sorry to say but this phone simply lost..not only is it cheap and boring as hell, but half of its "innovating" features are sh*tty and dont work


not to mention the workers at foxconn probably had volume and home buttons marinating in their a.ss cracks before putting them on the devices

the only thin hard to believe is that these people took these phones out with scratches already on them, I'd bet next weeks check that they just dinged it up on accident quick and are looking for their 15, any metal or paint with scratch and chip with use or dropping etc, find it real hard to believe these people's phone were shipped this way, oh well, doesn't affect me
so all those people on macrumors.com, most being long time apple supporters, are just lying hoping to get attention? highly doubt that

Soooo using the car analogy n*ggas using...

If apple made a car, id spend 40k, and they bring it to my crib with chips all over. And then when i ask why its fuked up, they say "its normal..."

Like i said couple posts back. They know the right thing to do is a recall, but that would be a disaster... Why?

1. They dont even have enough phones to compensate to do a fix and exchange recall in a timely fashion. The way the device is made, its not like you can just swap thee unibody easily.

2. Their stock would plummet, brand new devices already wearing away INSIDE THE BOX. Stock would drop 50% the same week. After the small amount of bad press, its already down 10% this week.

3. No one would trust their products... If they openly admitted they failed to provide quality. Because we dont have a lemon buy back law for cell phones. As long as the phone work, you can get a phone with a gash out the box, and they can say "The phone works... No return..."


4. Apple knows they dont HAVE to do a recall. WHY? Because the common theme among owners is "I dont care about the scratches out of the box, i dont care if its dented, i dont care i have a case..." They simply do not care, to them the device is impecable. If apple had TOO MANY returns they would be forced to do a recall, but obviously dudes are probably doing exchanges.

5. At the moment apple has a serious shortage on their hands. Aight, this is good and bad. Good: It creates a false sense of the phone being in higher demand than it really is. This creates a sense of competition, people always want to be special. And the iPhone for some n*ggas makes them feel special. The bad: Their production is all fuked up, so they cant even do a recall, or exchange devices at the current rate. So many buyers states on the forums, "It took 3-5 boxes before i got a decent phone..." Rattling, chips, screen defects. Bad stuff.

Overall i think apple might be done for a while... iOS6 was the final nail being lined up for people like me on the fence about the OS. Not sure whats going to be the hammer though... My guess this summer apple will try to push for a 5s or iphone 6. So they can push their stock back up, and try to recoup from the high exchange rates, which will probably get HIGHER because remember the warranty. We dont have any long term testing yet. Who knows.

for those saying its not worth it.....im all good with my 4 or 4s....etc.

go pick up a 5 and use it and tell me it doesnt blow away any other iphone. dont believe everything you read and expect that its the truth.


not a single dent, scratch, screen issue with mine, nothing!.

as far as speed it makes the 4/4s look like the 3g...screen is way clearer and jumps out at you. the camera is better 10 fold. music sounds better. lte speaks for itself and i dont even use my wifi its so fast.

let me ask you this....you see the phone when you get to the apple store/carrier and you see dents and scratches on it. Why do you take the phone instead of saying," no, i want one that looks brand new, there is a reason i put down a deposit on a preorder"?

I bought a black iPhone 5 on friday and have had none of these problems. Of course your going to get a few crappy phones out of millions. It just happens that people hold apple to a higher standard so they get even more pissed when it happens. Not an apple stan by the way. Just got burned with android twice so now trying the iphone and so far I like it.
People hold Apple to a higher standard because Apple holds itself to a higher standard. Apple is supposed to be the pinnacle of innovation and quality. That's why prices are higher, and people feel special because they have one. It's the main cause of Apple elitism (i'm not saying all Apple users are like this but you would be in serious denial if you believe it doesn't exist).

So now that Apple are having all these quality issues, people will start to wonder what they are spending the money for? Why are they waiting in line? Those few things that apple uses could cling to to a.ssert their superiority over Android users or even windows users in regard to pc's are starting to slip away and they don't like that.

Some people just buy things from apple to show they have money. Really that's all I bought some of my apple sh*t.

When I realized it was just a name, like with most other sh*t in this world, I said fu*k it.

People should stick with what they like though.

I have had an iPhone since the first generation, but damn they are making it hard to stay on board. This iPhone 4SS just isnt living up to the hype, and with all theses scratches, Im starting to lean towards another phone. I hate having to use a case, so thats just not an option. Damn I dont know what the fu*k im going to do. . . .
