    Someone posted the same thing earlier. People joked that it was a limited edition, and/or that it would become a collector's item like the "upside down Jenny" stamp.

    How does it look when the photo isn't skewed to one side?

    The apple logo looks worse in the picture, id keep it next one could have a bad screen, and so on. My 5S is like this too, apparently they haven't fixed that issue, Its not Etched, its stamped i believe.

    Maybe it would be easier to tell if the photo was taken directly above and not at an angle. I don't see any issues from that photo.

    Now that you have posted the other two photos I can tell, but it isn't terrible. That really would not bother me at all, but you have to decide for yourself what bothers you.

    I have the same thing...Looks like it's only happening on the silver models from the postings I've seen so far.

    A lot of people are saying yea Just put a case on it, live with it, etc. Honestly why should any of us have to live with a defect on anything that we spend money on?

    If you bought a designer shirt that had lop sided writing on it would you wear it? I doubted...you would return it.

    My new 6 has writting that is just as lop sided as the OP's, I'll make a decision next week if it's worth it to exchange, only thing holding me back is the horror stories of countless people who end up with a phone with even more issues than the original.

    Something like this shouldn't happen with a company that has more cash on hand than the US Govt.

    I took it to apple store and spoke with and showed it to one of the managers. He said, I see it but Apple does quality control and would not let it through if they thought it wasn't ok. I said I believe that they missed it. unbelievable. Its the principle. It doesn't affect function but as you said, it shouldn't happen.

    Is this reason enough for a return?

    Warranty says hardware defects...wondering if this is considered a 'hardware defect'

    If you had a $55k BMW, and the factory misaligned the BMW logo on the back of the car, would you return the vehicle? Would they even let you???

    If you're using while staring at the back of your iPhone you're definitely holding it wrong.

    this aint no $60K plus purchase, i purchased a new lexus ISF and there was a paint chip by the headlights with 4 miles on the car from factory, nothings perfect in this world, but this is a phone not a $65K car less options at that point with a car, that chip still bothers me but who sees it but me ;-)

    This isn't a BMW it's a phone that can be easily returned. Try to hang in there and keep up with the conversation. :rolleyes:
