theres bound to be a lemon/lemons in a batch. I guess people have a hard time understanding this problems with the iphone because they only release a phone once a year in which that time they could have at least inspected and quality controlled the product better before it was sold.

It took a year to accomplish such a "magical" device. Come to think of it. Faulty back plate, leaking light, wi fi problems, display problems, rattling sound inside and what more to come. Strange it took such a long time for them to make just one device and they have brought almost an identical copy of the previous model sacrificing so called "premium feeling" with a more problematic aluminium backplate which peels away. What were they doing all these times. All other manufacturers bringing out more than one devices a year and most of them are technologically advanced than this iPhone. In my eyes, Apple couldn't nailed it but failed miserably this time. Their only hope is their loyal and somewhat blind fans who will still buy their devices against their better judgement.

Wow that's crazy because I thought I was the only one who experienced this with my iPhone 5.
