    This is more for the space grey users. Anything would be harder to notice on the silver. But I noticed a small white dot on the bottom of the touch id- no its not dirt, and I also noticed a small small scratch on the inner rim of the circle. Anyone notice these? Please look at your phone and tell me LOL. My OCD is kicking in again. I just got the phone today. Its not noticeable unless you really look.

    This is seriously bothering me. Even though you have to look hard to see it. Catches in certain light. Its like a mark from when they chiselled the crystal or something.

    I have it on macro zoom so it appears bigger then what it is.
    I dont know if I should take it back or not. I think they would think that I am crazy.

    My space grey has the white bit on its home button and it is annoying because you want to wipe it off.

    The phone is being returned due to an unrelated issue.

    Have you talked to Apple about this? This sounds serious and I feel for you in that the scratch bothers you.

    That would annoy me. My space grey 5s button is fine.

    If it bugs you, yes. How long have you had phone?

    Take it to an Apple store. They will replace it there.

    Nope. Apple gives you a 30 day full return policy on all iphones, no matter where you got it. They will give you a new phone. Easier to deal with them as best buy may gives you a run around.

    Ok so I can go to jump plus then? It's an apple reseller. They only sell apple stuff there! And that's if they have it in stock correct?

    I have never heard of Jump. You have a choice to take it to an Apple Store, or Best Buy. I doubt Jump would do that for you.

    Yah I'm thinking that too. So best buy could say no?

    Not really. They have a return policy too. I would go there then and exchange it. They just might act like they cant see the blemish. So you might have to push the issue a bit. But since it's one day, you will get a replacement.

    Ok hope so. I just can't stop looking at it. It shouldn't be there. I hope they have some in stock. I had to wait on the reserve list for 2 weeks just to get this phone :/

    Good luck! I hope they have one there for you too. If not, call Apple.
