    Hello, I recently got my iPhone 6 64GB Gold Unlocked.

    It has a small gap on the right side, between the glass and plastic surrounding bezel.

    Do any of your white phones have this? I'm not gonna get it swapped for such a small thing but I was just wondering about your guys' phones.

    Honestly I can't see if I even have one because I have the black model. It might be there but I'm too scared to look because I'm probably lying to myself about how 'perfect' it is.

    On a sidenote though: it's pretty likely swappable. So don't hesitate to put on helmet hair and drive a Grand Caravan to the nearest Apple Store and Offended Soccer Mom your way to a new iPhone.

    It might seem like a joke but my Offended Soccer Mom impression worked wonders for me over the years.

    Hahahaha, thanks for the laugh bro :)

    Here's what happened: I went to the store, got it exchanged (I was under my 14 days, yay). The new phone not only had the same gap, but the apple logo on the back also had a huge gap all the way around it and the text on the back was very crooked. Not just a little, it was super noticeable. I am pretty OCD but come on, a normal person could notice all that.

    I got my money back, bought a used 32GB iPhone 5s, and now I'm happy. The 5s actually feels more solid :/

    Should have never gotten rid of my original 5s. The 6 is such a disappointment in terms of build quality.

    That really sucks. I don't know if you guys get really unlucky with your phones or if I've always been super lucky.

    Either way, I'm almost kind of envious of you. :p Every time I look at a 5s I'm just blown away by how much better it is. It's probably the last supervised design by Steve Jobs, because the 6 is worse in almost every way (for the back at least). Too thin, protruding camera, ugly bands...ugh.

    Well don't forget to update the sig! :p

    Actually to be honest I left out the past 6 months of my life. Before this, I went through EIGHT (8) iPhone 6s from many different Apple and carrier stores. I decided to give it the last go with this one and it backfired yet again.

    It really is astonishing that Apple, the company that prides itself at small details is ******** up this badly with the iPhone 6. It is a poorly designed, cheap, faulty product. I really, really hope they fix it with the 6s or 7.

    And what's funny is that right now iPhone 5s sales doubled from 10 to 20%. I wonder why...

    Haha I'll get on that signature now :p
