    Hi guys,

    I've been wondering how bad the 5S Grey scuffs compared to the black 5. Basically everyone I know who has a black i5 has scuffs on it which are really noticeable due to them being silver.

    So does it scuff as bad and are the scuffs as visible as on the i5?

    I'd say they are less visible on the 5s. The bezel on the 5 was black and the silver showed through. The bezel on the 5s is silver already so it doesn't show scuffs as much.

    They are just less visible, like in the silver model.

    just out of experience, the black 5 was really bad i had scratches all over the sides from a bumper. i have the apple leather case on the space grey 5s and there isn't one scratch on the sides or back.

    I have the 5s silver grey and I have one scratch on the side. idk if it was there when I bought it? But I noticed it after a week of using it. It's not very noticeable Other than that no other scratches. I'm switching between several cases though but the back side is scratch free.

    I used a rubber sleeve on my 5, not a scratch on it when I sold it. Fits my 5S too, of course. Very unobtrusive and keeps the phone from falling out of my shirt pocket when I bend down to pick something up. Got it from Verizon when I bought my 5.

    As someone who owned the slate 5 and now the space grey 5s, I can easily say it is a night a day difference. The 5 was near impossible to keep nick free (on the chamfered edges) no matter how well you took care of the phone. My 5s still looks brand new and I use it without a case.

    I've had my space gray 5s for about a month and a half now, and there are no scratches at all on it. I only have a SPIGEN Ultra Thin Air case protecting it. But I also baby my phones.

    I had the 5 in black and it scuffed ridiculously easy, but now I have the 5S in grey and don't have a single one that I can see despite never using a case and having it since October. It's is a dramatic improvement
