Oh yes, the piss yellow screen is not a figment of anyone's imagination.

They are very real and unacceptable. Folks, it's not "glue", it's not "warmer", it's a massive off yellow, over bearing piss yellow tone that dominates every white section of your display.

It's funny to me how people will try to justify Apple's poor quality control. One day they will get a yellow screen and see what its like.

When you say yellow do you mean whole screen yellow or a tint?

Exactly. Here are the top 3 moronic responses to a thread dealing with a real defect. 1) Mine is fine so you are full of it. 2) Not a defect, it's supposed to be that way 3) Quit being so picky.

Some people here think nothing of returning phones for the stupidest reasons. It's the 90/10 rule. 10% of people produce 90% of the complaints.

All my reasons were legitamate. I will not have a yellow screen. Theres no excuse. That was 2 of the 4. The other 2 reasons are more then legit.

My new perfect phone had a nick in the bezel out of the box. I still consider it perfect.

He said that it was really obvious. This is also the first I've heard of it. And that wouldn't explain the last phone he got being perfect.

4) It's just a figment of your imagination, or you're trolling.

You guys must have wronged someone in a past life to have such bad luck with getting bad devices.

Would you take an iPhone 5 to the Genius Bar for dust on the screen, under the glass? This one is a swap for one that had light leak under the lock button.

I don't really want to go back into the store, but it leaves a couple noticeable spots on the screen, and I payed a good amount to get the 64GB model.

That's very strange, as my family got a total of 4 iPhone 5's in December and each and every one is perfect.

you people treat this phone like it's made out of solid gold. Do you honestly think this phone will remain scratch free forever? Get over it

I've actually also read:

5) Those complaining have been paid by Google/Android phone maker to come to this forum to do it to make Apple look bad..

It's a huge difference between accepting scratches afterword that you inflict yourself and scratches/scuffs/yellow tinted screen/malfunctioning cameras right out of the box, don't you agree

I find this hard to believe. Maybe though, that would be sketch. Grats on the new phone. I thought you won or something, but I suppose to quest for the best phone is still one worth congratulating.

Right, so it's NOT "perfect" it's just flawed slightly enough for you to be ok with it.

That's been my point all along. There are plenty of NORMAL people in this world who can consider a "nick" to be no big deal.

For what it's worth, your "issues" all seemed legitimate (if not a little picky, but not OCD picky) for replacement.

The problem most normal people have with "scuffgate" is that it's literally freaking out over the same "nick" that you consider perfect. It's usually a defect so small they need a macro lens, special lighting, and a "if you can see it" disclaimer.

There is no "perfect" iPhone (or any mass produced phone for that matter). Just scales of acceptability.

Mines "perfect" too lol...

I couldn't agree with you more. Although I've had Apple products for only 7 years, I've never had an Apple product I've had to return. My iPhone 5 was perfect first time and it's still going strong with no major flaws. Sure there's a tiny scratch on the side, but that was my fault.
