    Does it affect the normal operation of the phone at all?

    Yes it's normal. You are seeing the grille cover for the receiver speaker that you listen to phone calls through. On my iPhone 7 plus you can see part of this area as being shiny I suppose and the other part of it being a black color. Is that what you are speaking of?? If so it's completely normal. Mine looks just like yours. May be just die or the way the phone is actually made. But my phone has the same appearance as what you seem to be speaking of. And nothing is wrong with my phone that I know of. Hope this helps.

    It's possible that you're seeing the speaker mechanism shining through from beneath the speaker grille when you shine a light on it.

    Yep mine shows the shiny speaker grill. It's the right side part of it looking at the front of the phone. There is nothing wrong with your phone. And yes it's the speaker grille for the receiver speaker on the front top of the phone. It's normal man. No worries about it here. My phone works just fine!!

    Maybe the speaker parts on those iPhone models aren’t shiny and so don’t show up when you shine a light in the speaker grill.

    The internal components of an iPhone would be the same no matter what colour the case was. It’s possible that light may penetrate differently on a white screen bezel compared to a black bezel but I haven’t seen any data to support this.
