I have yet to purchase my iphone 5 and I'm wondering we do actually know about "scuffgate" before I decide white or black. it. For example from what I can tell from the blogs, black is more prone to show blemishes, etc. What I'm curious about is.... 1. Is there some sort of thought here that the earliest ones shipped were the worst and it's perhaps something they've corrected? Are we seeing the quality improving with the newer ones as opposed to the ones received on day 1? 2. Is it a certain production run that can be traced to serial #s or particular models that is worse than others? 3. does anyone think this is an actual manufacturing thing that apple will try to correct in an updated version (like they did last year with the antenna?) I know this is all probably speculation but I'm curious if there is some common thread with the quality (or lack thereof) with the manufacturing of them.
