I buy Apple for their superior products and services as well as the brand (yeah, no lie) but I also realize that not every Apple product will be 100/100. This one is shaping up to be a solid 97/100 though.
I never said no phones scratch other than this, I said how quickly and easily these ones do is the issue. I've used phones without cases for years and the only times they have scratched to the extent I have seen these iphones 5 scratchs are times when I KNOW
they should be getting scratched such as falling, this is happening from simple wear and tear of using the phone. This is not normal, The only products I've ever had that scratch and scuff as easily as these apparently do were cheap Chinese pieces of crap, not a $750 piece of electronics.(I realize these are made in china but there is a distinct difference between random cheap Chinese crap and things designed elsewhere and manufactured in the far east.)
