Re: Any chipping/Knicks on the space gray units?
Ok, I had the black 5 and now have the gray 5S.

The big difference to me was during use. Within one hour of opening the 5, I had a 1/2 inch scuff on one of the angled edges from trying on a case. I decided to not use a case since a case can scratch it, and one year later I had plenty of scuffs all along the edges. Pics are in my old for sale thread in the marketplace. I just accepted it, and bought AppleCare + so I didn't have to worry.
So far the gray 5S has not scratched in the same areas as the 5. Only time will tell, but I can tell you that the texture feels different and the angled edges are shinny so maybe something changed. Also, they changed color for a reason so we will see but only time will tell. And I am rolling with only a screen protector.
