    So i just got my new white iphone 5. The device looks awesome (just as I expected). I deceided to go with this combo pack of TPU Shell Case (aka soft jacket), screen protector, PU leather case and movie stand:

    I was wondering if this TPU material will evetually ruin the anodised aluminium finish. I remember i used such case with a previous device of mine and it had lest some marks on the plastic bezel.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    I use a semi-soft (TPU) snap-on case and so far so good, no scratches.

    I read in xda developers a thread that stated that the exact same TPU cases cause marks on some other devices so i deceided to take it off.

    Thanks anyway

    TPU, silicone and similar porous materials will collect hand oils and dirt and become dingy overtime.

    I prefer dark cases.

    I use the grey Speck Pixel Skin HD and its perfect for the white iPhone 5 but dark enough to avoid showing dirt.
