I want Tim Cook's iPhone. I do not mean the unit he is actually using today. I am not referring to the size, capacity and color that Tim Cook chose either. I mean an iPhone having the same level of quality as the one Tim Cook is using. In anticipation of delivery of an pre-order for a Black 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, I have been reading several threads in order to have the best available criteria to evaluate the unit that Apple sent me. I am astounded with the widely varying experiences that users are reporting. Some report having bright and clear displays while others complain of displays that are not only yellowish but less bright and sharp than the displays of the iPhones they are replacing. Some complain of hissing, static, buzzing and/or crackling noises emanating from their new iPhones while others reported having virtually silent devices. Moreover, I was dismayed at how many users reported that they were sold defective or subpar units that often had both display and noise issues. I am certain that Tim Cook's iPhone 7 is noiseless and has the perfect display that Dr. Raymond M. Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies, wrote about. Did Tim Cook get a flawless iPhone by chance? Or did someone at Cupertino open at least two boxes before finding him a flawless iPhone? Perhaps Foxconn has a team that hand-picks flawless units for distribution to VIPs, key Apple executives, journalists and well-known reviewers. Mass production will always result in defective or subpar units getting past quality control onto the hands of consumers. But judging from what I have been reading in this forum it seems that what should be the exception is becoming a common occurrence. Chance and/or persistence should not be important factors in getting a good iPhone. Everyone who buys an iPhone should get a unit of the same level of quality as Tim Cook's without spending the considerable time and effort that is always involved in returning and replacing a smartphone. Should one not expect the best quality for $969?
