Will Space Grey with no case hold up compared to Slate 5?

    I just switched from a white iPhone 5 to a "Space Grey" 5s. I tried the only TPU case I really liked(Belkin Candy Grip) and I can't stand the dust/lint that builds up around the edges of the case and the phone. I am tempted to rock it naked like I did my white 5, but I'm wondering if that's a good idea considering the Slate colored 5 model scuffed so easily.

    It looks like the lighter color and better construction this time around would allow it to be fine. My white 5 held up fine outside of a small nick or two that were entirely my fault(not enough to lose much value at all though.)

    Anyone else own a Space Grey 5s and not use a case? Has anyone dropped theirs thus far?

    Spigen sells a clear plastic back protector that you can buy to keep the phone from scratching easily. Otherwise you can expect even the new space gray version to scratch. I have the gold version currently and I hate cases so the plastic shield was the way to go for me.

    They will both scratch equally but the lighter 5S color might show less.
