Does the iPhone 5 suffer from light leakage?

0. phoneArena 24 Sep 2012, 09:39 posted on

Oh dear, after the reports of some iPhone 5 devices arriving with scratches on the metal framing and back out of the box (bonus feature?), it looks like some owners of the white version are now experiencing a little bit of light leakage from the top end of their brand new smartphones...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

OK.. All the Apple Fanboys says that the S3 S2 & Note are made of cheap plastic.

I'd rather my cheap plastic that this out of the box scratches...LOL

Sure, they'll be fixing this, which will be great for people thinking about buying one, but what would this 'fix' do for people who already have scratched or light-leaky phones?

"...but what would this 'fix' do for people who already have scratched or light-leaky phones?"

And latest news says that Apple sells 5 million iPhone 5 units during opening weekend.

" Apple has said it they will be fixing this."

Curious since the article said no word from apple on the matter. Did you read that somewhere else, and if so could you provide a link?

"Apple has told us..."
"Apple will change the world..."
"Next iPhone will exterminate all other phones..."
"Mac is the best computer in the world"..

Sounds familiar? Yes.. the typical I-sheep

An yet I've seen 1 out in the wild, I wonder if they really sold as well as apple is saying.

Most iFans I know didnt see the point of going from the 4s to the 5 in the first place, now the scratches and light leaking. I dunno man, sounds kinda bogus to me.

I just checked our Demo model and it leaks in the same spot. This thing is becoming more and more of a joke. I'll keep my S3..

Are you talking about the Muslim comment? Not to be a wise ass, but Muslim isn't a race, it's a religion. That doesn't make the comments any less reprehensible or stupid....

Or, rather, Islam is a religion. Muslim is a practitioner. I'm a dope...

I disagree, that would be the 4 model. When you buy a cell phone and it can't make calls, it's the worse model ever.
