:/Hairline scratches that can only be seen under indoor lighting are most likely scratches in the oleophobic coating, which is pretty normal.
Hairline scratches on the body are VERY common if you're caseless because aluminum is such a soft metal that attracts scratches very easily.
Regarding the oleophobic coating scratches, it just means you haven't seen them under the correct lighting and angles. They're extremely difficult to catch unless under certain lighting.:/
Anodised aluminium is very hard and oleophobic coatings are as well.
Actually of all my smartphones, i don't recall seeing a scratched coating on either the case or the screen coating outside of a drop or chip
I also have this issue with my space grey six plus, it is only around the edges where the glass curves. It looks like someone has been rubbing it with a fine sandpaper.It looks like I may have similar scratches on my 6+ so I would also like to know the answer to this question, and otherwise what I might be able to do to repair them. Thanks!
When you say it that way, it is weird. But I then wonder why everyone always brings up oleophobic coating vs. screen if there is no difference.... A scratch is a scratch?I'm not trying to be a dick so please don't take this the wrong way. What would make you think that scratches would get smaller or heal themselves in other words?
