Hi everyone, I bought a Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G last week and I noticed there's a small gap between the back frame and the body. Other sides/area between the back frame and body are enclosed nicely. Just the side that is near to the camera part has a visible gap but easy to overlook. It bothers me much because this is a IP67 rating phone, anyone has the same problem?

Yes, the thing is, the shop replaced me a new phone last week, and this is the one that had the small gap between the back frame and the body. The previous A52s 5G I got are not enclosed nicely as well, the gap is at the bottom left edge of the phone, you can easily open the gap a little wider with long nails. I was told that there is rubber enclosed together with the back frame but I asked for a replacement anyway the next day I bought it. Few days later, I found out this smaller gap near the camera...

This might have been the flaw in the back frame design itself, bad adhesive? Poor product inspection?
As long as it is resistant to water despite the gap, it's all good but I can't confirm it.

Sadly Samsung build quality is not what it used to be. Just replaced my 'hot plate' S9 with a A52S 5G and noticed some irregularities similar to yours as well.

It's a shame because it has great UI and some features that I came to love. We willingly paid for Samsung brand but the quality control is disappointing.
