I wonder if the OP likes scratches on his car. :P

But in all seriousness - I have the white iPhone 5 so I don't really have to worry about this issue, but I do have it in a case.

I don't have it in a case to protect it, I have it in a case because it makes it unique. I get lots of compliments on my case.

I think scuffing and scratching looks TERRIBLE.

My first phone, the paint just fell off it in the first 3 days of owning it. Apple replaced it. I managed to get a perfect out of box one and I use it with a calypso case so it means I get to hold it as intended. Naked. The case is as nice as the phone its self. Best of all it's still looking brand new.

I'll take a brand new one over a scratched one any day thanks!

It's not that the anodizing is defective, as such, it's that Apple chose to apply it cheaply for maximum profit.

If they had used type III anodization, it would have been much more durable and much more appropriate for something used as regularly as a smartphone.

Took these with my old iPhone 4.
You may like it but it looks like a 3 year old beat up phone

I've dropped my phone twice already, and haven't babied it at all.

It still looks perfect, because it's in an InCase Slider.

Cased forever. When ya'll can't get much money for your beat to hell iPhone 5's in a few years before upgrading, I'll be getting the whole value.

Only Apple/MacRumors fanboys can convince themselves that a phone being really easily scratchable is a good thing. Rofl.

fortunately for some of us we don't have to worry about resale value since we're either:

a) going to keep the phone even after it's retired from daily use
b) going to pass it down to a family member
c) can afford the $30 resale value hit that it's gonna take for having a *gasp* scratch
d) don't care
e) A & D only
f) B & D only
g) C & D only

Just a update, I did get a replacement because the iPhone on this thread broke. People saying the new "batches" of iPhones fixes this scuff issues are wrong. This ******** still scuffs easily I must say.
