I'm usually not this negative when I post but to post about this is really something so small its, as I said , embarrassing.
you're absolutely right. the picture i posted doesn't do it justice. the picture quality was off from an iphone 4. it looks worse that that in real life. hell to tell you the truth i'm ABSOLUTELY embarass to go to apple store on monday to exchange it, and to be honest it is what it is, something so small and trivial that i have to waste the apple store employees time and hope the one i get will be good.

for all the good people out there who fight the fight for their freedom, keep doing it man. don't let people get you down. keep up the good fight.

It wasn't my impression from Apple's press info that "the iPhone 5 is just a phone". If they had said that and the phones were scuffed/flaked from the box maybe just a few had complained. But they made it pretty clear that we shouldn't just expect "just a phone":

From Apple Press Info:

“iPhone 5 is the most beautiful consumer device that we’ve ever created,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We’ve packed an amazing amount of innovation and advanced technology into a thin and light, jewel-like device..:"

"Designed with an unprecedented level of precision, iPhone 5 combines an anodized aluminum body with diamond cut chamfered edges and glass inlays for a truly incredible fit and finish."

I don't think the above statements go well together with iPhones scuffed/flaked right from the box...

Neither of my iPhone 5s were damaged out of the box. My white one has nicks on the chamfered from before I bought a case.

Mine looks almost as good as it did on day one.

I only say almost because there's a bit of fingerprint smudging on the back (I'm going naked until the case I ordered arrives ) but that's to be expected and is probably easily cleaned.

I was cleaning the back with a dab (just a DAB!) of rubbing alcohol and a microfiber towel. Bad idea?
