    Default How many drops without case so far?

    So just wondering how many of you have dropped your new 5s without a case so far? Any big nicks or scratches?

    I don't have a 5s, but I have often wondered the same question. I have a 5 and have only dropped it once and I honestly held my breath on the fall. No harm though. Element case worked. No dings.

    Dropped twice without a case and not a scratch at all! Dropped with a case 12' in the on to concrete and just the case scratched.

    I've dropped this thing so many times, its crazy!!! With & without the case. Not sure what's going on with me lately because I usually never drop my phone. Luckily, it doesn't have a scratch on it!!

    Drop mine this week from around 10-15 cm when I pull wrong charging cable. No scratch............but dent (very little around the top left corner)!

    I usually use my phone till it's too slow (upgrading from 4) or not worth to repair. Since for phones the resale price is not worth it, I usually pass it to my family.

    It's also still under warranty so I can exchange anytime with scratch/dentless iphone

    Will I use case in future? I don't think so, it feels sooo good at hand

    I dropped it once face down at the car wash about 2 weeks ago. no damage at all. Thankfully my Moshi screen protector saved it.

    The phone is meant to be seen without a case. Looks so much better naked. It's just tough because no matter how hard you try not to drop it there is always those freak accidents/drops. I have apple care so I feel protected if I do drop it. Does anyone have a couple mArks on their 5s from a drop?

    I don't think AppleCare covers physical damages. Read the fine print again.

    AppleCare+ does cover accidental damage. $99 for two years coverage and $79 deductible for a damage replacement which can be done twice in the 2 year coverage period.

    Dropped my gold 5S a couple of days ago in my bathroom on the very same tile floor that shattered the screen on my iPhone 5. All was well this time, though.

    Nah. No case. Looks to be a very small nick on the back part of the phone on the edge of the bezel. You really have to look to see it.

    Hi guys and girls. I just ordered my 5S in golden brat-edition. We swedes got it very late. So I thought to pop up with a question to You who do own this phone:

    1) Will it scratch as fast as 5 no matter if it never get a single ding or dash even if I don't have anything in my pocket?

    2) Does it really matter what color you're having?

    Thx for the help! Really looking forward my phone which I'll get after a month or so...

    1) No it doesn't get scratched as quickly as the black 5 did

    2) I say get the color you like best...all 3 colors seem to hold up very well

    Haha I mean doesn't it sorta suck that such a great looking phone (the best looking one on the market) has some scratches? Haha is it something you can deal with?

    I'm with you on this and would rather save the $79 deductible for larger damage such as a cracked screen or something.

    I mean, it sucks that my phones get scratched, but it doesn't bother me. Unless it's a huge scratch on the screen that obstructs my view.

    Yup. I'm getting my money's worth and beating the hell outta it.

    But here's the thing. If you replaced your phone right now chances are your getting a brand new one right out of the white box cause the 5s is hard to come by. If you wait 6 months I feel like your getting the black box one with is refurbished? Maybe not?

    Refurbished isn't as ugly a word to me as it is to many people. Refurbished phones go through testing and usually a big sum of the parts on them are new. I would never pay $79 for a replacement device because of a scratch. Let alone use up one of my two $79 replacements that Apple Care + provides.
