    I have scratches all over the back of mine, with a quick look over it looks to be around 3-4 dozen. A few of them are deep to where I can feel them, and the remainder of them are small like spider webs but still very visible in certain light. I would post pics but my camera broke while on vacation...

    There's maybe less then a dozen on the front, but I really have to look for them. They are as thin as spider webs such as the ones on the back.

    I really don't understand this....I have taken care of it since the day I got it, never used a case, always kept in a pocket by itself....its just strange thats all....I thought this glass was supposed to be the cats ass in scratch resistance.

    How's everyone else's iPhone 4's looking?

    Looks great because I put a skin on front and back. Not taking chances with this phone, unlike the past ones that I left completely naked.

    My front screen is flawless. Not a single scratch. The back only has five scratches. 3 from when a friend put it down on a table. And two from when I dropped it about 6 inches onto a metal thing. I basically never put my phone on a hard surface. If I have to lay it down on a table or hard surface, I put it on a piece of paper or napkin or whatever. So yea....thats my phone.

    I nearly had a heart attack when my friend laid it on the table. I was depressed about the three scratches for about two weeks.

    Edit: The 5 scratches are all light. You can only see them when light hits them at the correct angle. Also, my phone is totally naked.

    just like it was when I opened the box.I went directly from the apple store on launch day to BB to get the IS installed. I've been thru 4 of them, but it is perfect. Also have a case installed (belkin sheild esclipse) with the IS front and back. Works rgeat

    Can't believe it is two months since I got it! I had a tiny scratch on the bezel and a scuff mark but used some Brasso to get rid of them! Apart from that, it is in great condition. My Sena case just got confimed delivery after a 3 week wait, so some protection on it's way! :D

    Using an incipio feather case. Got about a dozen tiny fine scratches on the home button and that's about it. Front and back glass still perfect. Did find a stuck pixel last night near the bottom right corner but I don't care like I would've when I first got the phone. 10 more months until iPhone V. lol

    Back is in mint condition thanks to a BSE film. Front has a very tiny - approximately 1mm - scratch. I only notice it when I'm cleaning the phone and the screen is off. Not sure how it got there, but I've since put on a screen protector to prevent any more. The stainless steel frame is perfect thanks to my bumper. This thing is still absolutely beautiful considering how many times I've dropped it; I've got some serious butterfingers.

    You could not tell mine apart from a brand new one from the box. I take excellent care of my gadgets. That way when a new and improved one comes out I can sell mine as "like new" and get a great price for it. I keep the boxes and all documents.

    i switch between naked and the bumper and have had it since day 1. it looks just as it did when I got it. It always amazes me to hear how careless some people are with their phones.

    My front *seems* perfect although I am not using a screen protector. The back *seems* perfect although there could be a small scratch on the Apple logo. I use a Griffin motif case.

    I say "seems" as I really try not to look at these things in the sun which I know exposes the smallest flaws.

    I suppose it would be more meaningful if we all advised how we care for our phones. I put mine in its own pocket in various pants. Nothing else. At home it rests on a thick microfibre cloth.
