    let's say you do wait a month....
    -you'd have to wait a while to then see if THAT batch of phones have an reports of defects.
    -then while waiting for those reports you start seeing more rumors of what's coming in the NEXT iphone.
    -You get interested in those rumors and wait a little longer to see if the rumors get substantiated.
    -By the time you're done waiting for THOSE rumors to pan out, you wonder again if you should then buy your iphone 7 at that point.
    -In which case enough time would have passed so that the next iphone is just a few months away and people will suggest to WAIT because release of the next generation phone will drop the price of the iphone 7 or have enough features to justify getting the latest model.
    -Next generation phone is released and then see the top of this post (incrementing the iphone generation number by 1)

    Any iPhone, including the "new batch" could have a stuck or dead pixel or a number of other problems. I guess I am lucky and had few defects with any of my iPhones for years now.

    If yours has a problem, can you not return it to where you purchased it in India?

    I have a launch day 7 Plus in the same condition. I'm not denying that some of the phones have problems, just that mine doesn't.
