    I took the plunge today and bought an iPhone 5s in Space Grey as I think it's design is completely unmatched by the iPhone 6/6+ (that's just my opinion!). I've been scrolling through eBay for a cheap case and in the past I've always used rubber skins on my phones and other electronics. But now it seems that everything is TPU/Silicone and I was wondering if these snap-on cases could potentially scratch the phone, particularly the bezel, when placing the phone inside?

    Here's what I've just ordered -

    They describe it as soft TPU but I've never seen this material in the flesh..

    For my iPhone 5, I use a TPU case that I bought from Amazon. The brand is Diztronic.

    TPU is a pliable soft-touch plastic that shouldn't scratch the iPhone. The scratching risk comes from dirt and debris that can get under the case, but I've been lucky and suffered no damage yet.
