    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?

    Of course, I prefer my device to be damage-free, however, minor war wounds here and there are acceptable to me in regard to my own device...

    I don't worry about scuff marks on my case. I'm a little OCD about my phone.

    Spend way to much not to use them, but prefer not to have them damaged.So I do what I can to protect.

    I hate having scratches or anything on my devices. My rMini has a barely noticeable dent in the bezel, but it still drives me crazy just knowing it's there.

    Another thing that bothers me are bubbles and dust under screen protectors. This drives me absolutely insane haha. I see some devices with huge bubbles under the screen protector and I wonder how the people can even stand to use them

    My pet peeve as well, so I don't use screen protectors anymore. Lol

    I am pretty paranoid about my devices but if it is scratches and scruffs acquired over normal usage I don't fret too much.

    How many of you remedy your OCD by simply getting a new device? Or, how often do you upgrade to a new iPhone?

    The built in screen protector on my Otterbox Defender works great. It's flush with the phone's screen and I get very little dust and debris in between. I've only had to remove my case for cleaning twice since August if last year.

    I like to keep it factory fresh but don't sweat the small stuff after a good nights sleep it becomes the past. But so far so good with my 5s

    If my device gets a scratch or scuff I wouldn't run out and get a new device. I usually keep my devices until it's time to upgrade.

    And do you plan on getting a 6? Or waiting, unless something happens?

    O M G!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so over the top OCD about my devices that they come out of the box and I INSTANTLY put a screen protector and a case. I have actually sworn off Otterbox because the exposed thingie in the back has left a minute scratch about as wide as a human hair on the Apple logo on the back of the device. I'M OBSESSED. It has GOT to stay pristine.

    Even that little scratch now makes me feel almost dirty. Unkempt. Like a slob.

    Oh and phones aren't the only thing I'm obsessed about. My mani/pedi lady KNOWS that I'm going to inspect EVERYTHING she does. And the woman who cuts my hair knows that I WILL MEASURE each side and the top AND THE BACK to make sure it's all even.

    So.....ya.....I'm quite anal.

    I'm a little OCD about my phone. Last week I noticed the screen click on my phone so I took it to the Genius Bar. He reseated the screen, said it was bad engineering and that it's not hurting the functionality of the phone. He offered to replace the phone but I said don't bother. (SN: I didn't really like his service but that's another story.)

    Anyway, the next day I noticed scratches on the aluminum part of my phone. After a few minutes, I decided I did want a new phone. I went back and got a replacement. Not for the screen but for the scratches.
