iPhone 5 Amazon or Apple

Hello there,

I'm interested in purchasing the iPhone 5 but not entirely sure where to buy it from, it's cheaper from a Third Party Seller on Amazon so I was thinking perhaps I should buy it from there, but there's always a risk with these things...

Or I pay the full price from the Apple store.

What have your experiences been with Amazon third party sellers and if you need refunds and such...?

Cheers.

I'm living in the United Kingdom by the way.

I prefer the peace of mind and so I buy from the physical Apple Store.

A simple answer? Always buy from Apple.

Apple are so much easier to deal with for returns and problems than Amazon.

I appreciate all the responses, many thanks.

It's just that I'm a little tight on money but I'm sure I can fork out for the premium of having Apples service.
