    Hi. I just got a space grey iphone 5s. Ive been using it 3 weeks and yesterday, i accidentally dropped it. I really am dissapointed cause i bought it with my own money and im only 18. Anyone knows how to fix it? The scratches is on the front bezel. I hope you guys can help me. Heres the link of the picture:

    There's not really a way to fix the scratches without replacing the bezel. I suggest using some sort of case. Good luck!

    Over time that phone will get scratches even from installing and removing the case from time to time will cause micro scratches etc... Don't focus on it anymore and enjoy the device. It's just a scratch it happens

    I would not use any sandpaper on the phone!! It's unfortunate that you dropped it, but sandpaper is not an option. It will ruin the finish. Just enjoy your phone!

    DO NOT sandpaper your bezel lol. Honestly you will end up making the issue worse. I used to be the same way worrying about every scratch and blemish. Honestly if your screen is visible, speakers work, lock button works and you can enjoy the apps scratches are minor

    Just enjoying the phone for what it was. Never purchased a case, or screen protector and I just truly don't care about scratches It gives the phone character. That phone still works I got a new one cause I wanted more gb
