    What really disturbs me is all the criticism that is being placed on apple. Let anyone of these ignorant people try and come up with something so prestine and truly remarkable and run the business like they do. Okay so the maps was a bit of a fluke but still has a lot of potential to become wonderful. Just give time to gather reviews and fix the problem. Sooner or later you will have an update and the maps will be fixed, not bad for a first attempt at all though.

    In terms of the phone though I honestly feel like I am the only 1 who received a perfect phone out of the box (Iphone 5). Every other thread is about "omg the scratches wahhh apple sucks wahhh im going to my 4s wahh" like come on people. Do something 5 million times and tell me you wont screw up a little bit lets be real here, and it was not even that big of a deal.

    Anyways, in an attempt to gain consumer confidence and install it back into apple, who hear has received a perfect Iphone 5?

    MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :apple:and I love and enjoy every minute of it.

    What's better than a complain thread? A thread complaining about a complain thread.

    a complaint about the thread complaining about the complaints??

    it wasnt meant to be a complaint- it was meant to get a look from a consumer standpoint of the "damaged" phones vs the "undamaged phones"

    There is no such thing as a perfect iPhone or any mass produced consumer product for that matter.

    Your iPhone isn't "perfect" you just haven't discovered it's flaw(s) yet. Or more than likely the flaw is internal. I received a white IP5 and do not have any of the problems that have been reported in this forum. But that doesn't mean I have a perfect phone.

    I would like to complain about the thread TITLE.

    Is it hard to add a few words. I wasted my time reading this crap.

    It's an Apple apologist thread.

    The CEO of the company came out and publicly admitted the Maps app was garbage yet you're going to convince us it's just an update away from being good? Google maps took years to develop into what it is and has many more people working on it consistently. There was an article not too long ago stating that Google has over 7,000 people working on Maps alone.

    People getting visibly damaged phones out of the box after paying almost $1,000 is to be expected right?

    Almost $1K? Slight exaggeration there.

    Every new major product launch this board reminds me of my gym in January.

    All the "new years resolution" people show up and make a fuss. Soon they're gone and things are back to normal.

    I'm really looking forward to these boards getting back to normal because all these absurd threads (one right after the other) are getting on my nerd nerves.

    I don't have to be able to create what I criticise.

    Are you saying that only engineering, advertising, hardware designing, graphic designing, software developing, CEOs can criticise Apple?

    A 64GB iPhone 5 at full retail is $849. Throw in taxes. That's not almost $1k?

    After taxes it's more than $1k.

    I think Whitestar cruise lines said the same of the RMS Titanic

    As much as I think some of the critism is overblown its hardley undeserved. Between scuffgate and Maps, Apple got themselves a black eye, which given the speed with which they have been growing and the (sometimes unrealistic) expectations that have been placed on them was probably inevitable. I'm OK with a couple of missteps as long as Apple sets things right and learns from their mistakes. For the most part I'm OK with with the bashing Apples taking, people have a right to be upset when their expectations, assuming they were realistic expectations, are not met.

    What I think will be most interesting about scuffgate/maps is not why they happened but how Tim's approach to setting things right differs from Steve's.

    Just to add, my iPhone 5 was perfect out of the box as well. That lasted about 4 days before the anodizing on small section of the beveled edge wore off.

    A SIM free/non-contract iPhone 5 64GB in the UK is £700 which equates to roughly $1,129.

    You're not the only one, mine is fine. I'm sure I could find something less than perfect about it, but I'll pass.

    I have no problems with the hardware, it's the software that I have a couple of issues with.

    1. iTunes won't let me search (blank white page). It worked fine yesterday.
    2. When I tap on the history button in iTunes, there's no way to get back to the main part of the app so I have to return to the home screen and close it in the multitasking bar if I want to use it again.
    3. Siri struggles to find albums with numbers in them. It translates what I'm saying perfectly, but if my album is called "Hardcore Underground Disc 1" Siri will translate what I'm saying to "Hardcore Underground Disc One" and it seems to play "Hardcore Underground Disc 3" every time!
    4. Maps are atrocious right now.

    Still LOVE my phone though, don't regret buying it at all :D

    Apple screwed up in more way that one. If you can't admit it your just a blind fanboy. I'm a huge Apple fan and have the complete ecosystem but they have made a number of screw ups with the 5 launch.

    the point is to have a title that draws readers in - if you just state everything in the title whats the point of reading it then? Not to mention no one has a gun to your ahead, I apologize that the title does not fit your standards but hey if you dont like the station change the channel.

    If you take into consideration how long apple actually worked on their maps vs google working on their apps, who has the most efficient product? Honestly apple does. As far as quality of course googles maps are better no doubt, but if you factor in development and timing apple managed to pull a decent, not spectacular app, which is just that an app, into something with a lot of potential.

    mine came with a knick on the bezel and I still think its the most perfect apple product I've ever purchased :)

    some people will stare at the body of their phone ten times longer than the screen:confused:
