Leaked document reveals issues with the Apple iPhone 5s that Apple will fix for free

0. phoneArena 20 Sep 2013, 11:51 posted on

According to a published report on Friday, Apple expects that there will be some issues with the full-featured Apple iPhone 5s that the manufacturer will repair for free; the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c both launched earlier today. Apple did not offer a pre-order period for the iPhone 5s and that, combined with low inventories of the model, has led to the phone being sold out at a few Apple Stores...

They do cover the first one under warranty. PA did an article on it. Also, what build quality issues are you referring too? Sure, all OEM's, EVEN CLEARLY APPLE, have some issues. But of the OEMS I have bought from, so far Samsung is the best. I had far more issues with HTC than I have had with my Nexus or S4.

The Note 2 will run better on 4.3 when it comes out. But key word "work better".

Not like the iPhone 4 and 4s that had a decrease in performance with IO7 that is a really basic upgrade that has been on Android single core phones with 500mb of RAM or less since what, like 2009-2010???

My friends galaxy xcover is working perfectly fine, even after being dunked in water like a thousand times. This, for a mid-ranger. I highly doubt if a phone with flagship specs will have such problems, and even if it has-trust samsung to repair it for free.

Internal corrosion is an interesting one. Most phones have sensors that get triggered if dropped in water, how else could corrosion occur on the inside of a phone that a user could be at fault for? Sounds more like a manufacturing defect, which you'd think would be covered.

And that's a manufacturing problem, yes?

Such thing can happen from user side also, but that should be rare case.

Some premium android phones, RAZRs Xperias are nano coated or waterproofed I'm surprised Apple didn't, and I'm getting a 5s in November! I might also be getting an Ultra by Moto or a nexus 5, leaning toward the ultra

Get the MAXX. The extra battery life outweights everything.

The Ultras are great!!! But for if you don't mind the extra $100 for 32GB of strorage and a 2 day battery life get the MAXX. The touchless control and Motorola Assist absolutely rocks!!!

Lol. Oh well, theres always at least one some where. On the bright side, I'm enjoying my new 5s (and assuming you are too?!). Can't wait for PA to release the benchmarks and comparisons. "iPhone 5s slaughters quad-core rivals in performance tests despite dual-core CPU and just 1GB of RAM".

Anandtech already did them and A7 did slaughter them. That should shut the specwhores for a while.

Once upon a time iPhones had 2/3x cpu/gpu advantage on any competitor. 5s has a small advantage over the snapdragon 800...so didn't slaught anyone, just took the lead. However I can bet that if the S800 was running a lightweight os in C rather than in Java (Dalvik VM bla bla) would be much faster than the A7: as said before - now it's already close.

Hahaha incoming hypocritical herd of deeply reused phrases/excuses for iPhone 5S performance.

"Ip5s might be the fastest available right now.."
"I can bet that if the S800 was running a lightweight os.."

The fact of the matter is that, it is what it is, and giving excuses doesn't cut it. People like comparing phones when the odds are in their favor :)

"Hahaha" the world is mine you meant? Like the movie evils?

These are facts, not excuses. Remember the iphone 4s?

That was an onslaught. Not this one. Snapdragon 800 is the monster. Next.

I also printed my blueprint on my printer. My printer takes all the credit of course. It doesn't matter that i designed it and did all the drawings.

No, but the company that has the knowledge to actually build what's on your drawings from your printer is doing it right. Awesome analogy. Though I'm sure apple uses a Samsung printer to print their drawings, they apparently turn to a certain company when they want good hardware such as processors, screens (with sharp and lg), flash memory. Apple didn't build that...they dreamed it. Refer to Mark Zuckerberg for a better analogy. Samsung's making it, Apple's taking it.

So which smartphone company doesn't borrow components from another company? Why aren't these other companies as successful?
