I consider this a bit of an issue. I don't like using a case (for many reasons), and I can see this really compromising the phone aesthetics.
This was expected from the black iPhone anyway. This will look ugly after a few weeks of use.
Naked users: I hope you're not OCD. But since you're going naked I assume you aren't anyway
Other wise everybody else will be wrapping this in cases, such a shame because it will hide the beauty of this phone
Also skins won't prevent this from happening since the scratches will be at the edges.
Zoom in on the SIM slot and that looks awful too.
It's a phone, not a da Vinci.
It doesn't look that bad. People won't be holding your phone up to a magnifying glass looking for scuffs. If you don't want your phone getting scuffed, get a case or don't use it. Or better yet, don't buy it.
this is bad news. i ordered the black one.
505?? New mex??
So maybe I'll order a skin now
No. This is a random username I picked when I was 10 and it has stuck for 8 years
I ordered the black, and will be keeping the black.
A few scuffs makes my device unique to me, and I really don't find it to look that bad.
it builds to the phone's toughness now when people see it they will think it TUFF and RUGGED!!
For yourself or the phone?
Ugh. How could the design team not think of this in advance?
FAKE! We obviously don't have 2 dollar coins.
There are $2 coins?! I barely get $2 bills!!
Looks like that 2 dollar coin is going through it's own scuff gate
A black sharpie will fix those scuffs right up!
It's pretty insane that they didn't.
Reading the responses here (and in the other thread), it seems there are pretty much two reactions:
(1) this is an issue that compromises the beauty of a device that Apple literally presented to the public as a crown jewel, OR
(2) NO BIG DEAL.
Yeah, I get in the grand scheme of things, it's no big deal. The phone will still look decent. But we all hold Apple to a somewhat higher standard -- the standard Apple holds others to -- so this kind of design flaw or oversight or whatever is doubly shocking/annoying.
I don't use a case, don't want to use a case, but I know over time the black will chip away and reveal random bits of the silver-looking aluminum underneath. I don't consider that to give it character or be "unique," I consider it to look sort of cheap and old.
Will it make me cancel my two pre-orders? No. Will the phone be less functional or awesome of a toy? No. But it's definitely something that could've been avoided, and it will definitely compromise the aesthetic appeal of this device.
So let me get this straight. If you rub the very edge of the side band on the phone with a coin in will scuff. yes this is shocking news Getting black tomorrow and keeping black.
Ha Ha Ha I was thinking the exact same thing
Think of it this way. If the phone is in your pocket, along with some coins or a key, over time, yeah, it will scuff as shown in the picture.
Yeah and in other news if I take my car keys and run them across the side of my car it will scratch.
I really dont understand how this is any different than any other phone...
Ok, I dont know about other people but I am pretty careful not to put my $750 phone in my pocket with keys or coins. I am pretty sure if you do this any phone you could scuff/scratch it.
