iPhone 8 & Problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know this is not a pc related questions but I need some answers to this concern. I have gone through one iPhone 8 already in the model: Silver, Sim-free, 64gb. Sound great and all but I returned it. It apparently started to spilt open out of the box with noticeable gaps between the glass and chassis. So to have a second chance I exchanged it for a new one at my local apple store. With no questions asked I got the same model just 4 days after opening. Without any noticeable defects at first, I was happy to my situation solved. Coming home one day (being considerably sunny) I noticed my home button had a separation on the left corner. Like the 7 the iPhone 8 as a fake vibration button so home button issues shouldn't be a concern. So I talked with someone via the apple support app on my iPad and the person as always just asked if I would like it to be fixed via the genius bar. In two days I started feeling the defect. I guess I will return yet another iPhone to be replaced. I thought I would ask this with other people with the mindset of technology and if they had any history of this problems. Excuse any mistakes as I typed this fairly quickly.

There have been a few reports of other iPhone 8s experiencing this separation. I would try again for a new phone (and return that too if it has a problem) or stick with what you have and see what comes of it.

Yes I know. I don't know of any home button problems tho. It's really disappointing bc it is two times in a row with defective out of retail models.
