    I agree as well. Very pleasantly surprised about my jet black version. First it looks incredible and second it feels so awesome in the hand and very non-slippery...good grip. Excellent!

    Well, yesterday when I put it out of my tozo case, I saw scratches mostly around the antenna lines on the bottom.
    So it scratched up even with a case. or because of the case, I don't know. (I had some bad experiences with a Spigen Air Skin on my 6+ before)

    the good thing is, you can only see the scratches in direct light, the jet black is covering them up very well!

    Mine so far so good. I purchased mine last Thursday and prior to that on the same day, purchased a Spigen Hybrid Armor (gunmetal color) case and also a Devia slim tempered glass screen protector after getting the phone. Upon taking the phone out of the box, immediately placed inside the case.

    The only more exposed parts are the camera and true tone flash which definitely will have dusts and some marks over time.

    How is that Spigen Jet Black thin fit case holding up? I just ordered one and I'm interested to see if their marketing of scratch-resistance holds up on this case? Would you mind posting a few pics of your iPhone in the case for me?

    Thanks!

    My very own personal suggestion:

    Get a skin from Bestskinever. This is to prevent micro abrasions.

    Get a Spigen Liquid Crystal TPU case. Get a clear one or glossy black (like mine did)

    Good as new.
    The ones that look like they were tied to the back of a car like beer cans after a wedding probably were abused a bit, think so?
    Even two years later my SS watch edition still looks pretty good. It's got scratches just like any other SS watch case would have.

    Some people are hard on their stuff!

    You should see how bad some people's phones look INSIDE Otter/Speck/Pelican HARD USE cases. And the plastic screen protector is so fogged and scratched up! Ugh!

    Mine is scratched up mostly at the bottom, even though it's always been in a case.
    I don't even dare to put it out of its case anymore

    Don't have a Plus but have a Jet Black 7. I use it caseless and while there are a few fine scratches it is not noticeable. Trick is to refrain from polishing the finish every chance you get. I also make sure not put it in a pocket with other stuff.

    I actually think the whole micro abrasion thing has been blown out of proportion. The phone holds up just fine with sensible use.

    It's definitely not totally scratch resistant and I'm keeping my clear case on it for that reason
    Which clear case did you choose?

    I run mine without a case all the time. Sure, there are micro scratches, but I think they add character to a beautifully designed device.
