Anybody dented their Iphone 5 yet?

Mine has been, looks really unattractive unlike the iphone 4 which the glass could be replaced easy..but the plastic looked a little scruffy. The metal band round the side is easy dented if it drops though.

Looks bad enough for me to maybe buy a replacement.

Why don't you just put a thin case on it?

Dropped my naked a couple of times from chair height to wooden floor without any signs of damage.

They make these things called "cases". They seem to be working well for me.

For those of you complaining that your phone looks horrible after a drop just a bit of advice... don't drop your phone.

Mine looks great (hope it stays that way). I only have a clear glasslike sticker on either side so it's protected against potential scratches. Anyway, I would NEVER put my phone in a case. It totally defeats the purpose of its lightness and thinness. Also, if it matters, it becomes discernible as to which phone you have. It's like driving a luxury car that's encased, except windows, wheels, etc, because you don't want anything bad to happen to it.

In short, I would rather pay for a replacement than buy a case.
