I had no idea you ever went out looking like her and would pay good money to see it.

I was using the Speck case for my 4s, but I've just removed it and am carrying it without a case. My hope is that I'll break it so I can justify buying the 5.

Looks like Apple is tightening up quality control down the line. This means we may see less scratch prone iPhones in the future.

It also means we may see longer delays in getting product into people's hands.

It also means, contrary to the opinion of some, waiting a bit is not moronic. wink.gif

it might also force you to do more due diligence on potential drawbacks of the new phone

I wonder how something like this would work. My understanding is any scuffing issues that people may be seeing are along the sides of the phone. I don't think I have seen anyone show that they have had issues with the front and back. So wouldn't a product like this protect your iPhone while maintaining the overall looks? Certainly looks better then the old "Bumpers" from Apple did and might be a good compromise for those who wanted to go natural, sans case, this time.

I do question any shock absorption it may provide, but like the idea as a trade-off. Thoughts?

Also I am not sure if they will get much love here, but I kinda like these wooden cases from the same company. http://www.luardi.com/exotic-wood-cover-237.html

Do people not buy the drop insurance?
post #2517 of 4017
I only buy directly through Apple and am considering Apple Care Plus this time. It covers breaks and such.

Also keep in mind that Apple has a great iPhone replacement program. This extends to people out of warranty. If you ever break your iPhone they will replace it at an Apple store for $125. This is valid to people, no matter how you damaged the handset. They will swap it out for a new phone and it does NOT extend you contract. I had water damage to my iPhone 4 about 9 months ago and did this. Painless process.

I have had mine since release without a case and I have had no issues with scratches.

I did.

It really sounds like the scratch issue is hit or miss. Not everyone is having it. Must be some bad quality control with a portion of the production run.

I don't know, I think people are just used to tossing their phones around. I have been very careful with mine since I got it.
