The reports are true, and I am a victim too. I found ONE scratch yesterday on my wife’s unused iPhone 5 upon close inspection.
I guess it’s not as bad as some others.
But it’s a real pity that such a beautiful mobile device has to be forever shrouded underneath casings due to its inability to sustain environmental abuses. Same has to be said to my Samsung Galaxy S3. I think future phones should go the way of the classic Nokia Xpress Covers back in the early 2000.
