    As the title says. Chamfered edge, so it will scuff just like the iPhone 5. Great.... :(

    Thought the same thing when I saw it. Hopefully some lessons were learning with IP5.

    I doubt it, since it hasn't been long enough for them to modify production, in my opinion.

    I was really looking forward to ordering this on day 1, but now I'm hesitant, after having had issues with my black iPhone 5's dents and scuffs out of the box. Maybe I'll get the white one.

    How about waiting until the product is delivered before proclaiming another "gate.":rolleyes:

    Well, the iPhone 5 has the exact same chamfered edge and anodized aluminum, so its fairly safe to assume that the iPad mini will have the same issues.

    Mine has a few scuffs now. Only seems to be since it was in the plastic case I've got on now. Don't mind though. :D
