It's that time again. I'm set to upgrade my iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6s, and I'm thrilled to experience the wonders of Touch ID, bigger screen, 2GB RAM, and 3D Touch. But there's one thing that's holding me back: I'm afraid I'll get a defect. My iPhone 5 arrived flawless. The screen was perfect. There were no cosmetic defects out of the box. All the ports/buttons worked just fine. But I fear the iPhone 6s will break this lucky streak. I've seen the multi-page topic of iPhone 6s factory defects, and the more I read the posts, the more I fear the same will happen to me. What if I get a yellow tinted or uneven backlight display? What if one of the antenna bands arrives scratched? And worse, with the Samsung VS TSMC chip controversy, what if my iPhone comes with the undesired SoC? With all these potential problems, it seems nearly impossible to obtain that perfect iPhone like I managed to pull off with my 5. I understand if I do indeed get a defect, I can return and exchange the iPhone, but trust me, I really don't want to deal with the Genius Bar for a long while. This year alone, I've visited them at least four times to deal with minor MacBook Air issues (and eventually ended up with a chipped bezel). I'd absolutely hate to waste my and the Genius Bar's time once again for issues so minor normal people would scoff at. One can also argue I avoid this altogether and stay with my iPhone 5. But that's not how I want to solve it. I WANT the 6s. I WANT the new specs/features. What I DON'T WANT are the hoops and flaws my anal retentive self wouldn't be able to tolerate. Unfortunately, from what I see here, it just seems way too likely I'll end up with these flaws. So what's the best thing I can do to overcome my iPhone anxiety? Have any of you guys been in the same position as me? tldr: I'm afraid I'll end up with a defective iPhone 6s. How do I prepare myself for my fate?
