apple, being the most valuable company they are now, should invest on their own manufacturing departmend, much like samsung. but look where the money goes, to lawsuits and patent trolling. poor apple
Apple is spending all of it money on sueing other companies instead of using that money to buy good copnents and cover for its iphone5 with cheap water paint.i wonder what type of useless excuse they will use this time that the scratchs are part of iphone design apple is taking steps backwards.go wp8 and android keep on going forward.
I bought 4 iphone 5s they all came with scuffs out of the box infront of the apple store employees eyes.
girlsphoneiphone, 23 Sep 2012i dont like this comment its a lie hahaWTF!
[deleted post]SGS3 almost 99.9% is made of plastic.
IPhone 5 is almost 99.9% free of plastic because it used mostly aluminum alloy and glass.
nuke, 23 Sep 2012What a dissappointing find. I really was looking forward to the black one, well this settles i... moreWhy not Apple manufacture their product in the USA instead of China to create more job opportunity to help their own nation's economic?
AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012Dont create more plastic for our beloved earth. Say NO to plastic, it is environmental hazard... moreYes. Save our next generations like Apple does with great eco-friendly products like the MacBook Pro with Retina display /S
AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012Dont create more plastic for our beloved earth. Say NO to plastic, it is environmental hazard... moreSo is metal. So is your car, gas, garbage, clothes, and so forth. And actually Samsung is recognized as being way more eco friendly as well as Google.
iSJ5, 23 Sep 2012i like this comment! Thats true!i dont like this comment its a lie haha
AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012Again, contract manufacturer FoxxCon is fully responsible for this defect!
This has nothing... more"Contract manufacturer FoxxCon is responsible for the defect" ... so Apple will file a lawsuit ans sue FoxxCon, and FoxxCon may go bankrupt or stop manufacture for Apple, and Apple will have no product to sell and go out of business too? ... DON'T BLAME THE CONTRACT MANUFACTURER - BLAME APPLE OWN R&D FOR NOT DOING ENOUGH HOMEWORK, AND ALSO APPLE'S QC !!
[deleted post]Dont create more plastic for our beloved earth.
Say NO to plastic, it is environmental hazardous.
Save our next generations so does Apple.
for all those fanboys defending Apple by putting blame over Foxconn
i've two words for you "quality testing"
when a company that uses third party manufacturing site, it always does quality assurance for the products that are coming out
but I guess Apple didn't look on this matter
I still remember Samsung delayed the blue version of s3 because it had very minor finishing issue
but they were too busy suing others
do some quality check you self obsessed money vampires (aka Apple inc)
blowntoaster, 23 Sep 2012hahahaha...look at all these fanboys try and defend Apple. It's still an Apple product; and wh... moreThis. Especially when you launch only one model per year, and redesign it every 2 years. There's no excuse to release a 'beta build' of of the phone now.
hahahaha...look at all these fanboys try and defend Apple. It's still an Apple product; and whether Foxconn, or whoever does the manufacturing, Apple still has to do product testing to ensure quality and reliability of it's products. They don't just slap the components together and "Wa-la", there you go. Samsung had a back cover issue with the Pebble blue S3's and they fixed it, and quick. Let's see if Apple does the same...or not...pathetic man. you pay an arm and a leg for something that chips and blisters within days...hahahahahaha
this is what happens when a phones demand is crazy n not enf stock is made sending out c grade units (samsung had that hyper glazing problem they should have asked nintend how did thy do it with the dslight
N this is what happens if u make somthing to thin and light it dents easly n looks terbel
i still like the iphone 5 (As long as i dont use it)
mihai, 23 Sep 2012so what? it's not an excuse and apple is responsable for the entire packageYou must not confuse public by associating this chipping/dent issue with Apple.
Apple has no control over FoxxCon's management. Apple cant fire FoxxCon's worker who responsibles for this incident.
The only way Apple can do is to replace FoxxCon with a more reliable contract manufacturer.
