Have you considered a case to protect your phone from scratches? They even have completely clear ones that make it look like you don't have a case.

Does iPhone se matt edges gets scratched like iPhone 5,5s chamffered edges did?
The shiny chamfered edges of the 5/5s were scratch magnets and would show any/all imperfections. I even scratched my 5s once by just taking it out of a TPU case :mad:

I don't see the matte edges of the SE scratching quite so easily... but keep in mind the body is still made of aluminum (the same stuff that is used for soda cans) and will get scratched if you have an accident.

So, can we please clarify, what color of iPhone 5/5S scratched more, silver or space gray?
And, what part exactly? The back, the flat edge or the thin angled corners?
[doublepost=1461248265][/doublepost]Actually my understanding is that 5s in space grey was less likely to get scratched than 5 in black. So I would expect Apple built on that and continued to ensure SE doesn't scratch either?

I had a 5s space grey and it got scratched easily.the first parts that got scratched were the shining edges
