Doubtful, you'd have to really drop the phone hard to get a scratch or dent like that.

Face it, Apple products aren't perfect.

Out of lots of phones shipped, this always happens to a few. It always happens.

Yep. -_-
I mean, Apple products are pretty good, but I don't see why they get all the publicity. The only reason I would ever buy one is because of the integration with Macs (if I liked Macs) or for the large music store (which Amazon and Google already have for Android).
I guess it's just because of the exclusivity.

how is this funny? i understand this made news because its "apple" but this is too common to be a big deal... not even close to 1% of people having this problem...

but of course the immaturity of the people on this site that are against apple will take this and run with it... but believe that they aren't trolling...smh

just double check your phone before you leave the store or when you first receive your package... take it to a store for an exchange... simple as that... same goes for android/wp/blackberry phones...

Its funny because people paid like $800+ on a phone that was broken out of the box. If you bought a computer, and the screen was cracked, how would you react?

But of course you wouldn't see that.

The crazy thing is this could be something that was made up by a android fan and they did that themselves

Nothing's perfect. You guys jump to the opportunity to bash iPhones. You guys are going crazy over a tiny cosmetic scratch which may happen anyway.

You guys are the type to take a phone back to the store and b**ch about it to customer service

ohh im sorry but if i spent the that kind of money on a so called 'premium' phone and open it up to find it scratched then too right im going to complain

ohh and i love how you change your tune when its apple on the other end, if this was an android phone you would be first in with your stupid comments like ''see android are cheap'' etc

your the type of person that will accept whatever apple do and say. if apple said you have to put your phone in a bowl of water i bet you (you personally) would do it apple fanboy

the difference between Samsung and Apple is. that.. those scuffs are from shipping.. Samsungs cracks are after usage (little usage).. which is not the same..

haha so because you cant prove it, your only come back is ''can't prove me wrong either''

if everyone did what you do the ''facts'' would dissapear. it just be immature trolls saying stuff like ''prove it'' and ''i know you are but what am i''

i'll repeat the comment before prove it, prove your pathetic comment

Lmao can't prove you wrong? Look at the photos. The proof is right there man. Did any of these people who reported this mention the shipping package was damaged at all? So the phone gets dents and scratches but the packages are all unharmed. Yes that sounds logical. Then again you sheep freaks throw logic right out the door anyway lol

You can't admit that like the galaxy s3, there are some bad units of the iPhone 5.
