pop up camera not sitting flush

    I've used the front pop up camera a few times, now I've noticed it's not sitting back completely flush.
    1 side is sitting in the handset more than the other.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    It's difficult to get a good picture.. But the left side of the camera head sinks into the chassis a little bit further than the other side. Which doesn't look good and is becoming a dust/fluff trap

    Mine too sits just a liiiiitle bit lower than the rest of the chassis. Almost not recognizable in fact. A bit more on the left side, yeap. I guess I don't really mind anymore (I did bother for 2 hours in the style of "oh no, a brand new device, is there anything wrong, have I done it?") and expect quite a lot of users having this and not even noticing. Esp. when using a case.

    dantay101, Drewgaren and kevinplus2 like this.

    Anyone else with this issue? Or does my handset have a defect

    Worth reporting you think? It's annoying seeing it and it keeps trapping dust

    I think dust will always get in around that area as the seal is at the bottom of the camera module so whatever lint is floating around in your pocket will find its way in regardless. If you look at other units I’m guessing they will all be like it to a greater or lesser degree. I’ve only had mine a week and am in the UK so can return for any reason so I’ll have a look at some other units in the EE store when I’m passing. If theirs are perfect I’ll return this one.
