Like they usually say, “more expensive isn’t always perfect”. An iPhone XS Max buyer is in pains right now as his new iPhone XS Max arrived with a defective display. According to Apple’s official website, the base variant of this smartphone sells for $1,099 and with that price tag, we all expect perfection. However, that was not the case for Musthafa Ali who bought a new iPhone XS Max from Vodafone Sydney NSW. From his Twitter feed, Musthafa clearly appears devastated as this was the least he expected. The display has a thin white line from the right side of the notch down to the chin. This line is only visible when the phone’s display is active.

So far, there has been a couple of ideas with regards to this defect. While some believe that its a factory defect and it will be seamlessly replaced by Apple, others believe that this smartphone took a hard fall while shipping. A funny chap concluded that this is a photoshop by the poster for advertisement. Either way, no one wants to see any early defects from a $1000 phone.
