Despite the hullabaloo over the iPhone5, it seems there are enough issues to distance consumers away from the much-awaited gadget. Besides the glitches in the Apple Maps which have been criticised for showing wrong landmarks, users are now complaining that their phones came with scratches.
THE PEOPLE who could not make it to the Apple store on the first day are having the last laugh, as many customers complained of scratches on the new iPhone 5. According to the message boards that play hosts to Apple products, various customers complained that the iPhone 5 doesn'tt look brand new owing to the various chips and scraps around the antenna markers on the side of the device and near the screen.
This might prove bad for the product and may bring a dip in the craze and sales of the product that was breaking all records. However, the problem has been noticeable only on the black version of the iPhone 5. A customer who was obviously disappointed with this, wrote in the complaint message board, “Mine arrived today with small scratches on the right out of the box. Looks like they chipped the anodized coating putting the screen in, and there is a small mark on the lower back too, by the glass section,” reported Mail Online. Although he added that he is not going to lose sleep over the detail but then he would obviously keep in mind that the coating of the phone is soft and will chip over time.
The paper however did clarify that the damage was done by a customer who wanted to test the durability of the anodized aluminum case by rubbing keys and a sim card tray on the back of a display model at an Apple store. This does not make sense as how can one customer cause damage to more than one phone - surely not all were displayed and surely he could not lay his hands on all of them before packing!
The fact that Apple did away with Google maps is also not going well with the Apple users. There were complaints about the same as well. The iOS 6 has not lived up to the people's expectations as it is known susceptible to problems, glitches and hiccups with wrong landmarks.
