For those of you who have purchased "snap" type cases...
And particularly those with the black iPhone 5, have you noticed any wear on the anodized bezel when installing/removing the case? I am expecting an Incipio Feather case in the mail and am curious if I will experience "scuffgate" issues when putting the case on.

the crazy thing i am going naked with mine and it didn't scratch when i ran my finger nail across the back and that black metal going around the sides seems to be on there not like a flimsy rub paint or something i don't think it will come off that easily unless you are using metal to scrape it against and who does that just keep keys in one pocket and phone in the little one above or in another pocket.

I've taken my case (black plastic snap one) off a bunch already and it hasn't scratched. I don't think it's as easy to scratch as some people are claiming. I've probably taken it on and off 15+ times already. Can't decide if I want to go naked or not.
I'm sure it can scratch and may over time but its not something I'm really worried about.

I remember seeing a post about the 4/4s where someone was concerned about scratching from dust that worked its way into the bumpers and cases, so they cut thin pieces of scotch tape to cover the sides of their phone. Seems excessive, but figured I'd mention it.
