    I handled a Jet Black 7+ at the Best Buy store where I bought my matte black one, and it was very attractive to say the least. But it also saw no reason to buy it because I knew I'd be slapping a case on it, and was waaaaaaaaay too paranoid about dropping my phone to carry it naked. To those not so nervous, more power to ya...but I just couldn't do it.

    Your not using a case?
    75% of the time my phone is naked. Other times, I use my Apple leather case.

    I'm amazed! The bottom of the phone that is exposed when the Apple case is on doesn't take damage? I am thinking the difficulty of scratching the finish is harder to do without abusing the phone.

    Thanks for the pics. I would never have the guts to go case-less.

    The bottom of my phone has never been damaged (knock on wood lol). And I'm not gentle either. Most times, I'm trying to plug the phone up in the dark & still no scratches. It's pretty tough.

    good to know. i currently have one of those slim cases that are open on top and bottom and have noticed the phone is still not scratched. hopefully it stays this way. by your example, it probably will.

    This. I've got the jet black as well and change cases often, but always use an apple leather or silicone case. No noticeable scratches or abrasions in that open area

    You should be just fine. Here are pics of the bottom of both of my devices. The 7 Plus is flawless & my 6S Plus (purchased on launch day) has one scratch below the charging point.

    Sorry for the quality....this one was taken with my 6s Plus.

    I had the 7 black now JB plus, its way nicer imo. Finger prints only neg but worth it, i Use Apple leather case when out, no marks or scratches. I think those scratching up the JB would scratch any phone, or just don't care.
    You wouldn't believe what my 18 year old son has done to a black apple leather case unless you saw it, he wouldn't last 5 mins without scratching up a JB phone.

    I have scratches from changing cases.
    Really? I change cases all the time (mostly Apple leather cases) and I have ZERO scratches.

    The real question is does her phone still look brand new? Those pictures were posted nearly 6 months ago.

    I sold mine back in late December. I no longer needed it once my job gave me a matte black plus. My JB 7 was nearly 3 months old when I sold. It had a few micro abrasions if you held it under sunlight. No matter how much I babied it and always kept it in a case, they were slowly happening. It's a sharp color but nearly impossible to keep the phone mint in my findings.

    Oh okay. I just came from my back deck after cleaning it and I'm happy to report not a scratch or blemish. Not even a micro abrasion. Maybe I baby my iPhone just a little more than you did....LOL

    I'm like the grim reaper in final destination with my jb and it looks very good. A few microabrasions but with jb you really have to make sure the case is clean before throwing the phone in. Sometimes you're just unlucky. My first case the EVO gem had something stuck in it and gave me a long Microabrasion scratch the SAME day I got it. I was heartbroken

    Here are a couple pics I just took with my 6s Plus (pics are horrible but these are the best ones of the bunch lol). No scratches or micro abrasions. My screen does have a scratch on it. I've complained many times about the coating Apple used because I've had my 6s Plus since launch..both phones are treated and kept in the same place, but not one scratch on the 6s Plus.
