Same... I'm on my 3rd refurb but I kept the original plastic on this one so the back didn't get scratched (the back glass is less scratch-resistant than the front glass for sure!!!). I tend not to use a case but it's still pretty perfect
It's funny cause a lot of people complain that it's fragile because of the glass but I drop it all the time and I have no scratches, plus with the older plastic phones it was impossible not to scratch them.

Yeah, I think somehow the latest batches have had strengthened glass. Because when I first got my iPhone 4 I dropped it once and the screen got a long hairline crack. With this latest one just yesterday it smacked on the floor pretty damn hard twice and no damage what so ever.

Has Apple even mentioned they were releasing a new iPhone this year? Ppl, Apple never said they were actually releasing one. We are just assuming because it's time. It would be so funny if Apple finally came out and said that a new phone will come out 2012. Why does Apple keep this so secretive? It's a dang cell phone for Christ sake. You would swear they were holding the nuclear codes. They could atleast tell us if they are or not and what devices without showing their competitors. Apple is probably in Cal laughing at us.

Besides, would you rather they follow Samsung's example? They announced the Galaxy S2 phone in Feb. and released it in S. Korea & UK in May. It finally got to the U.S. this month (Sprint only as of today), a full SEVEN months after people first got a look at it. Notice any lines for the S2?
How many Android fans are now holding out for Nexus Prime with ICS? That's also a Samsung product, but it's basically dampening S2 sales and they'll have to drop prices pretty soon in order to clear inventory.
The reality is that most people get a new phone when they need it or when their contract is up. The tech punditry make their living revving up technophiles to buy the latest & greatest device, but we're talking about a relatively small minority of the consuming public.
