    I don't mean to sound crazy but I take good care of my iPhone. I worked so hard to get this phone therefore I give it a good clean after a few hours have passed. Also I have never dropped this phone ( touch wood). Anyone crazy like me ?

    I don't have an iPhone 5S, but I'm not OCD with it. I mean, I clean it whenever I think it needs wiping - mostly from fingerprints or smudges, but I don't have a specific amount of times per day that I clean it. Know what I mean?

    I usually clean mine when I'm about to use it. I wipe the front of it on my pant leg or shirt. As for the rest of the phone, I keep it in my BookBook so there is no need to clean the sides and back.

    I use Zagg wipes usually every other day because I don't like germs and whatnot building up.

    Years of working in a dusty factory I always clean my phones in the locker room after work ends with an alcohol wipe and blown them out with compressed air on the weekend but since the iPhone isn't easy or non battery removal I have it in a waterproof case which I still wipe clean after work

    I after reading these posts I feel I'm not the only person that does this lol.
    I've seen certain people who have bought the iPhone 5S and in a day or 2 of use it's in terrible condition. Scratches everywhere. It pains me lol.
    My friend bought her iPhone 5S yesterday, she hates cases and as soon has she left the apple store she dropped it face down and the phone had a massive crack in the front 😫.
    I'd loose my mind if that happened to me.

    I have only had my 5s since yesterday, but I also had the 5 before that.
    Since work outdoors, I usually clean it every evening I get in and blow it with compressed air.

    When I had the SpaceGray 5S I was constantly cleaning off the fingerprints as I could not stand looking at the all Black front with fingerprints all over it. When I get the Silver one I know I'll only have to wipe them off once a day as they are not that noticeable on that model.

    I don't have the 5s yet but I clean my iPhone 5 and my iPad mini with a cleaning wipe (made for electronics) every day before going to work. When I had my white 4s I didn't have to clean it as much. The black 5 I have now always looks fingerprint-y and gross. Definitely going back to a white phone with the 5s!

    Yeah. I had the same thing with my iPhone 5 black before I got my 5s white silver.
    Black shows so easily whilst with white it's not that noticeable.

    Agreed, which is the reason why I placed an order for the Silver 5S and have no problem waiting for it to arrive.

    What I did notice about the white models is grim and dirt. Get stuck on the home button and I couldn't seem to get it out. It seemed pretty impossible. But since the 5S has the silver ring on the home button maybe that won't happen? I hope so.

    I've had my White iPhone 5 for a year now and there is no dirt at all on or around the home button. In fact, it is so clean that the people I work with thought I already got my Silver 5S, lol.

    Lol. You must really take care of your device. I did but ended up having dirt stick on the edge of the home button. Different strokes for different folks I guess

    Yes, I do. I put my new Silver 5S in a case and put a screensaver on it right out of the box. I guarantee you that by next year it will look as new as it is now.

    After dropping over $800 including accessories for my 5s, I seem to be cleaning it once or twice a day. Haven't dropped it either. However got AppleCare+ in the event something happens it won't be more then $79 + tax for a repair if it's an accident.

    I had my iPhone 5 for a year and my iPad 4 and they both looked in 100% condition. No scratches anywhere. No dirt nothing. Most people ask me why I'm so anal about cleaning my products. We'll it because I work hard for these products, and pay good money for them. It wouldn't make sense not to take good care of them.

    Woa. That em would hurt me if I saw a scratch on my iPhone screen. As soon as I got my 5s from the apple store I went straight to the Chinese case outlet and they applied a screen protector immediately. Clear.
    I always give it a woo after I use it.
