And that's how an iPhone 5 looks like after 2 months of use

0. phoneArena 28 Nov 2012, 06:27 posted on

The iPhone 5 is as sleek and beautiful as it is susceptible to dents and scratches. Even a small percentage of new units came with nicks right out of the box, which eventually led to Apple tightening up quality control measures at the iPhone 5 assembly lines. That said, can you imagine how one of them would look like after being used for a couple of months?...

You seem to say 'take my money, apple' quite a bit - and, I am sure APPLE is happy to oblige.

Apple may be a company, but they sell products, so the acronym does fit. Although I personally wouldn't use pointless as that is up to the user to decide. Maybe perishable, since it covers both fragility and obsolescence?

I have one very small nick n the aluminum, and it took a nasty drop to get it. Other than that its flawless...pretty durable phone. iOS needs a facelift though apple.

They don't have to do anything. And it's smart to put any phone n a case. These r expensive devices, and one bad fall is all it takes. What's funny is that u prefer to make childish comments about something most techies do. And u wonder y your not taken serious in this site.

true i have a case on my 808, i know i could drop it and it survive easily but i like to keep my phone in excellent condition

besides ''MeoCao'' wont mention the nexus 4 and what happens when that drops.....every phone can benefit from cases. he just loves to believe its all one way, in his world there's no need for cases on android phones lol simple reality check is what he needs

and im sure i'll get branded android hater, or nokia fanboy or summit again soon by the passing crowd lol

I have tiny nicks and dents on the beveled edges but other than that I am pleased with how this had held up so far. Have an invisible shield on the front so the screens good stil.

The build quality is still quite amazing! I use to dog on the iphone 5 until I used one for a few weeks. The build quality is solid, sleek, and very streamline. Phone is fast, but I love the bigger screens and cant stand ios to save my life. But either way this is the best iphone for sure.

So what do you choose, look good with scratches(iphone 5), or looks bad without scratches(s3) ?
I choose looks good and no scratches, the Nokia Lumea 920!
