    What's wrong with me? Nothing at all. Cuz it's the truth. Apple is great but what's wrong here is they ship out a billion half *** paint job iPhones with scuffs on them before you even open the box. They knew this was going to be a problem before they shipped out the phones. They had to test the phones right? That's not really the point that bothers me. What bothers me is their response to the issue like its the user at fault for the scratches when they barely took it out the box. PipeBomb.

    Like TechnoUniversity mentioned, NO BRAND NEW $600 phone should come out the box scratched. NO EXCUSE

    Like many others, I'm skipping this upgrade, and will stick to the ip4 until the 5s or 6. I'm sure it will blow the 5 out the water

    I agree that in an ideal situation the product would be flawless out of box. This is why companies like apple allow you to enjoy your product in store before you go so that you know if its right or not. If something is wrong you simply say so and move on, its also why it comes with a warranty.

I wonder why fandroids have so much anger towards a product that they feel is inferior to theirs.
    I don't. I let apples commercials do the work for me.

    My iPhone 5 was delivered by FedEx and it had a tiny yet noticeable chip on the shinny black trim and a dent. I took it back and got a new one took three phones (two replacements were brought out and we found scuffs on them) After a long day I finally got a mint phone the way it should have been from day one (9/21/12). These products do not sell for a couple of dollars therefore I want my phone brand new and sexy.

    Phil said: "Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural color. That is normal."

    If Apple knew that was "NORMAL", why they sold to us one product with aluminum knowing that its going to happen. That comment right there is a good comment coming from Apple to present in case that somebody want to sue apple behind this sh...t

    Geez!
    It becomes a difficult issue when you go back and forth to the Apple Store and they have no i5s for replacement.

    I don't get this - Normal wear and tear - yes ok fair wear and tear after what, 6 months, or say 9 months, but what 3 days and its called normal wear and tear - that can't be good .

    I've been through the 2, the 3 the 3s and the 4 - skipped the 4s as did nothing - not sure I'll go to the 5 - poor wifi, scratches easily, silly connector

    I've talked to Apple about this and they're aware of the issue. They're getting flooded with calls and shipping out replacements.
