Hold on, hold your head still and think... 1st, it's the easily scratched back. 2nd, it's the map issue. 3rd, it's the light leakage. 4th, it's the static lines... I'm wondering what the 5th would be...since it's the iPhone 5, 5th problem would be the convenient end. I'm thinking something like, the screen size is shrinking for the 5th. :D Any good guesses?

I love how all the iFan trolls are non-existent in the comments now. Just now realizing the fruit you love so much is giant parasite sucking on the lifeblood of the consumer eh?

Hey, girlie hands Geller said this is the greatest phone ever, in the universe and all parallel universes, and will only be supplanted by the iPhone 5s (which he's just finishing his review of).

Apple ran out of Unicorns to slaughter and had to settle with Donkeys.

They already own your downloads from itunes. Ask John McClane what he thinks of Big Fruity. Yippie Ki YaY MudderFockers

Scatch like that is not a biggy to me but if we are not complaint the quality start to drip....... and i can see people pay 650 for the phone and get someting like that. However, Apple has very very good reputation for being customer satifaction, she will replace the phone overnight.

With a refurb of a previously damaged iphoney 5.. Big Fruity NEVER EVER gives a "new" phone once one is damaged under warranty. Makes one question HOW in the F do they already have iphoney 5 refurbs and it was launched just within the last week? Big Fruity has a problem @ FoxConn and better look into it!

One word Big Fruity: SWYPE!! Big Fruity under Capt. Cook will sink faster than an old man doing a Polar Bear swim in Buffalo in January.

I find it kind of sad that its its A LOT of customers with products (Smartphones) from MANY manufacturers with ONE operating system (Android) bashing and bullying a product with ONE manufacturer (Smartphone) and ONE operating system (IOS). It seems like Apple is just being defensive nowadays with a bunch of bullies constantly insulting. Give it a break.

Why? Because they are greedy ass money-grubbers that don't want to share iOS with anyone but themselves? Oh boo hoo Apple is being "bullied". You think anyone important from Apple actually reads these comments? How 'bout NO

actually the do read comments. The have a whole web intel division that do nothing other than search the sites and blogs ALL DAY LONG!!! Big Fruity is sensitive dont ya know! They are like school girls whispering in the doorways before class.

I find it kind of sad that ONE smartphone manufacturer (Apple) with only a few devices on ONE operating system (iOS) is bullying the rest of the industry with nebulous, silly and often stolen patents in order to eliminate competition and stifle innovation. Maybe it's just me, but that seems a little more worthy of my ire then a bunch of faceless people on a small forum griping about it.

What a piece of crap. You isheep deserve every ounce of quality POS phone you got!!! To add insult to injury you isheep are buying the excuses apple is spooning out to you. "light leakage due to glue not cured" see article response from apple on CNET. The chips and scratches are part of the manufacturing process?I love this comment from apple - "Aluminum is a soft metal and will scratch easily" WTF? I wish I had these quality standards at my job... Why use it period. I can't wait to see what will be unveiled next week. The other bummer is anyone who is grandfathered in as unlimited data with Big Red will now lose unlimited data unless you buy the phone outright... You suck BIG RED. You double suck APPLE!!!

Coming from a guy on a motorcycle. Can you even afford a cell phone?

Posts: 17311; Member since: Jun 17, 2009

Yes, because motorcycles are really cheap. Fantastic logic.
