Black iPhone 5 antenna concern
A couple of the new reviews mentioned they are already noticing the black wearing off the antenna bands. This is not good if true. I haven't seen any pics of the claims, but this is one serious area of concern for me. I don't use a case and would hate for it to start showing silver.
I am sure Apple tested it for durability, but still....it's a concern for me.

I just wonder what they did to them for it to start to fade. They haven't even had one for a week and it starts to fade? I am wondering what kind of ringer they put it through. I guess we'll know for sure once the public has it and all methods of how people handle them start happening. You can never test for real world use.

And where is the other review? The claim that this was "a couple of new reviews". I only see one so far. I'm not saying it's not true, just that I can't evaluate hearsay.

Since it being aluminum I wonder it pitting of the aluminum should also be a concern. I hope that the color on the side bands coming off doesn't become another attanae gate. If so get your black sharpies ready.
Even when using a case debris tends to get between a case and a phone and can cause scratches possibly. Maybe a Zagg protector on the back will help protect against scratch color wear on the back at least.
