On Friday we already carried a report that highlighted some Apple forum posts that the black iPhone 5 is scratching easy on the back. Also some reported that their iPhone 5 had scratches out of the box. Today, Forbes posted a report that makes the issue appear much more widespread. Now tons of users have had their brand new iPhone 5 for a weekend. Users say that their iPhone 5 is already scratched way too much after just one weekend of use.
The scratch problem is also reported for the white iPhone 5. The question is how Apple could have missed that. It could be they already know and adjusted the surface finishing process for later production runs.
Also the problem of scratched iPhone 5 devices out of the box is more wide spread. Looks like Apple will have to exchange quite some iPhone 5s on Monday. I hope they replenished their stock.
