    I'm just wondering if others have found these weird scratches around the back? It's around all of the antenna lines (That's what they are right?).

    Also, do they all come in this type of box? I'm just...

    That is the box.

    I would try to clean them if they are just minor scuffs, or I would just take the phone back and have them replace it.

    I'm returning it. It's just crashing out on like 20% of my apps. There is a weird pattern of black lines that go across the screen when I'm scrolling.

    I think unlike the 5s that I just exchanged, I'm going to just return this one.

    @SeptembersRain, don't be so quick to give up on the 6 just yet .....maybe just exchange it for another go.

    I have not heard of people complaining of scratches out of the box like that. Those scratches posted in your pic are not indicative of the norm out of the box, but definitely worth taking back either way.

    The other issues with the screen artifacts sounds like a possible software issues but don't quote me on that. But again, not indicative of the majority of phones already purchased.

    Those remind me of when they were making the iPhone 5 and there was so much demand that the poor workers were being so overworked and quality declined. Either way, take it back because that isn't indicative of the norm and definitely neither is the artifacting and crashing.

    I'm going to return it today and I think I'll wait for the 6s. The 5s was a very stable device, I just didn't like the design or weight at the time.

    I'm still wishing they'd make a 6c this next year. I'm hopefull, not optimistic however.

    OMG how can it be so scratched up right out of the box??
    I would return it.. Mine had some weird black scuffs near the antenna area, but they replaced it.

    And i didnt cause those scuffs, cus i put it in my apple case right after unboxing it. So i dont know what they are doing in that factory where they make those 6s

    I would exchange it. I've handled enough of them that I can assure you what you got is an anomaly.

    I can't even use my 5S anymore. Its seems unreadable and slow to me now lol.

    Hmm. I felt perfectly happy going back to my 5c. I don't feel like it's slow or anything. I don't know.

    Think I'll just be trying to get an iPad instead. Just want a bigger screen to read my manga. ^.^

    Don't know buy the guy didn't act surprised when he saw me come in to return it. It's okay, I really wanted to keep my 5c anyways. It's not like there is anything wrong with it. Traded in my other 5c and older iPad. Saved almost $300 on this new iPad mini 3 64GB in space gray.

    Did Apple Store sell you someone else`s return unit you think?
    If they did that then it wasnt nice at all. How can they do such a thing? You pay full price for a new phone, and you get someones used ip6 instead

    well now seen some peoples posts about damage scratches etc, im not so upset with the little like dot mark on back of my 6.

    But you could also take it back and get a new phone! I did that yesterday cus i had that black little dot.

    Then i just read that the quality control went downhill making the 6 because of the demand and for not really forecast the start production. Thats really sad, i mean the phone is pretty expensive after all.

    The people at the Apple Store never seem to be surprised with any return whatsoever. It's just like a common occurrence for them.

    I mean they never seem to have any type of reaction on any type of return from what I've experienced. Kind of like a "Just another return with whatever issue. Just lemme get this done already" type mentality.
