    and dents and screen problem
    or even missing cables..screws and earpods
    I mean this iPhone is amazing but 10-30 percent have problems
    I can't believe those people didn't do a quality check
    I mean imagine having an iphone with a crack screen shipped and you have to wait 2-4 weeks just to get it replaced...because of human error :mad:

    Those errors existed before, they were just rejected during QC before so they never entered a final product box.

    You can thank Tim Cook.

    If what I'm reading is true, Apple chose quantity over quality. Rush the product to the customer's hand even if it's sub-standard.

    Really sad from a company that revolutionized the cell phone industry to be reduced to "let the chips fall where they may...", and we'll deal with the replacements if they cry loud enough.

    I don't know whose fault it is, but there's obviously a problem here...

    And I'm one of the ones that got a near perfect phone...

    Yes, I'm sure 80% of the phones have serious flaws.

    80%?? even if that is a little exaggeration, I don't think that all those phones will have something wrong with them. I think the problem is with the publicity, meaning you don't hear about all the phones that work perfectly and have nothing wrong with them, you only hear about the few that are broken and have things wrong with them.

    I bet less then 1% of the phones shipped have issues.

    Percentage is hard to prove considering most customers will except a cosmetically inferior phone over the hassle of replacements. And considering a replacement can take nearly a month to recieve, I can understand...

    Still doesn't make it right.

    Are you using macrumors as your source for that?! As 95 pc of the problems reported oh here aren't really problems I would revise your 10 to 30 pc to around 0.5 to 1!

    You've got guys posting pictures of scratches you need an electron microscope to see and other complaining of rattles if the phone is tapped in a specific place. Madness. The iPhone 5 is fine.

    Definitely not right. But overall, I'd say its a low percentage and not a major issue.
