My friend just linked me to this interesting article regarding moving forward with the new iPhone 5 and it's lack of 'need' for a case. Although, with 12 days use on a black 5 with a Snugg case I completely disagree. Yes, glass and aluminium are scratch free but I have 5 marks on the edge/bezel that now have no 'black' finish anymore and are showing the raw silver colour underneath. http://www.cultofmac.com/190499/why...d-why-you-wont-need-a-case-for-your-iphone-5/ Have you guys gone straight for protection or are rocking it without one? And your findings after 2 week usage? I've decided to return mine now and wait for a white 32GB to come in stock. I can't be dealing with something brand new wearing that fast and I'm hoping the white/silver is less noticeable over time.
