    For everyone who has owned their iPhone 5s for 12 months, how is your device holding up? Do you use a case? Do you have scratches? Have you had to replace the screen? Have you had any issues with your 5S? Thanks

    I've had my 5S a few days after launch day. I used a case about 90% of the time for about 8 months now I use a case about 30% of the time.

    I've dropped it a bunch if times but no scratches,no hardware issues,no broken screens. Still in excellent condition. No issues that a hard restart didn't solve.
    No cosmetic wear at all.

    It's was great until it was knocked into a desk corner recently. Has a ding by the power button but great none the less. Today I'm going to Apple to have them check out my battery so I can sell it. Something the next owner shouldn't have to worry about; I see a slight decrease in the battery. Of course it'll still be under warranty so they could do that themselves but I'm not that type of seller. I like my things in tip top shape.

    My Gold iPhone 5s isn't exactly a year old (10 months old), but it's in EXCELLENT condition. No scratches, Original screen and everything is working great as it did the first day I removed it from the box. I do use a screen protector (front and back protector), and different cases especially when I'm out and about. At home I like to go naked....SMILE

    Holding up quite well actually. Might not consider upgrading after all.

    Small vertical scratch near the top of the screen. Not enough to burn a replacement use under AppleCare+, but may do it just as the two-year period expires next year.

    Otherwise pristine. Typically use a case with no screen protector. (Probably should've had one.)

    I've only had mine four months. It's in excellent condition. iOS 8 will make it brand new again.

    The features of iOS 8 on a 5s might make me put it in the original box just to get that unboxing feeling again

    Still solid since it's spent most of its time in a case, with a glass screen protector .

    Just like everything else. Some stuff works great. Some hiccups with apps. But way better than my androids & blackberrys

    October 15th will make one year with my 5C.
    Knock on wood, it has given me zero problems, and is still in great shape.
    Despite the phone being plastic, it has great build quality, and doesn't feel cheap.
    All the reason why I am staying with IOS.
