    So sorry mate. My phone met with an accident back in June where it fell from a table in a beer cafe. It got a dent near 3.5mm headphone jack and bezel got hurt!

    Maybe it's not chipped. Is it possible something got in between the case, and your phone and is kinds stuck there? Try rubbing it pretty hard with a cloth or tissue.

    Smacked the edge on a desk about a week ago, it was in my pocket and in a case at the time so I didn't make a big issue about it but when I took it out of its case it had a ding on the chamfered edge

    I once accidentally kicked my iPod Touch 2G out of my mom's hand and then screen got a massive crack down the middle of the screen.

    My iPhone 5S hasn't broken yet (a few scratches from cavalier usage) and there was one point where I dropped it from table height onto a hard stone-like floor and it didn't get damaged at all. I don't know how.

    Sorry to hear about your iPhone; is the crack bit enough for you to want to replace it? Or will you just continue using it?

    I will be using it as it is, the crack is from the top volume button to the front camera

    Trusty ol 5S since launch day. I'm on my 9th month of the black Apple leather case and that certainly is a record. Nothing else compares to the feel, to me, and it has done well protecting for me.

    Apple should sell their next phones adding their leather case in box with the phone n all that. What do you think? Buying the phone is not a problem but buying just the case bores me more than anything

    I too like the apple leather case but I just got my spigen ultra hybrid and I like it better. Shows off the back being a clear back case and has good grip. With being a low profile case I highly recommend.

    Exactly why I use an Otterbox Defender! My iPhone 6 will wear an Otterbox. Maybe the Preserver this time. I may be around water more in the coming years.

    Update: I went to the apple store and said about my poor battery life and the man at the Genius Bar looked at my iphone and asked about my screen. I admitted that it was accidental damage, and he just exchanged my device for a new one!! Great!!

    I've dropped my 5S a million times but the first time it got damaged was a month ago. It took about a 4ft drop onto asphalt & got a nice ding on the corner. Thought I would freak out because I have OCD tendencies but I'm fine.

    I have a lot of little things around the bezel of my phone. I guess I'm okay with them. I think what bothers me is knowing the resale value is much less.

    If I was selling mine, that would bother me too & I would definitely use my Apple Care. Since it'll just sit in my drawer as a backup, no worries.

    I always feel better knowing that for 250 apple will replace the phone no questions asked in stores even without apple care

    I knock on wood as I say that I've never dropped my 5s. Had it since release. Had the 5 and the 4s before that and never dropped those either. Yet and still I keep a case and glass protector covering my phone. You never know.
