    Another good story bro...
    On September 25 I went to pick up an iPhone 5, I told the Apple employee that I would be checking my new AT&T white 16GB iPhone 5 for a good 10 minutes before deciding if that was an acceptable iPhone 5 or not... After checking everything 4 or 5 times... Not a single defect...

    Fast forward to today, I went to pick a second iPhone 5, same configuration as before, same routine checking it... And... Perfect... Not even a single little scratch... Just perfect...

    To be honest, we had 4 iPhones for the family on launch day, not one defect. Thought mine had a scratch on the back but it was just some dirt that rubbed off with some iKlear.

    Obviously Apple has addressed the QC issue and we will be seeing less of these scratched IPHONES

    This should be a hidden Game Center achievement.

    Nice to hear good stories. I'm in the same boat. I ordered a 16gb black for my wife and a 32gb black for myself from Apple's site. Got them both on launch day and they were both perfect.

    It probably was one of the new batches that fixed the faulty manufacturing

    Check the build week

    The OP had 2 perfect white ip5, I thought the problem is with the black ip5. BTW my 64gig white is perfect too.

    I have never had a physical defect on any of my Apple purchases from 2 iMac, 5 MacBook Pros, about a dozen iPods, and 6 iPhones. Either I am not picky enough or I am the luckiest man alive.

    Glad to hear yours is perfect - as is mine.

    The levels of baseless speculation and mythology on this forum are epic.

    Had a perfect black one launch day, traded it for a perfect white one. Had to swap out the white one (because of a sim problem on sprints side), and got another perfect white on. All from apple or the apple store

    My phone was delivered a few days ago - it is flawless. I took it into a dealer to swap the SIMs between my two accounts and the girl behind the counter was jealous because mine does not rattle like she said hers does?

    I upgraded from a 4 and I really like everything about it. I gave the 4 to my wife who was moving from and old Samsung sliding keyboard type phone so she is very happy.
