The scratch is one thing, but the bigger issue is the touch screen. Looks like Apple's QA missed this big time. I've seen some you tube vids on it and quite a bit of discussion about it already. The huge concern would be if it's a hardware issue or fixed by software.

At least with the scratches, Apple will replace it. You just have to wait a good month for a replacement.

I hope yours comes unscathed and you get to enjoy it. Best of luck. And don't rely on the maps either until Apple gets its act together and updates it too. Wink

According to an email sent out by Phil Schiller, the scratching is quite normal especially once it's being used. The scratches & scuffs will not be as visible on the white iPhone 5 (a reason to get the white iPhone 5). If your iPhone 5 had scratches before opening the box up, it's likely a QC issue that the factory experienced (most likely possible because of the huge demand for the iPhone 5).
