select Quick Reply and then Select Go Advanced. Over at the top, click on the attachment incon (looks like a paper clip) and browse to where ever the photo is saved

I got mine today, have looked but not used the phone yet. On both the top and bottom, I can squeeze and a hairline gap will come together, but I don't think this is a problem really. It is negligible and it probably won't have any impact at all, the phone still seems premium and solid in the hand, and it is not like they advertise it as being waterproof or anything in which case this would be an issue.

I have a slight gap on the top, nowhere else though, and its very slight, I keep a case on it at all times though, so no big issue
