That picture is inaccurate and does not accurately portray the "issue".
That phone did not "easily" get scratched, the user who took the photo went to an AT&T store and forcefully scratched an iPhone demo unit using his car keys.
But to answer your question, No.
It is a little bit dramatic, but it represents the worst scenario. If you are using your iphone 5 without a case and it doesn't have ANY scratch just answer the poll with the third answer. I made it to have an statistic idea of the housing hardness.
I just dropped my over a week old naked iP5 about 3 feet high on a ceramic tile at Starbucks - no scratch, no ding, no scuff damage. Felt like my heart stopped beating for few seconds!
From the old Nixon administration days . . . Watergate.
I have edited it. Is it ok now? I guess that if you say that that picture is "reality" the right answer is that it gets barely scratched. And not the third option.
I've got 2 very very little scuff marks.....and all i do with it is put in jeans pocket with a soft wallet, and leave it on soft surface at work.....bit disappointed really, not too bothered with the way it looks now as long as it stays the same.....i'm just worried what it's gonna be like in 6 months time.....even if i treat it with 100% care........although i don't use a case, cos that's just defeating the object of its awesome appearance!
