In business you have to balance quality and price (production scale, R&D etc) and if you outsourced all your operations and have an on-going patient war with Samsung Electronics then I must say:you are officially screwed dude!

yet another over the top reaction from an iphone user.I work in a phone shop and can agree with adrians comment.We receive a lot of iPhones back with the bottom button fault and signal fault but I wouldn't expect an apple user to see this.I'm not biased and use any type of operating system .Just wish apple users would get off there hi horse and realise there phone are cheap made in China just like other manufacturers end off.

personally i thinking its a marketing ploy. build up anticipation on a product so everyone rushes to get it. when it gets released. great sales idea if you ask me.

Looks like a lot of Apple haters here. I've used all the iPhones so far, and not had a single problem. If they got new suppliers and some of the screens provided are bugged then is it apples fault? No, they didn't ask for bugged screens haha. Dear oh dear, either way, I'm glad they put the research into this one before release, unlike the iP4, but I never had signal issues anyway.

So...apple had 1 year to come up with a new Touch based mobile.......but the touchscreen is broken + let's not forget common issues with the home button...

A touch smartphone with a bugged touch screen = trash

Fail much apple?
