Galaxy Note 4 Screen Gap Not A Defect

note 4An issue has plagued a few Galaxy Note 4 devices — a small gap between the metal frame and the front body of the device; in some cases, wide enough to fit a business card. However, it has been revealed that this is in fact not a manufacturing defect, rather it is a ‘necessary’ manufacturing feature. This help comes from Note 4’s Manual, under the troubleshooting section, where it says:

A small gap appears around the outside of the device case

This gap is a necessary manufacturing feature and some minor rocking or vibration of parts may occur.

Over time, friction between parts may cause this gap to expand slightly.

    Just looked at four different Note 4 devices and I can confirm that this is not an issue.

    The gap is NOT as thick as a bussiness card. Its about 0,1 mm thick (about 1 thin notepad paper thick) and 0,3-0,5 mm deep. It’s not visible if you don’t shine with a lamp from a perfect ange and look very closely, and it’s only on the right and upper side. Any gaps larger, fitting a bussiness card, like in the picture, is a defect. Although I suspect the pictures are fake.

    Almost every phone I’ve seen has had a small gaps I’d wager (and this is just a guess) that it’s for expansion and contraction under heating or cooling of the device (which can happen often depending on the heating of it with use, charging, and the ambient temperature the phone is being subjected to).

    You wouldn’t want it to expand and have no where to go and crack the glass, would you? I’m not a Samsung apologist (if it’s a legitimate problem, then it should be fixed in production ASAP), but I’m just using common sense.
