So far I've hiked in two national parks, slipped on gravel and fell on the pocket holding my iPhone 5, and used it pretty much most of the day yesterday and today. No scuffs.And by that I mean, will it show signs of wear and get dinged up a lot easier than previous iPhones. Already I'm reading about people here seeing damage after only a couple days of light use.
and I actually think ill accept the normal wear. i don't even have my iPhone 5 yet.Dunno if anyone else here is familiar with firearms.
Though the iPhone coating isn't exactly the same as a firearm, my daily carry weapon develops wear from holstering/unholstering numerous times.
Now that the black iPhone has a metal anodized back, pocketing/unpocketing the phone hundreds of times is going to eventually put some wear on the finish.
