Quote: Thank you so much for your help,I just got my backflip today! it rocks!...one question, i want to know if it's just mine or in general...you know how the bottom (keyboard on bottom and battery cover on top) part of the phone is separated in two? Do you see any slight separation of the two pieces, mainly at the hinge part?
Are you talking about on either side of the hinge looking at the phone from the hinge side?
I had not noticed before, but yes there is a gap at the hinge side. I believe that is because the distance is fixed on that side by the hinge. The other side closes tight with the hinge action pressing the edges together. The gap provides clearance so the tow halves of the phone don;t rub as the hinge opens and closes.
