    I noticed with the Pre Plus that the gesture area (to me) seems a bit odd looking without the button, I'm all for removing it, but the gesture area just seems a bit big with it gone. I also was thinking how slick the Pre would look if there was nothing but screen on the front of the phone, but that sliver thing above the screen screws that up.

    I have always wondered why it is there, I noticed the iPhone has it too, The Droid also has something like it also and I'm assuming others have something similar. What's it do? Is it possible to not have it there? If can not not be there(double negative intentional), could be made barely noticeable?
    I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

    You could remove it if you wanted... just wouldn't be able to hear anything not on speaker phone.

    Actually in photos it looks pretty silvery and noticeable due to lighting/flash but it's hardly noticeable in person. It's actually not even silver it's more of a tungsten in color. And it's certainly not a distraction when you're actually using the screen. But I suppose you could always paint it black.

    I think the OP is wondering why it's silver and not black. It does stand out alot more on the Pre Plus with no button...

    I don't know how I missed that, I have always thought of speakers being round, so I did not cross my mind that that was what it was. I don't know where I thought the speaker was then, my mistake.

    That silver thing on the top of the screen is the heat sensor for your ear. When you are talking on a phone call the heat from your ear makes your screen go away so that your face does not accidently tap something on the screen. Try calling your voicemail then put your finger on top of the silver bar at the top of your phone and you will notice your screen go away.

    Actually got me thinking of how sweet my Pre would look if I painted the silver button and speaker black.....or maybe color it black with a Sharpie.......

    Actually the silver thing is a hunk of plastic covering the ear piece. The item your describing is the proximity sensor and it is located behind the face of the Pre to the right of the ear piece.

    To see it, shine a flashlight on it.

    dont think its actually the speaker, i think its just a piece that goes ever the speaker to try to keep pocket lint and other junk out of the speaker outlet.

    @jwall459. The proximity sensor is actually located on the uper right hand side of the phones face. Has nothing to do with heat, but proximity.
