Just want to get an account of damage that were found out of the box. When voting, please consider replying with the week that your phone was manufactured, as well as the location using the link below:

Also considering including images if you have them.

For me, I had one perfect out of the box and one with slight cosmetic damage. Aside from the slight damage, I am happy with my purchase.

Columbus, OH
Black 32GB AT&T.

Very minor cosmetic blemishes. A small amount of minor discoloration at the edge of one of the antenna bands, and one extremely small nick in the rear beveled edge (you really have to look for it to see it).

Not a big deal to me, frankly. Phone works great.

There's already a poll on this subject. This poll was also featured on the main page this morning in an article.

You know, you're the first person to start a thread/poll about this. Why didn't anyone else think of doing such a thing?

I've seen them for scuffing, but haven't for overall damage reporting (including physical damage, defects, missing parts, etc). If someone else has created a thread with a poll to this extent, by all means, close this thread and link me to it. But I would like to know the specific data included the poll.

Phone was perfect. But lightning cable came dead and would not charge the phone so I had to exchange it at the Apple store.
