I don't understand why Apple decided to paint the bezel of the black iphone 5. I am sure that someone at Apple decided to paint the bezel at the last minute of production and because of this it is almost impossible to have a perfect iphone 5 even if you take care of it like nothing else. On the iphone 5 website they write this: Look at iPhone 5 and you can’t help but notice the exquisite chamfer surrounding the display. A crystalline diamond cuts this beveled edge. It’s what gives iPhone 5 its distinctive lines. Fitting for a phone so brilliant. If you have seen a white iphone you will love that mirror finish on the bezel, but on the black iphone someone decided to paint it to black and because of this bad decision almost all iphone 5 have scuffs and scratches on the black bezel. In the video Jony Ive say this: We then use crystalline diamonds to cut the chamfers. it is so exact that you're left with a near mirror finish. Why Jony Ive or else decided on the last minute to paint the chamfers or bezel to black, the mirror finish is amazing I could still don't understandy why they decided to paint it to black. Maybe some day I will decide to polish the bezel to keep my iphone 5 looking good for years instead of only days. Here are some photos of the production of the iphone where the machine polish the chamfers.
