I have had mine since launch day, no scuffs so far.

My case gets delivered tomorrow though, you'd have to be an crazy person not to use one

My work just got a handful of these in today for testing. Only one in eight were scuffed. Much better than the original iPhone 5.

Scuff gate issues with the space grey?

I was wondering since some people have had their iphone 5s for a few days are there issues with scuff gate on the space grey 5s?

I put the apple leather case on mine right away. However the Space Grey is much lighter than the black from last year. I don't think it will be as noticable.

Finally I want to mention with the design of the new leather cases, the gold will look really good in a black case.

The whole point of his reply was that he actually has a grey 5S

(also, pro tip: don't keep keys/quarters/anything in the same pocket as your phone. duh)

No. But the new leather case shows the front chamfered edge of the entire phone, which has more shine to it than the back. It would look damn sexy like that.

Worst? Really? It's actually a valid question. If you don't like the thread you don't have to comment. Be positive or be silent.
