Which one will show more scratches?
Can I use this as I have this at home?If you are worried about scratches just get some aluminum polish. Get something like this and it will remove the scratches on the edges.
But it is okay for Silver model?
Well don't intend to use it right away. Hopefully by the time I need to use anything, there will be articles on them.Likely yes. Surgical grade stainless that is used on the bands surrounding the iPhone X, is similar to that of 316 L stainless used for the Apple Watch stainless model. I have used the Cape Cod cloth for the stainless model Apple Watch and it remove scratches with ease.

So the SG model is hopeless for scratches?
The SG model looks nice and so does the Silver one.The Space gray bands uses a PVD coating, which allegedly is supposed to help strengthen and protect the stainless. I don't know that the Cape Cod cloth would be effective or not. Ultimately depends on the durability of the PVD coating.
Depends on what you're referring to. The silver has the surgical stainless edges surrounding the iPhone, which will likely scratch. However the space gray has a PVD coating around the stainless edges to help protect it.
The glass backings will obviously be the same.
Could someone point to a reference that PVD somehow strengthens or protects. All the Apple website says is that its a colouring technique and NO mention of it providing any additional resilience.
As others have said, even if PVD does provide some protection, it is unlikely to be as tough as DLC on the watches and if it does scratch will be silver underneath. Micro abrasions will polish out easily from the pure stainless steel silver with a cape cod cloth. Really tough to choose as neither are great for those pedantic about their phones......
