    Just wondering if anyone is experiencing the same chipping/scratching issues on their Space Grey 5s as with the Slate 5. Thx

    Personally I have found the Space Grey 5S to be more durable than my 5 in regard to scratches.

    Agreed. Mine hasn't had the same chipping and scratching issues.

    It's much more durable than the iPhone 5's Slate coloring, but I have gotten quite a few scratches. Majority are I'm the conferred edges around the device.

    Much less prone to it than slate. That is for sure.

    Nothing yet. Then again, I seldom have it out of a case.

    I want to believe that the 5s uses a tougher grade of aluminum or a more durable anodization.

    None here. Mine has had front/back protectors and a case since day one. I only take it out of the case for a little while when I'm home or in the office.

    I don't have a scratch on mine because I have a solild case. If you truly want to be scratch-free then get a reliable case. Other than that, you will. Only a matter of time.

    I only use the official leather case from apple and no screen protector...I do take the phone off the case often to wipe it down and it's spotless, no scratches at all

    I wonder about the glass on the iPhone. I've heard its not Gorilla glass but we don't how scratch impervious it is...so I'm always gonna use a screen protector. I found the tempered glass screen protectors to be great, and Zagg Invisible Shield HD is always a winner for me too.

    For what it's worth I have had an iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and now a 5s and have never had a scratch on my screen. I have used screen protectors some of the time. Probably about half the time actually. I have a tech armor protector on my 5s. I like their screen protectors because I actually forget it's on the phone. I normally hate using one.

    I ordered the case before I got the chip. I should've ordered it before I even got the phone lol. I should call UPS actually. The case has been stuck in Cali for almost 4 days for some reason.

    That really sucks! UPS doesn't usually hold packages, that's strange. See what's going on.
