Apple's iPhone 5S appears to have been just tossed together if recent hardware and software issues indicate its quality (NASDAQ:AAPL)

Since it's launch, Apple's iPhone 5S has been on the receiving end of both glowing reviews as well as harsh criticism, and today a new report from our friends over at Gizmodo has pointed out yet another failure in Apple's flagship. Journalist Mario Aguilar noticed that his iPhone 5S was not correctly reporting angles, and level correctly so he ran a series of test to determine how far off things were.

The report unveils that the motion tracking sensors built into the phone are not operating properly, and his test show that some of the sensors could be off as much 3-degrees. Some other reports suggest that they could be off as much as 12-degrees. All of the sensors appear to be off including the inclinometer, accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. Before anyone begins shouting that the 3rd part apps were off, testing was apparently conducted using Apple's included apps.
