    I don't deny that other phones aren't good. I had an HTC Touch diamond, Moto Q, Palm Treo 850, HTC Touch, etc.. in the past. All fantastic phones - but, the quality control simply isn't there. I don't tell people to buy Apple because I buy Apple - in the past 2 years, 15 of my close friends switched to Android because they got "bored" of iOS. 6 months to 2 years later they're back with iPhones because too many annoying things happened on their Android phones.

    It sounds like you want an Android - go for it - but my money is that your next phone will be an iPhone 7 or 7S.

    Not many people are saying that every Apple phone is perfect. I'm sure not. Look at the problems people are posting in here about the latest and greatest phone to come out of the Apple plants.

    But Apple is good about fixing their problems. People can return their phones because "the screen is too yellow" or "there's a miniscule dark spot that you can see if I squeeze the phone just right and then circle it". Good luck with most Android phones on that...

    In accordance with the forum rules for debating (section below), I'm asking you to back that fact up by providing specific quotes.

    I agree. Buy what makes you happy. But perhaps look at buying from a local reputable company, as I said many posts ago. It will likely decrease your odds of another bad experience.

    I don't disagree, but to have all those issues with a supposedly 'new' device is not common. Plus it was in an unsealed box. Someone dropped a lemon in there and took off with the good one.

    -The box was unsealed.
    -The battery was dead (I've gotten refurbs from Apple before as replacements and they all had a battery with some charge).
    -One problem maybe, but all the evidence points to something else.

    The OP has claimed several times that the box was factory sealed when he received it.

    What country are you in that someone who sold you a defective product doesn't have to take it back within the first few days of having sold it to you?!? I have never heard of a place that doesn't have at least SOME level of basic consumer protection like that.

    Oops I missed that. Just read it. Thanks. I'm not sure what's different about 'Apple sealed'- its cellophane.

    I still stand by my conclusion.

    Unless you bought the phone directly from Foxconn and picked it up directly from the factory it was not from Foxconn hands to yours.

    When an OP proposes a problem, and at every turn of the corner, probable solution, they present you with a road block. I am out of the country. I am going to get an Android phone, because iPhone is no good. A person who knows and enjoys Apple products, does not simply give up on a bad unit. They don't give up, first sight of error, and their solution is to go Android.

    Battery dead
    Slow download
    Static audio
    Ghost touch

    Only logical thing to explain this, is the logic board. But I would think it would completely stop functioning by now. However the story is changing, isn't it?

    This is troll behavior. They aren't here to seek answers, but instead, stir the pot.

    mho.

    What's up with WhatsApp? We know it's hacked software anyway.

    All i can say is OP iPhone is not normal Apple quality.

    It is hard to believe a person did so much research prior purchase but didnt look into return or repair policy. If OP really being that unlucky, he should do more charity....

    You have got a lemon, mate.
    For start, any iPhone are about 50-60% charged when brand new and sealed. Anything below that level of charge means an used/refurbished/defective device and should be returned immediately

    The lesson is: don't buy an iPhone in a country not directly supported by Apple...
    Btw here in Italy, even Premium resellers follow Apple support policy

    Let's see, you probably bought a refurbished model. Technically still 'brand new'. ;)

    It was probably a defective phone which its previous owner had replaced. One year on, someone came along and wanted to buy last year's iPhone. With the factories in China now full speed ahead in churning out the 6S phones, where do you think the iPhone 6 came from? :D

    No hard feelings, just raw capitalism. :cool:

    Out of interest, what country are you in that doesn't have any consumer protection legislation that would protect you from receiving a brand new faulty product that you can't return for refund or repair?

    Since the battery was at 0% charge, I even doubt it was new (if this story is true).
    No one manufacturer is so stupid to sell a lithium battery at 0%. The battery is ruined forever.

    Good point, I don't think I've ever seen a new lithium battery with 0% in before.

    @Old geek 959

    Please tell us, what country is this?
