    Here

    Mine is perfectly nick-free (as I suspect are many others).
    I can't show you, as I only have the iPhone 6 itself to take a picture here at work.

    Why do you need proof that others have pristine iPhones before sending yours back?

    If yours arrived scuffed up, just return it.

    just got back from a friends house where his iphone was just delivered.

    Both mine (64gb black) and his (32gb black) are perfect.

    Here's the kicker...

    I plug my phone in almost every single night. I also plug headphones in almost every single night (I like to catch some news/break/music before bed). I do this in the dark, blind -- thank you apple for the reversible connector by the way... I had a HELL of a time plugging in the charger last night... I could HEAR it scraping all along the bottom of the phone as I searched around <insert failed love life joke here>. Not a single mark. I think I may see a tiny scratch or something but nothing thru to the metal.

    There's millions of other black iphone 5's with no nicks or scratches.
    You really need proof or do you think they are all scratched up because yours was?

    If the finish is so hard to scratch, it makes me wonder WTF happened at the plant to cause so much damage to them.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they had internal damage too, if they were subjected to that much abuse!

    The vast majority come problem free. What you're hearing all over message boards is the vocal minority. Mine came 100% perfect and still looks good even after I bonked it on a metal laundry room shelf (tho I did die inside for a moment).

    I was just talking to my aforementioned friend and we were discussing how we wish we had the nads to carry these around w/o a case... I may do it one day... for the cost of 2 otterbox cases, I could have it repalced under my applecare warranty...

    Yes it is in good condition and no I will not prove it. Seems childish to ask people to prove that they received an iPhone 5 in good condition.

    Thanks for the replies. Just asked because mine has a major chip in the aluminium bezel on the phone and was like that straight out of the box. Wasn't happy seen as I just spent £600 on it to open a new phone which wasn't perfect.

    Prove it? Why should anybody have to prove they received a good phone? What is this forum coming too?..
