Some people who have already gotten their hands on the coveted Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have noticed what looks like a manufacturing defect. The gap between the display glass and the bezel is larger than usual, big enough to fit a business card into. Naturally, people aren’t happy. However, the explanation for this “defect” is in the manual.
For some reason, Samsung included a direct reference to the gap around the display in the manual. Here’s what 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.
So this gap is actually a feature, allowing for movement of the various parts without damage. It’s a pretty honest thing to state, and doesn’t really sound good on paper. We have to wonder whether it’s an excuse or not, as the older models don’t have any large gap around the display. However, we’ll leave that judgement to you. Read through the manual (the part about the gap can be found on page 180) and tell us what you think of this issue. Leave a comment!
