This only affects some phones, the vast majority are fine. Welcome to iPhone club! First rule of iPhone club - always talk about iPhone club...!

Awful battery life, this only extrapolates to about 15.5 hours a day!

About 20 min was music streamed via BT, but, BT, wifi and cellular all on. It was pretty much all wifi and cellular browsing.

Best to stay away from the forums until you really think you have a problem. It'll make a hypochondriac out of you.

I have scuffs and scratches, even a small dent exposing the silver but its not that bothersome to me. I wear a case anyway. The overall use of the phone outweighs the scratches to me. If it gets that bad, it can always be replaced at a repair shop. Buy skins or screenprotectors for your phone if you're afraid of scratches. It doesn't cover the bezel but everything else shall be good.

Nan, that's Jesus you're thinking about.
Jesus doesn't exist.



To the OP, even if your phone had defects, you have AppleCare, so you're covered. Enjoy your new phone

If you decide I cover it up in non winter months, speck candy shells are nice. Decent protection and not too bulky.
