    Our family has purchased 5 iPhone 7's over the last few weeks as we are all upgrading. We got 4 Matt blacks and a gold. I noticed all the phones had minor scuffs and scratched on the antenna bands straight out of the boxes. Anyone else notice this? Not a big deal but not great QC.

    You could have exchanged them with no issue within the 14 day period.

    There shouldn't be any scratches on the antenna bands. Appears to be quality control issues with five iPhones. That said, You could address this with Apple. It shouldn't affect the iPhone, although it can, if the scratches were deep enough penetrating the bands.

    It's more of a cosmetic thing. They are minor scratches and don't effect the phone. It's just annoying because the price of these phones

    No scratches on any of my families or friends iphone 7's that I saw so far.
    All 5 of your new iphones came out of the box with scratched up antenna bands like that? Or they happened after a few weeks of use?

    Can you show us what they look like?
    You didn't try returning them or contacting Apple?

    My iPhone 7 matte black 128gb had what I would describe as three dents in the bottom antenna band out of the box. Unfortunately no Apple stores here in Ireland, and the reseller I bout it from said once the box is open I can't return it.
