How badly misaligned are your front facing iPhone 6 cameras? I try to take good care of my Apple things so I can resell them at a good price but for a new phone I don't think that's acceptable.

Share your pics of your front facing iPhone 6 camera to compare.

I also have flakey wifi, random reboots, and a blotchy screen and the phone is less than a month old. Kind of wishing I kept my 5s.

Lo,l it's not the front facing camera that is not aligned. It's your protective film that is not aligned properly. Camera is fine.

Screen protector alignment doesn't matter. I'm not going to be baited into a pissing match. Thanks for the laugh.

This is false. I have the same issue with my phone and just got it replaced through apple.





no screen protector.


The replacement I got is flawless.

Bump. Im on my 5th replacement for this. My last replacement out of the box had this issue, and I had them grab another one.

And half the iphone demo units in the store had the issue too. And even funnier, the idiot at the front that checked me in on my last visit said he couldnt see the defect. Well I asked him if he had a new iphone and he did. Well he whipped it out and guess what....? LOL the silly idiot's own phone had it worse than mine and miraculously he now can see the defect.

What a joke.

Yeah paid 849 for my iPhone 6, I would not be happy if Apple gave me a refurb iPhone 6 to replace it. But I also have a crappy home button I have been looking to get fixed anyway.

You exchanged 5 phones for this non-issue?

My phone has this identical issue.

It doesn't bother me and the camera works ok, but I also care about resale value. I have AppleCare+, though, so I guess I could wait until later to have it replaced.

I agree - these phones are expensive; I myself paid $799 at Best Buy for a no-contract Verizon iPhone 6
Was it in the last 2 weeks? I also bought it from BB but not before having them price match Verizon first. If its with in the 14 day return go get that $50 back

**EDIT**
Nevermind, this is an old thread, way past 14 day return, lol.
