To answer the "gold brick" portion of this question. That is a microphone. Used to record sound on video and is used when you have a call on speakerphone. That mic is part of the headphone jack, mute switch & volume button flex cable.

I'm not sure what you're talking about for the little square. Can you take a pic?
