Its all in your head...

The irony of this thread is that even a refurbished iPhone would have a new housing

What difference does it make? Your getting a brand new enclosure, a brand new battery...its basically a brand new phone. These remanufactured handsets are pristine

I think you've overreached to the situation. You got unlucky and received a device that was accidentally scratched during the packaging process. No big deal. This happens from time to time.

I have purchased 11 iPhone 5s this year and none of have any issues.
Does size matter?
