Just got my M8 yesterday and noticed that the top speaker grill, right below the camera, is somewhat lifted with a very small gap. It's perfectly flat otherwise, but it's just that one spot below the camera. Anyone else have this with their phone? Wondering if it's common or if I should bring it back for an exchange...

I just managed to push it down and it's sort of better... I'll see how it holds up over the next 24 hours or so. If it pops back up, I'll exchange it. Thanks for your feedback.

Get it replaced. my buddy got one with same issue on top and bottom and got it replaced. No problems on his new one. Mine seems fine, does make me worry that it could happen in future

Yeah, taking it back tomorrow. Problem is, every freakin' T-Mobile store in my area is sold out, so might be awhile before I get another one. :/

Tilt the phone forward and it should be noticeable in that area. Or run your finger up the screen over it. If it feels sharp and not smooth, could be a gap.

I couldn't download the photo, but here's a guy on Google+ that has the lift pretty bad. Mine is not as severe, but close.
