I recently sold my 5 to get the 5S and I wanted to find out, if there are still issues regarding the quality of the display. I've read a lot of articles and threads erverywhere, especially a quiet old thread on the official Apple discussion board. As it turns out, the quality issues go on... but one user at the official discussion board had a very interesting theory. He alleged Apple selling the good iPhones to the carriers and the 'bad' ones at its retail and online stores: Full post: https://discussions.apple.com/message/22686173#22686173 Then I looked at some devices from my iPhone5-owning buddies and asked where they bought it. Result: Most faulty iPhones come from Apples own retail and online stores, most flawless iPhones from carriers. It's not a sample survey, but it matches the allegation of that qouted user. So lets make poll! Where did you bought your 5/5S and was the first device you got faulty in some way or flawless?
