Okay so I see all this stuff about how prone the aluminium is to scuffs and dents so thought I would give my opinion I have had the 4s - dropped once from waist and the back glass shattered. iPhone 5 - Dropped countless times from waist height onto all surfaces (concrete, grass, lino). Phone is fine, okay so it has dents and dings to the aluminium but nothing is broken. So maybe it isn't a design flaw? With the aluminium being soft I think it absorbs impact more. Yes it looks bad with the dents and scuffs but it's in one piece?
