    I thought factories take extra care not to scratch new products and they're packed tightly around protective foam for transit. So how do some units still get scratched, dented Etc

    The phones are made by humans, not magical unicorns. What would you expect?

    When you purchase eyeglasses they don't come scratched, so why should an iPhone or better yet a display on a MacBook.

    Okay so I guess once a company gets to be a big producer, it's okay to degrade quality. Well, I guess so, McDonalds would be a great example of a company that produces a terrible product that people keep going back to buy.

    No body is perfects. You expect too much from a product that is assemblied by human and not android.

    A significant portion of my friends at college have either an iPhone/iPod or both an iPhone/iPod and a Mac computer and I have never ever heard a story about a brand new product being scratched/dented/etc.

    Of course, if it were to happen I'd expect a free replacement if the damage was bad enough.

    My quote was in response to this:

    I agree with what you are saying... For the prices, I expect nothing less than the best.

    It's impossible for anything on the production line to be 100% perfect. Things get scratched after being used anyway.

    I'm very fussy about the quality of my display - anything less than 99.9% perfect then I will ask for an exchange.

    You're right I actually didn't. I'm spotty with visiting the forums and wasn't aware that it was so prevalent with the iPhone 5.
