Some new Apple iPhone 5 units are coming out of the box with scuff marks and dings
Tweets from Apple iPhone 5 buyers
This is a scenario that apparently is taking place throughout the world. Forums and message boards are full of Apple iPhone 5 buyers complaining about finding nicks and small scratches mostly on the side of the unit, although some have had them near the screen on the device. Some have taken to social networking sites like Twitter to spread the sad news.
Back in 2010 when the Apple iPhone 4 launched, buyers quickly complained of screens that had a yellow tint to them. The yellow dots evaporated after a few days, exactly like Apple said they would. And of course, there was the Antennagate problem where buyers of the phone were losing signal stength when holding the phone in a certain manner called the left-handed deathgrip. Apple eventually send buyers a free rubber bumper to prevent user's hands from interfering with the antenna.
