Simple question. My current phone is the iPhone 4 which had the glass back, so I have a screen protector on the back. Does the iPhone 5 also need a back protector given that it now has a metal back?

I plan to use a case on my iphone 5 when I get it...so do you think a back protector is still necessary? I'm not sure if pieces of dust or something could scratch the iphone 5 back even when it is in case?

I'v always used screen and back protectors on my phones, and I would think the iPhone 5 is going to need it to. Though I never used cases on mine. Just waiting for SGP to release their full body kit dry install because I'm not much of a fan of wet installs.

I keep hearing about the iPhone 5 back being easily scratched. Dont have one currently but going to purchase one real soon.
