Signed and opened the package for inspection somewhat nervously. There wasn't a ding on the phone. Not a scratch, dent or ding to be found.
Disgusting and fraudulent. Apple tells me through remote diagnostics that it has multiple hardware issues and is defective to the point it is unusable.
As a disclaimer, this is the slipperiest phone i have ever encountered. But other than that a spectacular device with no scratches on the screen.
