So how's everyones iPhones looking now they have used them for a few weeks?mainly the people who don't use cases. I got mine on Saturday and except for a few fingerprints it looks fine.

Hopefully it won't start looking battered like the 3g/3gs

So far so good. I don't use a case, but it is wrapped in an IS. I haven't dropped it yet either *knocks on wood*.

The glass on the front and back are fine, but the metal band isscratched from the freaking bumper. I use a case 50% of the time, no longer using the bumper.

Mine looks great. I have been using a Belkin Vue Grip case. Just recently I put on a rubber bumper'esque case from Hong Kong. It cost $3.00.

I have heard the Apple Bumper scratched some phones, however this knockoff is much softer than Apple's. It's white and looks great. However I wouldn't trust it as much as I do the Belkin wrap around.

No case and lookin sharp. Admittedly, whenever I buy something new I'm super careful with it for the first few months then stop caring so much.
Same for me. I've bought quite a few different skins,luckylabs and screen protectors and not used a case. No scratches anywhere yet :)

I thought you were all crazy until I took my iPhone 4 out of my pocket a minute ago and there was a little swirl scratch on the back glass, I have no idea how it got there between when I first looked at this thread until now because all I did was put it back in my pocket after I checked, but it makes me mad that it scratches that easily. This thing was brand new on Saturday afternoon and already has a scratch. :mad: Maybe I'll ghostarmor it and put on an Apple bumper.

Mine is looking great. I was using a bumper for a while until my mom purchased one without the case. I gave her mine since I knew she wouldn't be as careful with it as I was.

I still have mine with an Invisible Shield, so it's not completely naked while I wait for my free case. I'm just afraid of dropping it now.

Mine was in a Bodyglove case for the first 2 weeks, then I dressed it up in Lucky Labs wraps and dry Zagg IS for the back (the front got screwed up when I was installing it :eek:) and now it's wearing the same wrap and PS crystal front and back protectors.
The fingerprints are irritating. But no scratches or anything. I'm babying it of course, but I always do with all my things. OCD, probably. :D

I don't know how people can manage without a case. I drop things just looking at them. Since I've got mine in an Otterbox defender, I'll let you guess as to how it's doing.

Otterbox cases are the untimate cases for protection, but are so damn bulky. Guess that's why they're so good though.

Wait.. what's wrong with the signal? You've obviously covered up the weak spot, so there is actually no issue then.

Got a screen protector on front and back, and just started using my free bumper. It's in fine condition. No drops yet.
