    Too OC to ignore that the glass-weave has some air gaps at the back. How did this pass their quality control??

    They say there is a spot where the backplate is kinda squishy right under the BlackBerry logo. You can press it and it moves a bit on that spot like there's a gap under it. Most likely you can only feel it and not see it.

    Form Blaize's review:

    I do have one complaint about the back of the device though, and that's that there is some give there. What I mean by give is that there is a spot on the back that is a little squishy. You can push in on the glass-weave backing a tiny bit until you hit what is presumably the battery.


    From http://arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/201...-to-be-better/ :

    When you gently press on the back of the Priv, the backplate flexes and moves, as if there's a fairly sizeable air gap beneath. This is not something you'd expect from a phone that costs 560 ($699).

    The extreme version of this was an 'issue' with the Playbook as well, caused the device to be unable to lie down flat on the back (wobble). And for one my passport has it as well, causing the device to occasionally make cracking sounds when I grab it in that spot.

    So I'd say the quality control at BlackBerry is as good as it ever was.

    BlackBerry 10, Passport signed.
