    What's are some issues that a new iphone may have? I want to make sure everything is okay. I have noticed the whites on the screen are slightly yellow in hue compared to my htc one. Is this normal?

    Even display backlighting
    Dead or stuck pixels
    Straight body
    No gap between glass and metal
    Firm, clicky home button
    Camera results
    Level print for "iPhone" branding

    Well I'm sorry I paid almost $1000 for it so I wanna make sure I didn't get a lemon. For us peasants 1k is a lot of money.

    You shouldn't be seeking for problems...let your phone run its course.
    It's like saying what kind of problems should you seek out about your spouse/partner.

    Well if you're a peasant (of course, real peasants don't have cell phones), you can save some cash by not wasting gas on trips to the Genius Bar for issues with "level print for iPhone branding".

    Well, am sorry you pay $1000 before and then face the aftermaths. Common sense tells me you learn what you getting before you pay for it.

    Not that I believe you anyway....

    What? So you don't believe I have an iphone 6? Do you want me to post a pic with my username? Also I don't know what aftermath you're talking about.

    Best thing you can do is just go and enjoy your phone. :apple:

    Even a $1000 does not buy absolute perfection.

    I don't want you do do anything. All am saying is that I doubt a person who opens a threat to discus issues that is not having.

    There have been quite a few issues with the iPhone 6 in general. I think it's a fair question to ask. These forums have become so nasty.

    In a way you are correct; however, the point I believe members are trying to make here is that there is no reason to seek out issues. For me, and I consider myself a fairly normal person, I take it from the box, look it over for big cosmetic issues (dents & scratches), I run my finger alongside the bezel and glass to make sure it is set (my first iPad had a corner where the glass was raised), I move the vibrate switch, hit all buttons, turn it on and start to use it.

    If I did not detect a dead or stuck pixel off the bat then I'm not looking for them. I'm not running a stupid test or anything of the sort. I didn't even check for a bend right away. I did a day later just to see after I had it in my pocket for an afternoon. It goes from the box to a case with a screen protector. Nothing big.

    I think basic common sense tells you to look for the obvious. This site can tell you what to look for without even starting a thread. Common issues are bending, which happens after the purchase and in some cases there are scratches and such out of the box. My iPad mini had a dent in the back which resulted in a return because that could have voided my warranty.

    OP: Enjoy your phone.

    IF you look for problems, you'll probably find some.

    I would just enjoy the phone.

    That's really bad. I'd return it.

    Peasants shouldn't be buying iPhones. Or pretending they buy them. Or whatever the OP (who has a history of posts like this) thinks they're doing.

    Peasants should be working hard to become non-peasants, not blowing $1000 they can't afford on a luxury item. Especially if "problems" are all they look for (again, a running theme of the OP).

    Go buy a flawless flip phone! I saw one at Target for 9.99! That way you can go post about all its problems on it's forum and save $990.01 ($$$ that you clearly need, as the self imposed "peasant" implies).

    :p

    If there's nothing obvious then sit back and have fun with it...once you start looking for stuff you go down a path that isn't reversible.

    Is this post real? You're looking for a defective device? Who are you, the cellphone inspector?

    And a quick search will bring up issues others have had or are having.

    You don't understand sarcasm do you? hint: I'm not a peasant.

    ----------

    Yes it's for real. I hold myself morally responsible to make sure I get a perfect phone because I'll be selling it in two years and according to my moral compass, it's wrong to sell a defective phone.

    Why exactly would I not look for defects after having bought a product? Is it better to wait until the return period/warranty is over and then discover the problem by accident and lower the resale value of the phone?

    Agreed. OP, do you treat all of your purchases like this? What do you do when you get a new car?:rolleyes:

    If it doesn't charge in the microwave you should send it back.
