iPhone 5: Say hello to scuffgate? | Crave – CNET
If you bought Apple’s iPhone 5 today and noticed a ding on it, you’re not alone.
On message boards and social media, new iPhone 5 owners are complaining of small scratches and nicks on their new smartphones, purportedly located near the antenna markers on the side of the device or near the screen. The issues appear mostly limited to the black version of the iPhone 5. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
We spotted at least three dozen examples of consumers frustrated with small abrasions discovered after unboxing their shiny new iPhone.
