Taken out of context, and inserted into human trafficking context, makes this hilarious.

I have the 32GB black model and yes the sides were "scuffed" I don't care too much about that but I also have a scratch/mark on the screen in the upper left corner. This is why mine is going back.

Hmmm... I wonder what the odds are for getting 4 defective devices in a row, out of a total of 8 million devices manufactured.

How many times did you return your xbox 360?

WTF - It almost looks like it was done on purpose. Not saying you did but people boxing these. Maybe in protest for apple? I mean it appears there is a huge number of devices with these scratches.

even above the silent button there are a few scuffs. Usually i wouldnt bother about wanting to exchange it but after spending $1126 on it, i feel like i deserve a perfect condition phone without having to compromise. Its a bummer cos i havent even removed the plastic from it.

Called Apple, they took down my exchange order, and said apple will get in touch with me within 24 hours. But i guess i wont get my new phone for a while now knowing how many people are probably asking for replacements.

its too bad, i am scheduled to travel overseas in a week for 3.5 months. guess no new iphone for me just yet.

packed it back in in box. now waiting to hear back from apple Canada.

Nice!
Lol apple apologist noobs. Went through 6 iPad 3s, 3x retina MBPs, and now 4 iPhone 5s. Go Tim Cook!

Hey guess how many tried it took for a perfect iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, MacBook Pro, iMac, MacBook Air, several iPods? When Jobs was around, EVERY single one was flawless on the first purchase.

Well when I go sell my iPhone 4S which still looks like it's a brand new phone, it's going to be a lot more desirable than a damaged out of the box one now wouldn't it?

The pock marks feel raised almost, so I'm thinking it may actually be splatter from the gloss of the Apple logo and back text? When I turned the phone over, one of the white bands ends in solid blue right on the front of the phone. White phone all over with a nice blotch of blue. Thought it might be blue protection tape but it would not scratch off.

Not returning either phone unless the blue mark on the front annoys my wife, but this is pretty unacceptable quality control. I'll admit that I had to go hunting to find a problem on my black phone, but for the problem to be cracked glass isn't cool. With three separate problems, the white phone is a mess.

I HAVE THE SAME BLUE MARK on my black model! Looks like a little tab, mine is on the bottom antenna.

Picked up a 64gb White this am, and happy to say it is perfect, just like the black 64gb that was delivered to my house yesterday! Couldn't be happier.

Picked my White 16gig up today (lunch time). The only thing I did notice is that on the top left and right curves, there's a slight line on the metal...it's not a scratch, it looks more like a join on the aluminium. It's very hard to notice, but not sure if its supposed to be there or not. Not really bothered either way though as you'd never see it without holding it 1mm away from your eyeball!

I got a chance to see a few black iPhone 5s when I went out looking for cases today. I didn't see too many with scuffs, not that it means any of it isn't real, just might not be too widespread.

That's supposed to be there. It's the separation points for the antennas.

Personal attack reported. You really didn't have to be rude and resort to name calling. We all have our opinions and mine is that some folks are being way to picky, does that mean I have a pathetic little life. Actually I'm 62 years old and have lived a very good life.

Strangely, one of the marks on the chrome part of my white phone has rubbed off. Looks flawless now minus these couple of things. Would be nice if that diagonal mark at the bottom wasn't there... Maybe it'll also rub off somehow?

Any white iPhone 5 owners out there with damage of any kind?
My 32GB white came with a slight chunk taken out of one of the side pieces.It's not huge and horrible, but just wish the first blemish would have been my fault, not out of the factory. Not sure if I'll bring it in for a replacement or not... seems like there's a lot of phones with similar issues. I do love the look of the white/silver though! I wonder if there's something I could fill them in with.

Needless to say... I can live with a few shiny spots on the bezel (especially after seeing the black iPhone 5s)... normal wear and tear will take over soon.
Quick update... the little bumps and shiny spots on the aluminum bezel appeared to be excess glue... i gave the bezel a nice rub down yesterday with my thumb and most if not all the bumps are gone,

I'm in the same boat. Got a 64GB white via AT&T. Has two dings. One is pretty bad, the other is slightly noticeable. I bought a new phone. I expect a new phone. Going to the Apple Store tonight to get a replacement.

This is what mine looks like. Lighting makes it hard to see. Little knick right above the lightning connector on the left and another right above the first speaker hole to the right of the lightning connector.

Initially was very disappointed, but I am doubting I'd get a pristine one if I exchanged. It doesn't seem too bad. Thoughts?

Hah! Telling people to get a life and then being butt-hurt of wasting your life with meaningless posts here? Classic and it IS pathetic.
