Someone please explain this to me. Other than resale value, why do you care about scratches on your iPhone. I am talking about the sides and back mostly as I can see why scratches on the front screen could be an issue. The reason I ask is that I see so many people who buy an iPhone and get a case on it as soon as they can so they do not get any scratches. The thing is though that those same people never ever ever have their phone naked. So if you can not see the surface that the scratches might be on then what is the big deal?
