thats why i buy only after a few months later from release date to know if i can live with the issues
Note: Apple use their 1 Billion dollar coins from Samsung in making the body of the innovative Iphone 5
Have just been over to the forum on macrumours.com, looks like almost 50% of all subscribers (over 1000 already) have experienced chipping and scuffs. Here is solid proof this is not a minor or isolated incident.
Not having any allegiance to a phone brand (currently have htc, wife has gs3, previously had/used iphone 3,4,4s) i would say regardless of the brand or the price a brand new phone should be just that... BRAND NEW, if you bought a new car with chips on it, does the manufacturer try to convince you that you should put a case on it? or your looking at it on the wrong angles? c'mon man, no excuses there, QC should have ensured these phones never made it to retail sale.
I applaud apple for the entire iphone concept from 3 onward, its ease of use etc, but i'm a droid now, i like to tinker, i think ppl saying android is too hard to use are just too lazy or too ignorant.the choices from cheap $100 phones through to flagship models is great, there is a phone for everyone. People should buy a phone they like apple, android, wp8. Its not life's hardest decision! That said i dont appreciate the blatant marketing they have fed to consumers over the years. As a marketing graduate its an insult to a persons intelligence. If you stop and actually question their marketing ethos all actual benefits are so minute. No mention of real world features. Can anyone buying a new phone today apple or other say that their phone has greatly improved the overall quality of their lives? It would be sad if thats all you really had to live for?
Speaking of which i do feel sad for the poor souls camping out and lining up for a phone riddled with problems from day 1 yet being defended to the hilt by blindsided fans. amazing what can be looked over!
are you sure this is the iPhone5? looks more like an iPhone4/4s which someone just painted black the rim.
OMG!!... This must be apple new patents... Scuffs and dents out of the box.. Luckly other brand isn't following this cheap silly looking i.... Thingy....:-)

AnonD-58827, 23 Sep 2012Agreed .. though Apple launched capacitive touch and awesome display.. but Nokia took it to th... moreWhat? Apple launched capacitive touch scree? Are you drunk or gone mad?
Capacitive touch was invented in early 60's by Denish engineer. Multi-touch and its gestures was never invented by Apple. It was invented by Fingerworks Company which was acquired by Apple in 2005 and after 2 years they launched iphone stating we invented multi-touch. Steve Jobs was great artist in cut-paste. They had requested multi-touch as their trademark and which was rejected by United States Patent and Trademark Office. Apple has always wanted a monopoly and thats why I hate Apple. Apple iboys are the world's most stupid person who don't know the reality and speaks bla bla bla.
