    Default Did you iPhone 7 or 7 Plus come with any damage or other issues?

    Mine phones was perfect. But if your remember iPhone 5, the slate color at launch many had scratches or scuffs. On iPhone 6 launch, both mine and wife's screen came scratched on launch. Any scratches on screen, phone, dead pixels, or may others issues?

    The only iPhone I have ever had an issue with out of the box was my iPhone 4; the camera lens came cracked.

    I was able to get her a new one in Apple Store through a reservation. The new one has no issues. Returned the original.

    my silver iPhone 7 came with a small (hard to notice) dark spot/imperfection on the back. Almost looks like its just a dirt/finger print on it but doesn't come off. Other than that no issues. Not bad enough to warrant a return...especially since I plan on buying an Apple leather case when I go to Apple store later next week

    I bought my first 7 online day 1 and it had a light yellowish tint on the bottom of the display (was about the height of the dock). I could see it right away but my co-workers could only see it when I pointed it out to them. Kept it for 3 days but it drove me crazy so sent it back.

    Picked another 7 up today from the Apple Store and this one is much better.

    The one thing that was shocking was my blue leather case. The back had three or four large marks on the back. It looks like someone has used it before me although that was also purchased day 1! Kept that as its a case and I'm not bothered how that looks, as long as it keeps my phone blemish free!

    Picked up Day One 4pm at Apple In Store Pick Up and my Matte Black 7 was flawless out of the box.

    There was one person there with a Jet Black 7 Plus they received by UPS or FedEx earlier in the day that was upset it was delivered with a large scratch but there was nothing the store could do except assist in a swap with 2-3 week wait.

    I ordered the Jet Black and Matte Black 7Plus, because I wasn't sure which one I wanted and was going to return one depending on which one I liked better. I opted for the Matte Black, just because I liked the way it looked more, but I did notice something on the Jet Black. There was a discoloration when I opened it on the back of the phone about the size of a pencil eraser. I tried wiping it off, but it was something that was baked in. It looked almost like a paint smudge. When I returned it to the Apple store they agreed it was a manufacturing defect and the said they would have done an exchange for it had I not been returning it.

    My black iPhone came in without screen tint issues, no hiss, no dents, or scratches. Ive never had any issues in that department with any of my iPhones.

    Flawless. Although I don't inspect my devices. If I don't notice anything by glancing at the front and back and through normal use then I don't think anything more of it.

    Long story short (unless you read Craig's iPhone Journey in this forum) is my phone never worked correctly. Apple had to overnight me a new phone. They wanted it back for testing. Failed diagnostics.

    My iPhone 7 Plus has a hissing sound. It's very audible.

    I have been buying direct from Apple since the online store opened and have never had one issue with anything I have ordered from them, always top notch service and delivery.

    My plus that I returned had the yellow tint on screen. First regular 7 had it now this replacement has it. Supposedly it's the clue under screen that hasn't dried completely yet. Monday will be a week. If it isn't gone I will swap again.

    The yellow tint may be in Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > Color filters

    Yes I can adjust. But that's just a temporary fix. I've compared them to many demo models and they are super bright. My 6s was brighter as well.
