    So i'm on my 3rd replacement due to other issues, this one is perfect other than two tiny specs of dust under the rear camera lens, my photos are ok and it doesnt appear to causing any issues

    I really dont wanna exchange again incase i get something worse so is this gonna cause me any issues? will my photos look ok?

    Statments are not usually followed by question marks, i just want to know if i should be concerned about this and have others got the same issue?

    If you do a search you will see that others have had this.

    Ok i searched dust under camera lens and didnt really find much, do you know if they just lived with it or got a replacement, the thing is im on my 3rd replacement only bought it last week, the other two had other issues i dont want to risk getting one that is much worse, is it going to cause me any issues do you think?

    In the past some have replaced and others did not. Dust seems to come in the mute switch.

    It is up to you to decide. There is always risk.

    Ok, then can i ask you this, if it was yours and it was otherwise perfect would you be bothered or want to exchange it for two dust specs under the camera lens?

    Why can't people make choices for themselves? It is you that has to decide if you are willing to live with it or not. I have not even looked that closely at my camera lens to see if there is something there. I am quite happy with my images and that is what is important to me.

    I would replace it because if you pay that much for premium product, you deserve to get a perfect one.
    I know there is no perfect iphone, but its worth to try.
    I have got replacement iphone which came with 'samsung' chip due to battery leak(clicking noise when harder pressed in logo area). It was replaced with 'new' iphone with tsmc chip.
    Now Im satisfied with it even if its not perfect either (little scratch and clicking noise home button). But im afraid if I replace it again it will came with samsung chip again :).
    But in your case, I would definately replace it because camera is very important to me.

    Yeah i guess im paranoid that's all and a little anal with my iphones, just wanted other opinions to help me make up my mind, i'd rather have a couple of dust specs than a naf looking sim tray recess or a chipped home button ring

    With the help of your advise yes, is that not the point of a forum?

    For some yes, but for others they make their own choices. I do not allow other members to influence mine.

    Glad you got it worked out and are ready to move on with life.

    I don't have time or intrest to see what defects my device have and till date not even a single replacement just buy and then move on and if you worry that much about 2 dots of dust in camera lens (that Can't be seen until you put your nose in camera lens)then there will be never a good time for you

    What is this battery leak you speak of? I am having clicking on my iPhone 6s under the Apple logo. Took it in last week and were unable to replicate it so was offered a screen replacement. I declined the replacement as it is not the screen. Any info you could share would be appreciated as I'm sure it's the same problem.

    At first I didnt know it was battery leak. Just turned it in apple store and said to them that whenever I press that spot it produces little crack sound. Some of the iphones from apple store did it too (I assume there is acceptable scale of whats normal). Personally I think that neither should have that cracking noise, because that comes from battery (service results: battery leakage, battery bloated), and they gave me replacement iphone due to my warrenty.

    The genius I spoke with never heard of it. This is a replacement iPhone I received last month due to a faulty lightning port. I am truly disappointed, I have another appointment tomorrow so we shall see.
