    I am planning on picking up a 5 due to a great deal. However in the event that it runs out, I am looking at the 5c. How does it hold up against scratches? I prefer to use my phones without cases (I did so with my first gen and 3gs iPhone, which only got slight superficial scratches), but I am somewhat obligated with my 4s and I imagine I would be with the 5. The 5c however is plastic, does it hold up? It would introduce and interesting factor into the equation.

    As a 5C user I sometimes go back and forth with and without a case. The phone is very slick and can be slippery at times but hold it without a case is kind of nice. To me it is smaller without a case and from the time that I have used it I have not had any scratches on it.

    Thanks for your answer. Indeed it is slick but I have played with it in the store and I can handle it. Cases do make phones bigger. I have my 4s in an Elago case which isnt that bad but it is more heft than without the case. Using the 4s without a case is not an option though.

    So what color do you have?

    I really love the 5c without a case. It just feels better to me. I have tried using a case (the apple one with holes in back) but I ended up returning it. I still haven't found a case that I truly like. As for scratches, I have one in the back but you can hardly tell unless under a spotlight.

    I actually finally got to see the the 5s for the first time a couple weeks ago and it's a pretty solid phone and if I didn't have the 5 and thought the 5s was to expensive I would of definitely picked up a 5c for myself and probably yellow one

    I have two 5 C's one for work and one for play. I have the green one for play and have a small scratch in the back. It's tough to see unless your in the right light but in the other hand to me it's a phone not a baby.

    I originally was using my C with no case for the first week. Cleaning if off one day facing in the light at such an angle, I was able to see very faint "brush" type marks. Since then I put a case on - at first I wasn't crazy about it at all, but I'm used to it now and really like the speck candy shell grip

    So we've got an iPhone 5s and an iPhone 5c nearly at the same time ... My 5s has a few ghost scratches and scratches around the body but the 5c still looks like the very first day...
