Has anyone else received a iPhone 5 with white adhesive showing between where the small glass panels meet the aluminum back or where they meet the edge of the phone?

My guess is that when the small glass panels were installed, too mush adhesive was applied and so it was pressed out and not caught.


Did you take it back to Apple? and if so, did they replace your phone?


I have a black iPhone 5 and it is very noticeable.

iPhone 5, iOS 6

    Bring your phone back for evaluation if this bothers you.
