    I'm wondering how many of you, after getting a scratch on your iphone, decide to ditch using a case? For me, as soon as I notice a mark on my phones I always cease to use a case.

    Sorta the same thing with me. I might get mad that my device got scratches, but then I start to forget about it. The only that that would bother me would be a cracked screen.

    That would be the only thing to bother me profusely is a cracked screen or a deep scratch on my screen.

    I keep my iPhone so well covered that getting a scratch is rare.

    I don't have any scratches surprisingly using a four dollar gel case and pocketing it loosely but I can understand your logic. I don't plan on selling my 5s it's in for the long haul either as a Dev device or as a back up phone only my second keeper my first being a frankinpre2 so wear and tear shouldn't be an issue but a cracked screen is unexceptable

    I'll be keeping my 5 when I upgrade. I really need a smart backup. I sold my 4 when I got my 5. The only other cells I have are dumb. And my 5 has been in an Otterbox Defender since August. I've removed the case twice for cleaning. The 5 looked brand new last I saw it.

    I keep my iPhones cased. If I did get a scratch I would still keep it in a case.

    I don't worry about scratches. The only reason my phone is in a case. It is because of a shattered screen from a minimal drop, or I would be caseless.

    That use to be me. But as soon as I noticed a scratch on my 5s I left it on. Mainly to prevent breaking it. It's so delicate. Currently using a life proof.

    Mine has been in one of the two lifeproof cases or my otterbox preserver since I got it except for a few days in the otterbox defender. I don't worry about scratches

    Usually when I start to notice something on my phone like a scratch or a dent, it's tends to bother me in the beginning but after I just get use to it.. It's a phone can't keep it looking fresh forever and in time will upgrade anyways

    Knocking on wood, I don't have any scratches on my 5s yet, it is rarely without a case, but if there was a scratch I would still use a case to prevent more scratches

    The tiny scratch on my 5s only served to annoy me more. Scratches don't seem to bother me as much on my 5c devices.

    How does the 5c compare with the 5s with getting scratches or dents? Are they more noticeable? Do you have more surface scratches etc?

    Thing is the scratches aren't as noticeable because the whole outer shell is the same color. The anodized aluminum of the 5s, it shows a different color when it gets scratches or dings. The 5c also feels a little heavier and I've dropped with with nothing noticeable in damage.

    The 5s is very resilient though. Just shows dings and scratches more.

    The 5c feels the most similar to that phone and it's very resilient. I've done a full on drop out of my lap from a jeep...

    I always have my phone protected with front and back invisibleSHIELDs to I never worry about scratches. Increases my resale value as well.. I sell my phone every time Apple comes out with a new one for not too much less than I paid for it.

    I agree. I have the Zagg Glass on the front and the Zagg Invisible Shield HD on the back. No scratches on my 5s to speak of...SMILE
