That's not good. You shouldn't accept anything that is damaged out of the box. You're giving Apple a pass on something that is not trivial. What will you accept next time? A sub standard screen? Staticky speaker? Loose buttons? You see where I'm going with this? If you tell them scratches are okay then you are telling them you'll accept imperfect devices. That is not acceptable, especially on a $650-$850 phone.Hey guys,
I'm on my third iPhone due to scuffs. Today the third arrived and I was greeted by a little scuff on the top. I'm to the point where I'm done caring! Im just gonna enjoy the worlds greatest smartphone in my pocket.
Agreed. But never, ever coming out of the box.I don't own a single physical item that doesn't show wear and tear on it.
My logitech mouse?
My Mazda 3?
My Canon 7D?
Everything I own has some place where I can point to and say "yeah, this has clearly been used." And yet, somehow, people have complained for over 5 years that Apple products work the same way.
Look, I feel for the people whose phones are coming messed up out of the box. They should complain. You should get a few days to feel like a king.
But anything past a week? Scuffs? Scrapes? Bruises? It's called life, it's gonna happen.
That does seem to be new this year so I'm giving these folks a pass to complain. But, as usual, there's a much bigger crowd of folks who seem offended that the iPhone is even capable of being damaged. I have no sympathy for those folks.Agreed. But never, ever coming out of the box.
I noticed the same thing in the Apple store I visited on Monday. No scuffs anywhere. I've received two iPhone 5 models with no scuffs or visible damage. Just lucky, I guess.I have been to the Apple store 3 times since i5 has launched... none of the display models have scuffs. I know... I checked them all!
