    Hi to everyone who has purchased and received their iPhone 5S..

    I just wanted to say thank you for beta testing for me and others to find all the bugs and hardware issues some of you are already experiencing such as the vibrating motor being too loud http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1641415 and home button with a louder clicking sound http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1641343

    I'mm sure there is more so please everyone who has the phone now post your issues.. and Apple may address it with their new batches of the iPhone 5S...
    thanks!

    These are not issues! The home button has a different sound than before, and vibration is also a bit different. My iPhone 5S is perfect.

    If those are the biggest issues, this phone can declare victory over the rest of the smart phones.

    Thanks OP, we now know we have the best phone!

    I think you just convinced yourself that there are problems out there, so that you won't feel bad for not having one...

    I'd actually like a louder vibration motor, as I sometimes miss calls on my 4S.

    One thing I wouldn't accept though is poor (cheap) anodization, so hopefully Apple have addressed that.

    I plan to get a ip5S 64gb. Just waiting to see if there is any problems with these phones and wait until all are resolved before purchasing. I just read someone had an issue with slow motion video not playing back in slow motion. :)

    If you all recall the previous iPhones had "issues" and we're "fixed" at a later time. e.g. Antenna, scuffs, home button not responding, etc etc.

    True, but if I recall apple replaced phones that had these issues, so what's the point in waiting?

    For the record, my phone has zero issues. Works flawlessly.

    Unless you consider the home button clicking differently an issue.

    Quoted for truth. Guarantee that if he had found one, he would gladly be "Beta Testing"

    OP, don't be mad. You too will get a 5S one day.

    Device has no issues and as other said even if one did arise they'd replace the device. So really, it's a non "issue."

    I'll enjoy my beta test this year just like I did for the last 7 iPhones on launch day.

    I have zero issues, considering they've already had a year to work out bugs with this hardware and design, and if I were to have a problem, the fact that I have the phone from day one outweighs the inconvenience of having to stop by an Apple store to get a replacement.

    I'm sure you agree.

    This. But seriously my 5S is absolutely perfect and I'm loving the Leather case.

    I enjoy "beta testing" launch day phones. I've had a launch day iPhone since the iPhone 4 and the only issue I've ever had was a faulty sleep/wake button on the iPhone 5 which was replaced under warranty.

    Considering all of the changes in the home button to accommodate the finger print sensor, how are you surprised that the click is different? A regular home button is obviously going to make a different sound clicking than a button that also has a completely new sensor. I think someone is looking for anything to be wrong with it. I got a Space grey 32 gb 5s on launch day and I am thrilled with it. I originally wanted the gold but I actually love the sleekness that the space grey has. I have absolutely no complaints with the 5s.

    Me too... These threads are there to sooth the OP so he just doesn't feel bad about not having one... if there is an issue with the phone, whatever it may be, Apple will replace it under warranty so your original post is moot.

    Typical iphone 5 owner who is in between getting a iphone5s, because its the new thing and feels he is missing out on the new trend ... Seems like some iPhone 5 owners are having trouble convincing themselves to wait till iphone 6 ...

    This coming from a perfect 4s experience who is waiting for his 5s experience , can't wait for LTE speeds

    Any perceived problems will be fixed next year with the iPhone 6. Feel free to buy something then. :)



    That's a software issue, fixable without having to wait to buy your phone.



    The iPhone 4 antenna designed was not "fixed" until the iPhone 4S.

    Solution: Hold it right.


    Not fixed, the 5 is still very scuffable, and with little exterior design change, apparently so is the 5S. It's an issue common to anodized aluminum finishes.

    Solution: use a case, or don't scuff your phone.

    Again, fixed only after new designs.

    By comparison, a clicky home button and "loud" virbrate motor are actually pleasant things to hear people complain about. It means there's a relative lack of real defects to complain about.

    So, you keep twiddling your thumbs and "gloating." We'll see you next year. :)

    Those "issues" sound like "opinions" after reading the thread. Does the vib. sound a little more loud? Yes. I'm not sure how that is a bug or hardware issue. How is it too loud?

    Does the home button have a click sound? Yes. Again, I don't understand how that can be considered a hardware problem. The thread was just asking if anyone else is hearing it. I don't think anyone that pays attention when they press the home button will not hear it. It's not a hardware defect; at least I don't understand how someone considers that it is. Can you elaborate on how it is?

    You read someone had an issue with slow motion video not playing in slow motion... hmmm... that sounds like user error to me. Have you read that someone, mysteriously had slow motion video playing back in slow motion? *Gasp!!!
