Would you exchange for...

Few specs of dust under the screen and a loose vibrate switch? The loose vibrate switch causes the phone to rattle. IF you put your finger over it and apply light pressure it doesn't move. My 5S doesn't have this kind of play.

Then there is the dust under the screen. I am contemplating an exchange because it took forever for me to get this device.

This is a Space Gray iPhone 6 64GB.

Sorry, you opened yourself up to replies like that when you post about minor nitpicks about your phone. Yes you paid a lot for the phone and it should be in near perfect condition. But you're the only one that can answer if those minor issues will bug you or not. My 5 out of the box and a few nicks on the chamfer. I wasn't going to be all OCD about it and was fine with living with it.

Yeah if most things are working well I'm not sure I would.

Exchange game gives me a migraine. I try to dodge it like the plague when I can. Ruins the enjoyment too.

I'd just do what some are doing: use it as a free ticket to exchange towards the end of the warranty.

Digging my 128 space grey :D

Well, it is my device, and I am the one who has to live with it. The price tag on the phone was near $900. In my opinion, way too much for a device that is a minimal improvement over the 5S. I could just return it and use my 5S another year as it has 7.1.2 on it. 7.1.2 runs way smoother than 8.0.2 on the 6.

While it is your device and you paid for it. The question is, can you really live with the defects that you have? I paid mine for a full price and I expect my device to be defect free.

If you think the dust under the screen is bugging you then return and exchange it. If the vibrate/silent switch is loose or doesn't meet your expectation the return it and get it exchanged.

Don't live with those defects. I'm very nitpick about the screen quality and if I see an uneven tint or even a pissy yellow tint, it's an immediate trip to the apple store.

Take it back. I've taken them back for less and they have replaced it. I had my 5S replaced because the home button rattled.

Ok. Sure.

Now, what would Ditka do? He would get what the hell it is that he wants! Right? RIGHT?!?

Anyway, take it in to the store.

Here, allow me to help.

The new iOS works perfect on mine. I blame user error
