    So next, next day i will be having my iphone 5
    and i'm really excited. I've read in some blogs and articles that
    some Iphone 5 comes with a damage, or whatsoever.
    so basically i'm asking your help on what to inspect in my iphone 5?
    This iphone 5 will be my last phone for now. So i want it to be perfect

    This are what i'm planning to expect right in the store:

    1. Of course i would check for scratches
    2. I will trt the sound(is there a default sound in which i can play to check the volum or sound of the iphone?)
    3. check if the earpods are working
    4. check the camera.
    5. shake the phone if there are sounds
    6. check the home button that mig be loose.

    that's all i can think, if you guys have any advice
    on what to inspect please post it.

    The button at the top as well as the home button.

    Think about bring your own headphones to test that the audio jack is working. I wouldn't want to use earbuds that belonged to someone I didn't know.

    Assuming you are somewhere you can do this, check to make sure it can connect to a wifi network.

    Check that the camera works with and without a flash.

    Are you buying it new from Apple or an Apple authorized reseller? If so don't worry about it. You can exchange it.

    You can use the earpods. I'm just referring to the "yuck factor" of using them after being in a stranger's ears.

    A dead pixel shows up as a black spot most noticeable on a light background.
