Why does Apple choose to use such poor anodization for iPhone 5?
Having recently read the article on AnandTech on the iPhone 5 anodization process:
It bugs me why Apple does not choose to use better anodization. In particular, the anodization depth Apple uses is TOO THIN/SHALLOW, leading to poor paint retention and easily chipping of the paint.
The chamfered edge is also a terrible choice. Since anodization is even less by nature, the paint can only be adhered onto the surface.
Poor understanding of material science in the design.
