Why wouldn't it be, its basically the same phone, just with some internal improvements.
Did it come like this or has it occurred since your brought it?
Its not my phone, saw it on another forum. Owner says he hasnt dropped the phone.
Was his phone in a hard plastic case?
if you look at the iphone 5s on display at the apple store, most of them have the same scratches around the pin connector area. nothing is scratch proof in this world. only metal is more obvious than plastic when scratched.
the previous slate color reveals scratches more easily than the current gray.
That's why I got a bumper case from elago, best case I've had so far!
Why would one expect it to not scratch? If material A is harder than material B then material B will scratch. The iPhone's coating isn't made from the hardest material out there so it can scratch. The anodizing is on the surface so scratches will show.
This is one of the reasons why I glad that I had ordered the Silver iPhone 5 on launch day last year and the reason why I stuck with Silver for the 5s.
The Slate/Space Gray is very sleek but when it has a lot of scratches like that, it takes away from the beauty of the phone.
.there was no silver iPhone 5!
And to the OP, yes, scratching will happen. That really looks like something hard rubbed against that edge.
I'd say it's a new phone in the same case. But I digress.
Yes there was? White and silver.
This is not a shock. It's the iPhone 5. All you bought was the chips and the new home button.
Yeah, that was considered the white one.
Tell them to not put his phone in his pocket with his car keys!
I guess it comes down to how we define a scratch. My iPhone 5 has this, but I've never seen it as a scratch. I just see it as normal wear over time (it happened over time, not all at once).
A scratch to me is when an object scrapes another object and the resulting mark left is a scratch. This is the paint wearing off, a scuff if you want to go that far.
My iPhone 5 does not have any scratches on it, but it does have several places where the paint has worn off.
Semantics I guess.
It's identical, same material, just a slightly different color, so YES it could happen.
I strongly recommend the white, where scuffs are less visible (like my iPhone 5), but in some areas, like the photo shows, it could happen.
You should have gone for the undercoat and rust proof.
as others said, did anyone expect something different? They used the same materials and anodizing process.
In your pockets lives these particles called dust and sand. These particles do more damage to your phones than anything south of a diamond. It doesn't matter what material your current phone is made out of. If you out it in your pocket it will be scratched. You can have it in a otter box and if there is sand inside it will scratch it.
DUST? Dust can't scratch anything
SAND? Why would there be sand in your pockets? We don't live on beaches
Oh, I'm sorry...White. The white iPhone 5 is exactly the same as the silver 5s.
I must be unusual, I had 2 white iPhone 5's, both started showing wear and tear within a week or so, I've had a grey 5s since launch day, it is still immaculate and has been pocket carried naked most of the time, it's also been charged many nights and clipped into a car bracket with car charger on some days to use as a dashcam.
Somehow, with my usage, the grey 5s is far less prone to scratching and wear, personally I would say the finish is hardier, and less prone to wear.
No problem, wasn't sure if you weren't really familiar with them, or just meant the white one.
I saw the white/silver 5s in the Sprint store last weekend, first time I've ever gotten to see one
this store had very bad lighting, so I actually couldn't form an opinion of it.
You should have a dedicated phone pocket.
