    Call me crazy, but I have always had my iPhones locked up and sealed away in a case because I couldn't stand the thought of getting it damaged. I was in a meeting this morning and one of my co workers pulled out their iPhone 5 and you could tell this phone had been dropped and abused a few times. The more I looked at his phone the better it started to look to me. Around the bezel was chipped up and missing paint but it had character. Maybe it's just me but I found it very cool looking

    Yeah sorta. It reminds me of an electric guitar from the 60s that's worn out and patched up. Just full of character

    Screen scratches would be a no go for me. I'm a little less worried about the body, but not going out of my way to induce either.

    Dings & scratches?! This is madness! I couldn't handle it. My iPhone goes straight from the box, and into a LifeProof. I even throw on the latex gloves when handling it for the first time, & when swapping cases.

    No fingerprints, smudges, scratches, Ever! Ever!
    Everrrrrr!!!!!

    After reading what I wrote it, I was like yeah, I'm crazy, lol.
    I bought my 64gb iPhone 5 off contract, even though I have insurance on it, I'm still treating this thing like Smeagol treats his precious.

    It's a computer so I treat it as carefully as my MacBook Air.
    Good Luck

    Yeah, I use the gloves so I don't leave fingerprints on the screen, or sticky side of a screen protector right before putting it on.

    I love that comparison! Nothing better looking than an old guitar that has been thoroughly used and abused! I am still trying to get my guitars to look like that! Haha.

    "worn" is cool, but I can't stand to see iphones (and other smart phones) with cracked, smashed screens. So many people just live with them, and it makes me sad.
