Foxconn admits the iPhone 5 is the most difficult device it has put together

Some users are already aware of that as they have found scratches and other imperfections on their otherwise brand new handsets. Due to the higher probability of build quality issues during the production process, Foxconn has had to implement a new quality control system to ensure that as many parts as possible will make it to the end of the process. Interestingly, the source mentions that it was this new quality check that has caused the strike we told you about last week.
Foxconn expects that the quality standard of the iPhone 5 is already improving, and will continue to improve with time.

Okay I'm sorry for sounding like a jerk, but was this article really necessary? I mean, there have been articles in the past that have stated the exact same thing, except this one was just fluffed. Example - hyperlink in the end of the article.

They aren't bias, they're smart. Look at the front page any random day of the week and the stories with the most comments (and probably the highest view count) are all about Apple. They keep writing stories about it because whether you like Apple or not...you click on their stories, which I'm sure makes PhoneArena money. Tired of Apple stories? Ignore them and comment more on Android or WP8 stories instead. You'll see them shift to those instead.

It lets people who bought them know that the damages that have been reported on the outside aren't the only problems that plague this model, lot of things on the inside to contemplate breaking as time goes on. If I had purchased one, I'd appreciate knowing there could be a future disaster in the making.

Apple needs less marketing / lawyers and more engineers to innovate and consider manufacturing issues. Reminds me of the Dilbert episode with the great engineering company with no marketing team and how quickly it fell apart once they created one.
