    I've noticed typing to be noticeably more difficult than on my 4S (on iOS 5). The keyboard will often not pick up letters and then either doesn't autocorrect or corrects to something really weird.

    I've also noticed flickering horizontal lines along the top third of the keyboard a couple times. Goes away after a couple seconds though.

    Auto brightness doesn't seem to work properly either (same issue as others have said where in a dark room, the brightness does not decrease).

    I had it crash once on me out of nowhere, just swiping between screens and all of a sudden: Apple logo.

    Physically, I went to pick up the phone and the side of my nail kind of knocked the side and lo and behold, the black coating on the rim just fell right off in that spot. It seems like whatever that coating is, it does not have much resistance. I'm not one for cases or bumpers...I fear for the worst.

    I'll keep my eye out for more...

    Lightning cable is DOA. Applecare is sending one in 5-7 business days. time to really put the battery life test to use. Think it will last that long? maybe i can go down to my local store and buy a new one...wait...maybe I can go to my local apple store to get the issue resolved..2 hours drive...

    I have also noticed the screen to be less sensitive than my 4S. Something that surprises me because with the in-cell technology I was under the impression that was going to make it more sensitive, not less.

    That's how iOS works. I personally hate it but unless you jailbreak, there's nothing you can do. If you do jailbreak (hopefully we can soon), there's a utility called Insomnia (I think that's what it's called) that will allow you to have persistent wifi.

    So even with LTE and cellular data turned off my wifi will turn off if i'm not using it??

    Interesting question...but my guess would be yes. The theory is that turning off wifi while the screen is off saves battery...doesn't matter what your fallback connection (or lack thereof) is.

    2 minor issues here - I have the rattle too, but it's not a loose button. Not too worried as it doesn't seem to affect the phone.

    More importantly is an SMS issue where messages from my wife are displayed on my phone as if I typed them there. Both phones are registered to the same iTunes account as separate devices, and when I send her a message it's fine, but if she replies is appears on my phone as if I typed it. Pic attached.

    I am new to the iphone as well and my wifi seemed to keep shutting off like when I would leave the house and then come back and just while in the living room, but my "ask to join" wasn't turned to on. I turned it on and it reconnects automatically when I come back home and is working fine. My problem was just me not being familiar with an iphone. Maybe this can help you too.

    I am new to the iphone and my only small issue is that I have a small speck of dirt or lint or something that is under the screen. It is very small though and I can't hardly see it when the screen is on. The OCD in me wants to take it back and exchange it because it is only a day old and I know it's there, but in all reality it isn't even very bad and I may get a bigger problem with another phone.

    if that will annoy you take that bad boy back and have it exchanged its brand new and should not be flawed to a point where you will notice it all the time.

    Anyone having issues with their music/iPod on the iPhone 5? I've had music playing while showing the wrong album artwork and one of my songs won't play at all. When I try to play it skips to the next song. A couple of times the iPod screen has gone all black and stopped playing.

    could've tried network reset. i couldn't get 4g or lte at all, powered on/off and still no luck then i realized the feature of network reset in settings did the trick

    I noticed today in my photos app that any screen shots I had previously taken are now appearing a fraction larger than the screen display. ie., if it was a screen shot of text such as a Wikipedia entry, the text at the left and right edges would actually appear cutoff unless you double tap the pic for it to reformat to the screen. Not a huge deal. I'm anal so I will just recreate the screen shots. But, thought I would mention it.

    I've noticed the flickering horizontal lines too once, I was updating apps in the app store. Pretty sure keyboard wasn't up. Not sure what to make of this...

    I have noticed that it seems the touch screen/keyboard doesn't seem to be as sensitive. Maybe it's a software issue. iOS 6 Beta 4 was better on my 4S.

    When I first read your post, I thought you said "my wife is acting up!" :-) I'm not too sure there's an app for that!
