    I have no idea how it happened (I have a leather case) but I nicked the rim of the protruding camera. The lens is fine (so that's good) but the side has a minute chip/nick on it.

    There goes having a perfect iPhone 6 Plus. Lol

    Maybe Apple made it protruding to force us buy their case lol

    Ugh, sorry to hear :(

    It makes sense though as the rim of the camera is aluminum (the same stuff that makes soda cans), so you could imagine how easy it is to scratch such a soft metal.

    I'm a OCD/Anal so I can't stand any sort of nick on my phone and always put it in a full body protective case + screen protector as soon as I get it.

    At least it's on the back and you won't see it too often.

    I'll try to upload later. It's hard to see but it's there. Just to confirm - the home button and camera cover are made of sapphire right?

    As long as the lens isn't scratched, its ok, imo.

    This was always going to happen, sadly. I expect to see plenty of scratched rings - oo er.

    Thanks. I've got apple care so I'm debating on whether or not to go naked.

    Where do you see it's sapphire? Can't find it on the website.

    May as well take a key to the whole thing and score it up good. Give it that seasoned military look :D
