    Got mine on launch day and had to get it swapped a few months in due to a faulty power button. Apple swapped it without hesitation and new one has been perfect since.

    I had to swap mine out after it overheated so bad that I couldn't even touch it. I had wear a pair of winter gloves that I still had in my car to take it from my desk to the apple store across the street. Even the person that helped me out couldn't believe how hot it was. After 15 minutes, he said it was bad software which I didn't understand since I'd only had the phone a couple months and did the IOS updates OTA. He swapped it out with a new one with no problem. I never purchased a warranty or apple care when I bought it either. My son needs a new phone bad since he's using an android so I'm letting him use my upgrade at the end of June to get a 16GB iPhone and I'll continue on with mine. I don't see the need to get the newest one when it comes out.

    Pre-ordered my 5 and received it within 10 days of release. No major issues so far, no swaps. However, I think my iPhone 4 - which performed flawlessly the whole time I had it and has gone on to a new life with another owner - had far better speaker sound. My 5 sounds very "tinny" - harsh, almost. Otherwise, though, always ready to go when I need it.

    New to the 5, but I haven't had an issue yet. Phone is smooth, no lag.

    My original lasted 7 months before I had little purple specks on my pictures. Camera housing failure so got a replacement.

    Not a bad thing as a lot of the black had worn off it.

    Once, about 3 months in, the wifi and cellular started acting up. Also, it had a gap between the screen and the bezel.

    I have a Verizon iPhone 5. I got it replaced just last week because the headphone jack didn't work. Sound would be great until I plugged in headphones, then there was either no sound or very quiet. I was very impressed with customer service at my local Apple Store! The nice lady helping me plugged in her headphones to test it, and after just a couple seconds she told me I was getting a new phone.

    I've not swapped mine yet- nearly had to because of the purple lines when taking photos in bad light but it's not done it since i took my case off. My brother swapped his about 3 times.

    Only because I washed my release day unit in the washer. There wasn't a box of rice big enough to save that one...

    Had my original until the end of April then the phone started dying when the battery was still at 15%+ though I still kept it because I didn't want a replacement. I finally had to get one because the speakers broke. The replacement they gave me said it was activated but would never work so I got another replacement a week later and this one has been perfect.

    I've never had to replace my 5. Still on the original and crossing my fingers because the 1 year warranty is almost up and I dropped the insurance a while back.

    Did apple give you a new device or a certified new device?
