    My friend decided it was smart to use his iPhone while his hands were covered with sand

    Who doesn't know that sand scratches glass? That was really dumb.

    try taking on a straight shot... it won't look as bad with the light not hitting it at an angle. Every one's phone that isn't covered will have micro scratches on their glass.... unavoidable.

    I love having my back scratched. Feels good. Especially when I have sunburn.

    I don't see the problem.

    Just normal wear and tear.

    Take a light and look at the paint finish of your car it looks the same, then go to the dealer and look at the ones in the showroom, the paint will look like a mirror.

    Yet if you take the issue up with a dealer on a week old car you are told to take a hike.

    My car has no swirl marks, thank you very much. I wax and polish it to keep the paint protected.

    I guarantee if you don't wax it for 4 months and look at the paint you will see the same thing as in the picture. Now go ahead and wax it and check again. It will look brand new, that's the point of waxing and buffing a car.

    Wrong. Wax doesn't remove scratches or swirls. It fills light swirls. To remove them you must use a light finishing polish, sometimes after a medium-heavy cutting compound. Then wipe down to remove oils and then wax. Just had to point that out :)

    The fresh wax finish on my car says other wise. Side note not talking about removing, talking about covering up.

    it's getting my friend to hold the phone steady that's the hard part. They don't like when I sling ADM polish all over them either... :D

    Just take some of this with a microfiber cloth and rub the hell out of it, it will take car of the swirls.

    To be honest, it would be way worst if he scratched on the aluminium :D

    I just put a screen protector over the Apple logo on the back. It has given it a cool shadow effect around the edges.
