iPhone 5 - issues!?
I've only had my iPhone 5 for nearly a month or more, and I've noticed that my Power Button isn't working the way it should. There are times when I press the Power Button to turn off the Screen, I feel the click-feedback that I should, but the screen doesn't turn off. I'll wait a few seconds before trying again, hoping it's just delayed, but it doesn't turn off. A few more attempts and it works.
Most times when I pretty the Power Button to turn on the iPhone, it works, other times it doesn't.
Clearly my iPhone 5 is unmodified, never been dropped, tossed or treated in any shameful way. It's still pristine with zero scuffs/scratches.
Last night was unusual. I tried to use the Camera to take a photo - it took longer than normal to load the application. I was able to focus on the object, take an image - I heard the sound effects - but the app just 'closed' the Iris (that animation effect built in) and it froze. I waited nearly 3-4 minutes to see if this would iron itself out - nothing. The iPhone then prompted me with the Black Screen with the Apple Logo -- and then Cycled through a reboot. When I was prompted with the Lockscreen... the swipe to unlock was unresponsive.
Not going to lie folks - this went on for nearly 10 minutes. At one point I tried to hold the Power Button to forced a Shut down (with the swipe to shut down)... Nothing.
I have nearly 5 gigs Free Storage, and only a hand full of apps that I use. The iPhone is charged on a regular basis when the battery reaches 5% or lower --
Is Anyone having any of the issues that I am having? I haven't said anything to Apple at this point just because I want to see if I'm alone in this. Also, the iOS is current to 6.0.1
Thanks for reading, I look forward to any feedback, suggestions, idea's

If this doesn't solve it, fully restore your phone.
If this doesn't solve it, take it to apple for a replacement.

my iPhone 5 would crash to black screen and apple logo after taking pictures and only selectively. Happened about 6-7 times, first time ten minutes after taking it out of the box. i think it has an issue, can't recall anyone else having this.
The Apple Support person on the phone said it's a hardware issue and not just limited to the 5, but iphones in general. sometimes the camera is faulty and mis-communicates I think.
getting a replacement.
