    I am sorry if this topic has already been discussed here before..but how is the anodized aluminum of the new "Space Grey" holding up? Any nicks or scuffs yet? I'm thinking of upgrading from my white iPhone 5 and I was wondering if people are facing the same scratches, fades or nicks as they did in iPhone 5 black.

    Would love some picture of the Space Grey being used naked!

    The consensus from what I've read online, and especially here, is that the space gray isn't as vulnerable like the iPhone 5 slate is. I own the space gray and no scuffs yet from pretty heavy usage. My slate black 5 quickly got scuffs.

    Yes, it has been discussed ad nauseam.

    No, the 5S is not having the issues reported when the iPhone 5 was released.

    I haven't heard of any nicks or scuff problems on the space gray 5S.

    This is GOOD to know, thanks for the post OP, and info on how the GOLD is holding up to wear and tear?

    I originally got the SpaceGray 5S on launch day before returning it for the Silver one. There were no nicks or scuffs on it at all. It was perfect right out of the box.

    I'm surprised at how well the finish is holding up on mine. Not that it gets to run around naked very often................

    I too got the space grey at launch. Had it for a couple of days no case and no issues what so ever. I eventually exchanged it for a silver one.

    Actually this time we will see less of nicks & scuffs in 5s ,they have learned well from their past experiences

    The main reason we have space gray now and not black/slate is the scuffing issue. So expect the space gray to not have this issue. Had mine for two weeks with ghost armor and no scratches.

    I didn't have any nicks or scuffs on my 5. I rigged up front and back protection as soon as I got the phone. When I bought my 5S the first thing I did when I took it out of the box at the Apple store was to put the case from my 5 on to my new 5S. As soon as I got home I put a screen protector on the screen. I learned my lesson about scuffs and scratches on my 1st iPhone which was the 3G.

    Mine is caseless, and doesn't have a mark on it, but then again so was my black 5, and it never had a scratch either.

    The one I was using didn't even leave fingerprints like my slate 5. Its nicely brushed. They changed that just so it wouldn't scratch up like the slate.
