    I've had my original 5 for 3 months but I dropped it and then it started having screen troubles so I got it replaced

    Since December 12, 2012. No real issues, except occasionally my music will restart when I'm downloading new music via iTunes app.

    November 2012. Replaced March 2013 for a power button problem. Everything else perfect on both.

    I got mine on launch day, but haven't had any problems so far. It's been enjoyable.

    i've had mine since launch, then 2 weeks ago, i got a replacement since the camera lens started to fill with dust and lint. Then, my replacement i just got started having rattling issues, and it's not the camera lens - when you pick up the phone or just tilt it gently, you hear something loose rolling around in the phone... pbly gonna get another replacement.. unacceptable QC, oh well, the customer service is great..

    Power button failure, battery life issues, GPS/cellular connectivity problems. The launch devices were pretty bad. Replacement seems good though.

    I've had mine since launch day and not a single problem. I only dislike the black coating on the aluminum, I haven't dropped it once but simple things (who knows what) have caused the silver to become exposed. And anytime my phone crashes it is just jailbreak related, which I understand.

    Have had mine since the end of December. Had a problem with it getting stuck on No Service after switching back and forth between 3G and LTE. Battery life was also abysmal. A quick "restore as a new iPhone" procedure cleared up both issues, for the most part. Otherwise, I'm loving this thing.

    Had it since a week after launch...works perfectly and pristine, out-of-the-box appearance. I use it naked, but keep it in a Sena Ultra Slim case for carrying.

    I am very pleased with it...

    Sprint, iPhone 5, 64GB black. Preordered and got it on launch day (Sept. 21, 2012). Dropped only once, but had a microphone issue before the drop. Got it replaced some time in November/December. The replacement has been rock solid with no issues.

    It's now doing the scratch/scuff/nick thing, but I'm actually liking the character it imparts. Nothing really noticeable yet and I do have a black matte paint pen for any issues I can't live with.

    Have not dropped this one yet, but been close a few times! :eek:

    I've had mine since launch and no issues. I've dropped it like on the carpet in my room and inside the car a few times. It's still in great condition. My sister on the other hand :| it's been abused

    I got one on launch day, had ghost armor on it and the Glas tR on it and I dropped mine in gasoline about two weeks ago, had to get a new one. Both phones are great, no issues. I work in the petroleum industry in case you are wondering why I dropped mine in gas. However I think the camera in this new phone is better than the other, there is no corner distortion at all. Can't remember if the other one had corner distortion, but overall I feel this one is better. The iPhone 5 is superb. Love it!

    No real issues here...however, a recent update to 6.1.3 has shown terrible battery life for me.

    Since late November. In March pictures started to show dark spots on them: dust. Took it to the Apple store and they replaced it. New one is prefect
