The holy grail gate


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

Seriously, I cannot believe how easily damaged the iPhone is, Apple really cheaped out this time. I came across this video and was astonished at how easily these guys could scratch and scuff it with simple household tools. Could this be the next ...gate?

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.
