Already needed to use one of my AC+ replacements yesterday. The problem with this new iPhone is that while the glass is much less damage prone due to it sitting flush in the frame, the soft aluminum frame is much more damage prone. My phone suffered a small drop and landed on the bottom left corner. Completely warped the aluminum frame around the headphone jack, rendering it unusable. Also, I thought that without having a case the scratch-prone black aluminum anodizing would be safe from the scuffs caused by trapped debris. It Didn't matter, the anodizing flaked away on the beveled edges from regular use. Really don't feel like rocking an ugly case but I may have to if the frame damages that easily. USERS BEWARE.
