I seriously doubt there's a major problem here.

The problem is: where is the "just works" feature that Apple always brags?

It's not a bug but rather an implementation of a new innovative function (not patented yet) to protect users from wasting their time on playing games ;P

Or maybe a Über Hard Mode for more advanced users :)

They aren't saying it is a definite problem; they're saying it could be a problem. It depends on the user. If it is someone who swipes on the screen constantly, like for a game or other touch-based app, then it may be a big problem. They even mention that not everyone will suffer from this glitch.

Of course, knowing you, you see any article that talks about a negative aspect of the iPhone as a threat to Apple's good name...as if they actually had one.

Yea, no problems unless you play games. Now I wait for you to say its not for gaming anyway....cmon, you know you wanna say it.....

But, if it is software related, no problems. Just wait for an update. MeoCao hit the elephant on the head tho.....the "just works" mantra shoulda died looong ago.

There is a bunch of different screen problems like a flickering, bad screen sensitivity, even yellow marks on the screen or flashing.
There is bunch of complaints about antenna problems.
There is complaints about Ambient Light Sensor problems.
There is complaints about various sound problems.
There is complaints about purple tints in pictures (a.k.a. "Purpel Halo").
There is complaints about iPhone 5 scratches out of the box.
There is complaints about WiFi problems.
There is complaints about keyboard problems.
There is even a problem called "Light Leak".

And now this glitch...

And it is high Apple standards ???

If you threw the phone in the garbage it would work better.

The only users that would rub their phone in such a way, are the people who play games like The Master of Baiters...

If you really research it the iPhone 5 is basically made of cheap parts period.The 4s IS BETTER than the 5. On that note,Judge Lucy Koh has decided to hear Samsung's side after questioning the integrity(because he has none)of the jury foreman for witheld info on how he use to work for Seagate,a partner with Samsung . Hey did you get the Note II yet bruh?

the problem is Apple is so full of themselves they think they can sell 4 generations of iphones with a 3.5 inch screen.... while everyone else is going to 4.7 (which is 80% bigger area btw)..

then all of a sudden, they say "holy crap, the other guys screens are 80% bigger, lets rush something out"..

now they got a all glass phone, that needs a 70 gram cover / bumper so you dont break it the first time you drop it, where the screen doesnt work right and its still 25% smaller than WP8 or Android.....

apple only gives you what they think is good for you.... good luck.
