Hey numberfourtytwo! I also have this phone. Love it too. For a small compact phone. it's pretty great. I see what you're saying though, didn't notice it right away, untill I read your feedback. I'm not sure if I saw th top of a circuit board, but there is a gap, and more noticeable like you said, in the light, but you have to look pretty close. Other than that, not to noticeable otherwise. I agree, you do have to hold it to the light to notice. And because that part is black, it's easy to oversee. Other than that, the phone is pretty nice. Knock wood, no problems, have had it about a week or so. So I hope that won't cause an issue with the phon's function down the road, let's hope not.
