Society is a bit funny sometimes. When we receive a product that is not up to the quality or standards we expect from the company, we make a fuss about it. However, there is another part of society where these sorts of quality issues are actually welcome and accepted because it represents a rare occurrence.
In fact, according to a tweet by the Internal Archive notes that an iPhone 11 Pro that made it off the assembly line with a misaligned logo was actually sold for $2,700. This is more than double what the phone is worth normally, but like we said, these rare situations are something that some people actually embrace.

This is due to how Apple is known for their strict QC, so for this phone to make it past the company is really quite “amazing”. Note that this phenomenon doesn’t just apply to Apple products either. We have seen this happen to other products like clothing or shoes where sometimes misaligned or misprinted logos or words will actually result in the item getting a boost in its value.
Obviously this isn’t something that’s necessarily for everyone, but it is worth something to the person who paid $2,700 for it, but what do you think? Would you pay this much for something similar to this?
