    Other than my original i5 being scratched on the bezel by my commuter case, I haven't had any issues. I got a warranty replacement device back in April and it still looks brand new. I think for the new 5s I will be going back to a white phone, I like how they look better in the cases.

    Lol I need to know these things. My black/slate 5 has the paint chipping on the sides that many have referenced. This despite my having used a case since day 1. I was hoping to avoid this by going with the white version of the 5S.
    I yet to ever chip the anodizing on mi i5 and I've owned one since release day. I sometimes use mine too.

    really??? I' have a commuter and used it much. Never scratched it. I am not even sure how it is possible due to the silicone skin on the inner.

    I don't know what the deal is with mine. It's evident from the forums that not everyone experiences the blemishes so I'm at a loss. But given the fact that I want to possibly forego a case on the 5S, I am now tempted to go white/silver.

    I have a black iPhone 5 and it's been naked for 8 months and some change. 2 or 3 minor blemishes on the bezel but it still looks great considering it has never been in case.

    I am convinced that the early adopters got the short end of the stick because the anodizing process wasn't optimized yet.

    I got my iPhone 5 on May 5th and I don't have any issues with the color being distorted or discoloration or nicks or anything...

    Likewise. I have had MIT i5 in same case since I got it and no scratches.
