    I really like the silver version. Really worried about that silver bezel getting scratched up and looking awful though. My S8 was the midnight black model with black bezels and never picked up a single scratch so iam thinking i should stick to the same variant with the iPhone x but that silver model just keeps calling me. Ahhhhh what do i do ha
    Cape Cod wipes.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about it getting scratched, it’s only normal.

    Get the silver and just enjoy it

    I think if somebody already expresses concern about scratches saying "just enjoy it" will probably not help them. With that said, scratches can buff out. Seems to be a consensus that Cape Cod wipes are the way to go. Lots of reviews on Amazon of people using these on their Apple Watch with great success.

    True hahaha, but I tend to appreciate scratches and think of them as battle scars when it come to both my devices or watches.

    Per your suggestion, I ordered a 3 pack via amazon. I haven’t used them yet. All my scratches are very tiny and minor. I’ll wait until I get more to try them.

    No, I didn’t even receive them yet. Shipping in progress. Also, I’ll probably wait until I have more noticeable scratches to try them.

    I’ve uses them several times on my stainless  watch and like them. Haven’t had to use them on my phone yet thankfully.

    No doubt the silver is the nicer of the two colours.
    No doubt the space grey is the nicer of the two colors.

    While the Silver may show micro abrasions more quickly, at least they can be polished out. I screwed up and bumped my Space Black Apple Watch on something, and now there's a nice gouge in it. There's really nothing I can do b/c of the coating on it. I know that the watch and iPhone have different methods to get the darker color, but underneath they're both silver so a deeper scratch will be more obvious.
    Does the silver scratch easier than the space gray?-img_0194.jpg

    I have had the the silver X for about 3 weeks now and there are a few little scratches on the bezel that you can only see in the right lighting and if you’re looking for them. I expected this as my stainless Apple Watch is all banged up with these types of scratches.

    Even so, I’m happy that I went with the silver X but totally understand why these would bother people and also cause them to choose the gray variant.

    I used cape cod wipes on my silver X. Mostly because the bottom being exposed from apple leather case. It does not make your phone look perfect but it does make it look much better. They do work pretty well. Tried them yesterday for the first time. Anybody who has silver should own these wipes.

    I’ve had my silver X since December.
    I took the unopened box to Best Buy, got two Apple leather cases, and had them install a glass screen protector.
    I just took the case off and there is not a single scratch or abrasion on the sides, bottom, or back of the phone.
    Perhaps folks had small bits of grit or dirt on the phone when the cases were put on?

    Edit: Actually I lied. I just took a picture and of the bottom of the phone and biggified it, and there are some tiny abrasions. Wouldn’t have known if it hadn’t been for this thread.

    That’s a lot of abrasions to first think you had none. Most people don’t think they do on their silver. Until they really look.

    Looks like it’s been riding with keys and change in a pocketbook! It may come as a surprise to you, but metal scratches!

    I don't really think one scratches easier than the other. I think it all depends on the environment.

    While I keep my devices cased it’d not surprise me if I took the case off and found scratches. It’s too bad the choice was made to use the 7K series aluminum or titanium or ceramic (Essential phone).

    It is what it is.

    I didn’t see any. It took me taking the picture and zooming it to see it.

    Never said it scratched itself. But that wasn’t the cause. That’s what happens when you assume what the cause was.
