I have found that there can be a couple of reasons for that. First, if the screen isn't completely clean when the glass is applied, it will lift a little at the edges and gather dust. The other times I have seen it is with off-brand glass protectors that simply don't adhere well. I had it happen with a cheap one that I bought on Amazon and it lifted at the edges after only a few days. I have had good luck with the major brands including Zagg InvisibleShield (a bit pricey) and recently with NekTeck, and it is only $4.99!

A five-star rating on anything should never be taken as a guarantee that the product or service in question will be 100% satisfactory to you. You could always be in the unlucky 1% that gets a lemon.

Are you able to continue using the iPhone despite the presence of the dust particle? Or will it have a deleterious effect on your quality of life? If the latter, I would definitely get the dust particle looked at by someone.

I'm surprised that screen protector isn't triggering your OCD. It's misaligned. It's touching the right edge of the Touch ID button. I would remove it, clean the Touch ID gently with a slightly-dampened cloth, order a Zagg screen protector and have someone at a Kiosk at a mall apply it. They'll get it on there straight.

We figured as much, but thank you for reporting back!

Did you get it removed and replaced with a new one for better alignment, as Europa had suggested?

They tried to clean it with air compress in the back and another technican who fixes phone in the back took a look at it then genius tech told me won't affect my phone and home button and I did contact the person who I purchased the screen guard they sent me another one via mail

Good part about the appointment is they sent my power beats 2 wireless out for repair
