Seriously though, I immediately called Apple and they can swap it for somewhere between €200-€250. Should I do it, or learn to live with it? I had that thing damage free until today
Already payed €650 for the phone, doesn't spending another €250 sound silly?
exactly why i throw a $5 slim case on it.
edit: also why i bought apple care+ for $99

All day ^ this. Resale value has plummeted, but inside a case it will still look like a pristine iPhone. To you, anyway.

The only one you need to be "pissed" at is yourself for dropping your phone and not using a case. Everyone knows that if you drop something there's a high chance that its gonna chip/scratch/crack or just break all together.

I have some very similar dings on my phone as well but I went to a third party iPhone repair shop. They said they haven't gotten in any supplies in yet for cosmetic repairs to the ip5 but I'll hit them up again soon. No biggie.

Dude, you got off easy. The screen isn't cracked, and chips and all, the phone still looks pretty darn good. A fall like that cracks lots of screens!

Honestly I'd just keep using it as is and not worry about it. You could get some sandpaper and rub the rough bits off, I guess.. but that'd make it even messier looking. Up to you!

Yeah no kidding. My phone looked like yours BEFORE it dropped out of my chest pocket when I bent over to put air in my tire on CHRISTMAS DAY. The screen shattered and it cost me $200.

Buy a black bumper off amazon and call it a day. You lost your privilege of having a naked iPhone.. As I did as well.
