    A light scratch adds character.
    I'm actually pretty anal about my device. I've just been real lucky so far.
    I used to feel that way too about scratches and cases. But the more phones I broke recently the more that attitude is changing. Lol

    Good to hear you're okay with it. It makes your device unique! At least, that's what I've been telling myself.

    Agreed. I thought about taking it to Best Buy because they'll swap it out with my insurance but it's really no big deal. Maybe one day I'll do it

    I have an Otterbox defender series on 98% of the time. Not only does it give me peace of mind, but it also feels better in my hand.

    I'm EXTREMELY OCD about scratches, nicks, marks.ect. on my phones as well as my cases. YES I know I need HELP. In the psat I have purchased a new device because of a scratch and thats why I always protect them to the MAX (screen protector, back protector (especially my 5s) and case)...SMILE
    That's kind of insane don't you think? You never truly get to visually enjoy your device. Scratches do bother me to an extent, but I know I'll never be truly happy enjoying the design of my phone if I'm trying to cover everything on it.

    Yea I know. I usually try and buy minimalistic cases and sometimes go without a case when I'm at home. I said I need help. SMILE

    I love the thought of my Lifeproof having such protection from Water and Dirt. But this one tiny scratch, and the occasional dust inside the screen protector really kills me!
    Hate that dust gets inside thought it would be sealed!

    What are you like when it comes to scratches, scuffs or marks on any of your devices, or their accessories?

    I can be really nit picky when it comes to these things. Getting a scratch on a case's screen protector can bug me like crazy, and in my head I may even deem it unusable. But then again, if I have marks on the corners of my phone, but a case covers them? I can forget them really easily. It's weird, I know..

    How about you?

    I have got my first scratch on my 5S today!! But glad it's only 1 scratch as it bounced off a sharp rock and almost landed in the sea!! I was having an heart attack while it all happened in slow motion

    Majorly. I'm anal about anything even on my screen protector or a mark on my case. I keep the phone in a case because I want to trade in for full retail.

    I'm not happy about any marks on my devices. They all have cases and screen protectors. The thought of scuff marks on my device makes by blood run cold lol

    How anal am I?

    It's the reason why my LG G3 is my 31st upgrade since 2009.

    The 5S I have now is not my daily driver.

    I remember my first Smart Phone the BlackBerry Bold 9000, I got out of my car and it fell from my lap. I sold it within a week.

    Since I usaully get a new phone every year and sell the old one to fund the new one, I'm pretty careful with my phones. I can honestly say I have never dropped a phone I've ever owned.

    Uh oh! I need to go and find some wood to knock on!

    Expected something different going on here.

    Anyhow, I'm crazy anal.
    I can't stand it when my devices are damaged, yet I don't want a case or screen protector either because it 'damages' the looks.

    Read in another topic that some screen protectors are near invisible though so maybe I'll wisen up one day and get one of those.

    So yeah, hate scratches yet don't do anything to prevent them. Bananas.

    If I'm paying a premium price for something I am extremely anal.
    Scratches, dings, dents, dead pixels, they all drive me crazy.

    I do my best to take care of and keep my electronics in excellent condition. Not only for longevity of the device, but for resale value as well.
