Google's new flagship Pixel 5 appears to be having a serious hardware issue.
Several owners who are receiving their Pixel 5s are reporting that there's a gap between the phone's display cover and the aluminum frame of the phone. The severity of the issue varies a bit between units, and not every Pixel 5 has this gap, but many people say that they've got a gap in the upper-left corner of the unit where the hole-punch selfie camera is located.
There are reports of a gap in the Pixel 5's housing on both Google's own support forums as well as the XDA-Developers forums. The folks at Android Police say that their Pixel 5 review unit has a gap between the display cover and the body, too, though their phone's gap is smaller than the one on some other devices.
This would be an issue for any new smartphone, but it's especially concerning here because this is an expensive flagship device made by Google. Making matters worse is that it's not yet known if this gap could affect the Pixel 5's IP68 water resistance. Even if it doesn't, though, the gap could collect dust.
Google hasn't issued an official statement on this issue. More reports of this gap issue seem to be popping up as Pixel 5s continue to make their way to consumers, though, so hopefully we hear something from Google soon.
