Box-fresh new iPhones coming out scratched, crushing dreams9/24/2012
Maybe you waited in line for hours. Perhaps you even camped out overnight (really? c’mon). Or, preferring comfort, you eagerly ordered online. Whatever way you acquired a new iPhone 5 we’re guessing you’d be mighty pissed if you opened the box and found a new smartphone marred with scratches. According to Forbes there are a number of people experiencing this crushing moment. Some phones are being reported scratched even underneath their protective film, while others are getting scratched up alarmingly easily within days of use. For the price of these apples you’d expect a more durable product; not bruised fruit. [Source]
