I see what you're saying...it's statistically irrelevant to use anecdotal evidence. However, the chamfered edge on the iphone 5 shows scuffs extremely easily. I can say this just as readily as I can say that most car windshields will eventually get chipped by flying rocks during their lifespan. If you're truly not protecting your phone and you've truly had it since September with NO visible white marks on the chamfered edge then that's very surprising. I'd place a million dollar bet that your example would be the exception.

If this happens if you press a little bit, exchange it. It's common sense LCDs ripple of you press too hard so I don't think it's the OPs concern.

There are videos on YouTube where the guy presses the screen slightly and the whole screen ripples like a puddle.

Back to the question, I think the newer ones are much better in terms of having non defective coatings and not coming scratched out of the box. I have gone through many replacements and the units have less and less scratches although other problems remain.
