    Phones aren't perfect. Which is why I prefer iPhones over other phones.

    Those phones are junk. Even without screen issues it has zero appeal to me.

    3.5 million would also say the same

    this. Wow - people just reach for anything these days to hold onto to try and put down another device just to make themselves feel better about the one they own. Three words - GET OVER IT

    Well, at least they didn't wait 22 days to address it.

    How do we even know that we can trust that percentage? How do they know how many people actually have the problem? That number could be anything: percentage of people who called customer service, percentage of people that have returned their phone (for a replacement), etc.

    Yes, I understand we can’t truly know if the percentages are real, but how would Motorola even figure out that percentage? At least with Apple’s percentage you could just: (number of phone calls about antennae / total number of phone calls x 100%) = %.55

    Yeah, but I'm sure that's at least a 100% higher screen defect count than the previous Droid model. :D

    Because maybe they know how many production units were between X (bad) serial #s and Y good ones?

    Who knows. Point is - the comparison between iPhone and Droid here is silly. Why does anyone need to put another phone down to feel better about their own

    everyone tries to suppress their own buyer's remorse by putting competitive products down

    I’m just getting a little tired of all the Android talk around here, it is an iPhone forum on an Apple-central website after all! I’m also sick of the iPhone hate around.

    I remember what these forums were like back before Android was even released (pre-3G announcement). It was all iPhone talk, all positive talk. Nobody cared about other phones, because they genuinely loved their iPhone.

    Those were the days!

    random sampling of phones leaving their plants?
    if done with the right sample size and by following certain rules when choosing their sample, they can generate data such as that percentage in a reliable enough way that most statisticians would accept it as close to the true percentage. There is no way to find a true number for something like that short of collecting all the phones produced and testing them...not worth it
