Scuff-Gate, would the solution be a curved bezel like on the iPad?

    Conceal the edges where it's most fragile. The smooth black back is near impossible to scratch.

    Cave Johnson wouldn't stop at making just the camera lens out of sapphire. Cave Johnson would've made the entire phone out of sapphire.

    I personally don't mind scuffs. They add character. I'm just thinking out-loud.

    Shockingly the answer is probably 'Hard aluminium'

    it's the anodized paint that scratches off, especially at the edges

    even hard aluminum is fragile at its edges

    From the pictures people have posted, it looks like there are a number of phones with actual scuffs in the metal, not just the top-layer of paint.
