I don't think that Apple's QC is worse or better than Samsung or any of the rest.

These things are mass market goods, contracted and assembled out to the same factories (Foxconn, etc). Apple does not have access to specially trained cheap labor, etc.
They have no advantage here.

So QC is more luck of the draw.

Why does Apple allow phones to pass QC with dust in the lens?

Now keep in mind, my camera works fine and the dust hasn't affected pictures yet, but it worries me that the speck of dust can move with use?

The dust is kind of hard to see, but its there. My picture actually makes it look a lot better than it actually is.

Much larger pic...
Omg...this thread makes me lol.

Seriously dude there is no such thing as a perfect product. I have dust in a $2600 DSLR lens and I don't complain about it.

Take it back. When you spend that kind of money or any kind of money for that fact, you should be fully satisfied with the product. Maybe QC isn't what our expectations are either. All the more reason to expect Apple to resolve this for you.
Have iPhones, iPads, iPods, Apple TVs - enjoy the products!
