    I am one of the people who decided to return their iPhone 5 and wait until Apple resolve the anodise scuffing issue. I miss the iPhone 5 but I don't want to buy and return it again.

    What is your opinion, should I buy now or should I hold off for a little longer?

    Don't buy. You won't be happy.

    This. It's perfectly possible to keep your phone scratch free Apple are not going to solve what they themselves say is a non-issue. Keep it in a case...Problem solved.

    Since Apple seems to be quietly accepting the problem and replacing, I'd feel comfortable buying now.

    yeah i don't see apple chaning anything... they might get rid of the scuff-out-of-the-box problem but they won't change anything in terms of production or material

    One, if you're the type of person that would hold off initially b/c of this & start a thread about it, I would wait b/c you aren't going to be happy If there's the slightest speck of dust on your phone when you take it out of the box. Right?

    Second, Phil Schiller had an interesting email yesterday explaining that he thought the "scuffing" issue is a normal, non-issue, so I don't see anything changing.

    Just my thoughts.

    I don't think you read my post, I didn't hold off initially. I'm now though, because I don't want to keep returning damaged goods to apple.
