    Haven't had this problem on mine. It's about 7 weeks old. What's your hardware revision? 0002 here. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    Just curious, but have you tried removing more of the soft touch? If you can get it all gone you'd have one slick phone free from obvious defects and no worries of tainting black!

    I may be wrong but I'm 99.999999999999999999% sure that's a flash indicator of sorts.

    My Black 8x is doing the same thing on one corner, and around the USB port. I'm debating on whether I actually care enough to do something about it.

    I'm also actually very interested in this as well. I want to try it out myself if only I knew for sure that it'd look good.
