    So on the day that I got my new iphone 6 I saw this tiny mark at the bottom (looks like a scratch) and I have no idea where it came from. As soon as it was taken out of the box the best buy lady put the new case on it and screen protector right away and I babied it since then.

    I was gonna tell the lady about it after, but I was afraid she would just laugh at me.

    Since I have a 14 day warranty, do you think best buy will replace this? Or am I just too crazy and paranoid?

    Here are the pics:


    I know it's really, really small but it's been driving me nuts. I am really OC (or whatever you call it) when it comes to these things. :(

    how do I post the photos? It asked me to copy and paste the url, which I did.

    But anyways, I guess I'm gonna have to just get over with it. :(

    A URL that we can see properly requires that the photos be on a web server.
    If you can't figure out the attachments thing, upload the photos to imgur, and they'll give you a URL that will work for all of us to see.

    I'd say it'd be pretty hard to find one that is 100% perfect, but if it bothers you that much get it exchanged while you can, but you should know these phones are pretty delicate and you'll eventually get more scratches.

    "Afraid"? Rubbish - if I am paying MY money, I'll have it perfect thanks. Man up.

    I don't see an issue, but since it bothers you, return and get a replacement.

    When I turned up for my reserved iPhone 6 Plus and used the set up area I placed the phone down while my iCloud backup uploaded and proceeded to look over the  leather case for it.

    While I was doing this the specialist tapped me on the shoulder and said once the upload completed could I then wipe it off.

    As I was looking puzzled and asked why -> another iPhone 6 plus handset landed next to me and the guy pointed out a scratch a few mm's long on the edge which would have been covered by the case ,but it would have annoyed the heck out of me and at the end of the day I'm spending £600+ for the phone.

    Very impressed by this guys attention to detail and in your case I'd definitely swap it out before it preys on your mind.

    On the flip side I'm sure some wouldn't be bothered as they'd think well it's going to get marked up anyways.
