If you’ve been reading IntoMobile in the last few days, you’ll know of Will’s woes with iPhone 3GS case rattle (buddy, I feel for you big time, I’d be gutted also) – various anecdotal evidence suggests Will’s troubles are not isolated (well at least all the ones in the Apple shop Will tried had the problem!)
(I should probably say at this point that a rattle wouldn’t even be classified as an issue to some people, but is to others – perception of an issue is key here)
Mercifully, the iPhone 3G (my one that is) has been creak-free up until now – and I have to qualify that by saying I’ve had some REALLY poor devices in the past that have creaked and cracked their way along through normal usage. I’d not really experienced any of that with the iPhone 3G.
However, the last few days have been bad for creakage . The iPhone now has developed a creak when I hold the device at each end in one hand, then press the on/off button. Given Apple’s legendary build quality, that ain’t good. Of course, I thought it wouldn’t be a long term problem as I’m planning to get an iPhone 3GS, but given Will’s issues, I might just hold off!
Anyone else’s device doing the creak?
