    For $700 you'd expect a phone that can handle that stuff..

    Seriously.

    Did you know they sell deconstructed jeans for that much too? Sometimes more. Slap a Balmain label on it and bam.

    ????????

    Ever hear of Scuffgate?

    iPhone 5. Black/Slate. 2012. It happened. It was a real thing. Lots of threads here about, two or more of them with 200+ pages. PAGES! Not replies. MAJOR, giant reason why the color Black was gone from the iPhone from the 5s to now.

    Guess you missed it?

    Scratching is not new to the iPhone.
