    iPhone 5 scratches, scuffs and damage out of the box...

    Anyone experiencing anything like this? Seems to be rampant and there are articles, stories and threads all over the web about it.

    yup, mine has 2 dings in the bezel area fresh out of the box...opened a case with apple, will be going to my carrier's store (where I picked it up) to discuss my options there and if that fails off to the apple store I go to get it hopefully swapped out for a new damage free one. My phone is a 64gb black model.

    Not with mine they didn't, the quality was seriously lacking. Look what came out of my iPhone 5 box... pure garbage in every way. Name:  Screen Shot 2012-08-13 at 12.05.37.png

    I take my inspiration from equally as brilliant people. Your sarcasm noted, your sentiments are shared, and directed back to GeminiIII.

    Android fanboys trolling Apple forums, now THAT'S original!

    I didn't have any scratches or scuffs out of the box. But mine is a white iPhone, so it may be a little harder to spot.

    Just because I am currently using an android product does not make me a fanboy. I have also used Apple, Microsoft and RIM offerings in the past and may again in the future.

    I find these device holy wars amusing and most entertaining and thought you provided a wonderful broadside.

    I didn't mean to implicate you with that comment, it was further touching upon the context of my post.

    Mine had a little line next to the letter on the back while the Apple logo isn't perfect. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow.

    I just read up on this today and am a little disappointed. Mind you, I understand Apple doesn't physically make the product but I would think they would partner closely with their vendors to maintain a high level of quality control. I just got my shipping notice this morning so I'll have mine on Friday and will see what there is to see. Fingers crossed...

    About five of my friends have various scratches and dings.

    One had a huge dent on the corner like it was dropped.

    Well last year apple tried to make changes at the Foxconn plant because there too many suicides and managers forcing kids to work 14 hour days under threats.

    So I guess here is the new non-suicide industrial work-camp quality.

    As soon as I saw that the black model would have a black colored band I knew there was gonna be scratch/chipping issues. So glad I ordered white instead.
