    You need to remember, there are millions of people using a matte black iPhone. Usually people aren't posting online to check in and say their iPhone is still mint, so you're only seeing the few rare occurrences. If it was a common thing, you'd see it posted everywhere.

    I have seen the paint chipped off on my Friend's iPhone 7 in 3 different places on the back and it does not look pretty. I wonder how it will look with the paint on the entire back chipped off...And it's a fairly new phone as well..less than 3 months old...

    Mine is 5 months old, I hope I'm "safe" now

    Although I keep my Plus in an Apple leather case religiously...the top & bottom end are exposed in it, and I've dropped the phone a few times that I know it's hit the floor on one of tose sides...and I've had no damage at all. Overall, the matte black seems pretty tough to me!
