|TKG26||Really would they ever admit to work stoppage or a strike? Swept under the rug...|

|Arthur Dent||If actually there was a strike for the reasons mentioned, this only means that Foxconn can't produce enough iPhone 5s. I don't see how Apple could be in trouble because of this.|

Others have reported the Foxconn strike as well, so there's nothing wrong with the BGR source.
UPDATE: Looks like there may not have been an actual strike after all.

|NeilN||That is, they post reviews you don't agree with so they're "completely biased" or lying?|

|BGY11||Foxconn makes products for many companies other than Apple, and at no point has it been stated that it was people working on building the iPhone 5 that had gone on strike (or even caused the big brawl that happened a few weeks ago).|

|Coop||I think Apple know's they have a problem with the 5, when your manufacturer Foxconn goes on strike over quality control issues it can't be good.|

No product is perfect. Search for any Android device on XDA and you'll find lots of complaints. Scratched screens and devices, screens lifting from the bezel, broken speakers, for example. Since Apple sells so many iPhones it's understandable you'll hear a lot of complaints like those that have been reported.
If Apple rushed the iPhone 5 by this logic, then so many other products were rushed to market.
Oh, and as for poor battery life, I bet lots of people with that issue are using LTE a lot. That is a battery killer no matter what device you have.

|Arthur Dent||If history teaches us anything, the more "failures" every new iPhone release has, the better it sells. I don't think the 5 will be an exception from the rule.|

Well I actually have the iPhone 5....from the 3....to the 4 to the 4S. Was a large BB user for many years.

|NeilN||It's a "huge failure" because it doesn't match some techies' wet dream? Seriously? This the same Slashdot crowd who wrote off the iPod when it was introduced?|

I thought your point was "iPhone 5 Rushed, an Epic Failure" which, as most non-partisans would agree, is laughable. And now you're bringing out that hoary old chestnut that iPhone buyers are sheep, sucked in by Apple marketing.
