    I noticed the edge band that goes around the phone on the X is stated to be stainless steel? Is this polished stainless steel?

    If so, I guess we are going to expect scratches?

    Then I got to wonder if the darker version of the X (I know it comes in silver and a darker finish), if the darker finish might have a coating on the stainless steel edge like the Black watch, or if it is just shiny, polished stainless steel too?

    Hope everyone enjoys their new phone!
    Thanks!

    Thanks and sorry! The terms I used to search were probably bad. I do think if it helps someone it could be beneficial though.

    This is what I have now found:

    It seems to me from a hands on video I finally found that the Space Grey model looks VERY dark on the edges.

    Therefore, I want to assume it is coated like the Space Black Stainless watch.

    I say go for the Space Grey iPhone X to avoid dealing with scratches on the edge of the phone. The Space Black stainless is very durable.
