After one month of sacrifices, i've choose to return my iPhone 7 and go back with my old 6s.

Reasons?

First three iphone with a loud hissing noise, the other one with display issues, another one got wet without any reason (i think running under the rain).

Really really tired about this kinda of things, i started to HATE iPhone 7 and Apple with this kinda of low quality check, very very tired.

I don't know if i will return to iPhone 7, i was liking very much the camera of the iPhone 7+, but now i haven't got no more energies to go back, change, return, configure, change it again......

Should not be water resistant under ip67 conditions?!?!?!?
It's simple tell to the people IP67, IP67, but no warranty if water damaged..... apple lose this time.

I think he was saying that the rain got your phone wet. For you to say it got wet without any reason makes no sense.

I suggest remaining with iPhone 6s and walk around with umbrella. Always with umbrella.

Apple can fix 99% of everything except bad luck. That's the remainder 1%. Unfortunately you fall into category remainder 1%. iPhone 7 very bad luck for you even tho 7 is good luck in most cases, especially leprechauns.

Wait for iPhone 8 which may bring good luck and if still bad luck then iPhone 9, 9S, or iPhone 10

If iPhone 10 is still bad luck then I finally suggest a pencil and paper. That combination never fails (except in rain; paper does not enjoy rain, thats why I say always umbrella earlier)

Tried 5 phones, every of them was defective with different defects.... this is not bad luck, this is the worst quality check seen in my life.

will wait for the next year.

Sorry that happened.

I got mines the Sunday after the release...so about three days?

No problems so far...I've taken it to use in the shower, out in the pouring rain, and it's been fine.

If I had to change my phone as many times as you I'd be super frustrated and actually I probably would have given up after the second one.

Unlucky, there are perfect phones out there.

I think it's ridiculous how many problems devices have considering the premium we pay for them.
No there are not perfect phones. How can something be perfect if mass protruded by children? Especially in China?

Nothing perfect in this world. That comment only seems to confuse people into trying over and over for a "perfect" phone

You tried 5 phones with defects. Millions of iPhone 7 sold without defects. Maybe some with defect but not reported. So let's say 100s thousands without defects. This makes you lucky unlucky 1% unkucky

You know what real "worst quality check" is? Look at explosive Samsung Note 7

To be fair, the explosions were a secondary affect of the fires the phones caused.

I thought they caught fire and then caused other issues.

When people talk of this loud hissing noise do they mean they can hear it without putting the phone up against their ear? Like 10 feet away?

My JB 7 doesn't have a uniform screen (pinkish tinge upper left quad,yellowish flashlight hotspot line on bottom) and after 8 (cough yes 8) iPhone 6's with screen uniformity problems I'm convinced it's VERY hard (I've still never seen one) to find a perfectly uniform edge-lit LCD on and apple product these past 3 years. Just look in these forums starting with the iPhone 6 and first iPad Air is when the crap show started with this yellow tinged dark cornered color temp shifting displays continues to this day even with the iPad pro's.

Sorry I just simply don't believe you op.
I swear, Some people literally create reasons to find issues with these iPhones. Everyone I know who has the iPhone 7 Plus, has had no issues. I'm not saying it can't happen, but five iPhones? Really. I wouldn't be surprised if the OP's carrier didn't flag the account for this many exchanges.

And those same people just love to complain.
