This is just one of calculated risks (like the Map issue) that Apple took in order to bump up the 3rd Quarter Earnings numbers by releasing the iPhone before it was fully baked. They needed to do that to keep the investors from fleeing due to lower than expected numbers resulting from the fierce competition.
Anyway, nothing matters to iFans because almost all of them buy because it's Apple. Poor quality? Copying? Nah... They don't care... Nothing else matters, except the logo. Everything else is forgiven...
anodizing is not a topical finish but rather a chemical bath that "seals" off the surface of the aluminum to prevent it from oxidizing. This is why anodized aluminum has a much more metallic look than painted aluminum, which is a topical finish. Also, aluminum can be super hard if heat treated (htc phones like the sensation have super hard aluminum back cover) so get your facts straight gsmarena!
oh my goodness. late 2008 or 2009 when i bought nokia 2600-c. removed it from the box and found out dents at the corner. so i think nokia must sue apple for this infringement.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2012Just don't drop it. Sorted. There are flaws with every phone, it's because it's an iPhone and ... moreyep every phone has flaws. i wouldnt mind chips and scratches if its a 100$ phone. but an expensive phone like an iphone, a luxury phone if you may, it is just unacceptable.
of course your a typical iphone fanboy who will buy anything that apple throws at you, regardless of not-so-premium finish, downgraded maps application and very limiting os, so yeah, you wont get what im saying.
you'll never realize that iphone 5 is just selling because of apple's past reputation.
it's simple really...they are holding it the wrong way...with Apple it is always the consumer's fault, never Apple's...
Just don't drop it. Sorted. There are flaws with every phone, it's because it's an iPhone and all the folk who pick holes in it are just in denial that they secretly want one. Just stop moaning and buy one, you will be instantly converted and your days of blogging negatives about it will subside. You know it makes sense
OMG what the hell has happened to Apple qaulity?
iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S scratch/scruff test
Now I have to be really careful not to dent my Motorola phone in case Apple sue me for breaking one of their patients.
iphone has chipping issues(though its a phone only not any out of world thing) and even s3 has so so built quality. but still now never seen such problems in nokia. my nokia xpress music fell from 4th floor though on grass but still it is running well. but still i'm an androider(sam,htc,lg...used many). love apple too for its ipod only.

The home button and leaking light screen is a very small complaint rare and replaceable, and the bad screens complaints, are actually software glitches at the password screen.

As for taking up real estate... most of the comments are basically #### iPhone and #### Android.. I dont think we did much harm on here..
