    Okay, you're starting to scare me. ...maybe I shouldn't ever take my cases off either.

    I don't plan to.
    Good Luck

    I hope there is nothing on yours. I am going to continue to do research on this. Perhaps there will be a way to minimize this blemish.

    Thanks.

    ...as I look at one of my cased 5s' lovingly. It's a sickness I have.

    I've had my 5s since November, always have my apple leather case on, dropped it 4 times and it's in flawless condition (although the case has scratches and chips but that's expected). Perfect condition.

    A while back I took my white 5 out of my Defender for the first time and found it littered with marks similar to that one. I stopped counting at 50..........

    I noted before, I really like the 5s but the aluminium is too soft IMO. It certainly doesn't seem as strong as the aluminium on the MacBook and I think that was a bad design decision. Perhaps the metal used on the iPhones is less expensive or notably lighter but I would much rather have the same seemingly more durable stronger aluminium that is used in the MacBook, even if it made the phone heavier (more solid feeling?).

    Not a scratch on my iPhone. Only dropped it once with the apple leather case on. I also bought stoppers for the head jack and charging hole. I'm planning on selling it so I gotta keep it in immaculate condition.

    No scratches or other damage here, as I quickly got a case on the phone. However, I have noticed that the top right corner of the screen glass, opposite the rear camera, has some play in it. It's not as firmly fastened to the chassis as the other 3 corners..... in fact once in a while it will make a palpable and audible click if i push on it, as if it was going back into place.

    Is this to intentional to allow some room for the camera lenses, or did someone forget to tighten everything down?

    Mine doesn't have any noticeable play anywhere on the screen.

    What made you choose an Otterbox instead of a LifeProof Fre?

    I don't like too bulky of cases, nor built in screen protectors. I did install a screen protector to protect the Apple logo. I already had one installed on the front.

    I've got a little scratch and another scuff on the aluminum finish, but most people wouldn't notice it unless they were looking for it. Other than that it still looks and runs good πŸ˜€

    Had my Gold 5S since launch and its like new. I go back and forth with using a case or going naked...just depends on how I feel that day. BTW...I also have a Mophie Helium & it didn't scratch my phone at all.

    Mine is pretty nicked up on the bezel and on the back edges. I've dropped it a few times but the screen nor the back have any scratches.
    Just to update: The nicks on the phone aren't as noticeable anymore now that the entire screen is shattered lol
