    So since I have had my iP7+ I have used a UAG and Apple case. Yesterday I took my phone out of the Apple case to put on a tempered glass screen protector and noticed the metal, or plastic, trim between the screen and aluminum back had scratches on it. I have not dropped the phone nor were they there when I purchased the phone. I am assuming some debris in one of the cases caused it. Anyone else have this issue?

    My 6s has been also scratched, even if it was in case from day 1. So i decided to keep my new 7+ naked.

    Not a new problem. I see it reported all the time by people who use cases.

    It's another reason I do not use them.

    I have since decided to go partially naked. Keeping a screen protector on but no longer using a case.

    Are these scratches on the front, sides or back of the phone?

    Scratches from cases can be the culprit with an iPhone. I'm usually use my iPhone naked without any case. Although, I'm also very careful with my iPhone.

    Get a little dirt beneath the case and it will scratch the hell out of the phone. I only use a case because Apple refuses to make a phone that doesn't slide right out of my hand. Even in jet black, it's just too slippery. Form over function.

    Front. The aluminum casing is not scratched just the little barrier between the screen and the aluminum body.

    Micro particle may get between the case and the phone which leads to scratches. So use a protector like the one from the Gadgetshieldz to avoid these kind of issues.

    Can you post a picture? that plastic border is so thin I'm having a hard time imagining it looking scratched.
