I was all excited to get my phone 2 days ahead of the expected delivery date, however upon opening the box I noticed a pencil tip size ding in the bezel on the top front. Through the black and easily noticeable both by touch and sight.

I'm seriously amazed this got sent out. I hope they have some new black 32 gigs to exchange with or I guess I'm keepin my 4S.

The worst part is if it was just a small scratch I would have been cool because I'm sure I'll scratch it, but a dent? I would have to try pretty damn hard to dent it like that.

What a bummer!

What surprises me is that you waited almost a week to post something about it.

So you'll give up an iPhone 5 and go back to the 4s? Why not get the white iPhone 5?

At the iPhone hacks section.
The 4s looks better, works nearly the same, and LTE is a gimmick unless you have it in your town.
I'll have to disagree.
The i5 looks better, its thinner, lighter with a bigger screen.
It doesnt work the same, it has way faster performance due to the faster cpu, gpu, double the ram memory and newer tech all around.
And LTE is great, its not just a gimmick. If you dont have it in your town you will eventually.
This speed below makes it all worth it:)

I still dont see nothing but your scratched up laptop or whatever it is in the back:D
Is it a dent or ding you said?

I guess it's a ding, the scratched thing behind it is the packaging from the box.

Actually I checked, the 4s does look better.

Also, all that extra CPU junk still feels like a 4s.

End of story.
