    My Gold iPhone has a few scuffs and dents on the gold bezel and I am wondering how to polish this and get rid of these marks as it makes the phone look bad. The back of my 5S is flawless and clean but the outer bezel has a few scuffs.

    If your bothered, you should have bought a case... But sadly, as has been said, nothing you can do. You could get an iphone repair shop to replace the bezel if it's really bad, but a case is cheaper lol.

    A case is all iPhones. Not to mention the incredibly fragil 4 and 4S.

    Pray that your power button stops working. If it does or another manufacturing defect comes up then get a replacement and put a case on ot.

    Yea, I don't have a case on mine, and scratches and scuffs are just part of wear and tear. That is going to happen without a case. If you can't stand the scuffs, put a case on. Problem solved.

    Had my gold since October, only invisishield on The back and front.

    Always keep your phone in a pocket with no coins or keys. I don't have one scratch not it...

    Just took my 5s out of its rubber see through clear case to clean it and change the front and rear screen protectors, looks like the day i bought it. Not a single flaw. If scuffs bother you that much get a case.

    You would want to reconsider polishing it..
    I almost regretted polishing my White iPhone 5 bezel because it turned out to be more or less uneven now.
    I'd love to post some pics though

    I just use a case when I'm out & about or at work, then use it naked when I get home. Mine's flawless.

    If you polish the bezel you'll probably take the anodized coating off. I wouldn't suggest it unless you're interested in making parts of your phone silver instead of gold.
