How Scratch Resistant is the Apple iPhone Under Normal Use?

Posted on Wednesday, October 20 2010 @ 01:20:44 CEST by

Whether you like it or not, it is a fact that Apple's iPhone is an extremely popular mobile device. Everywhere I go, a quick glance around easily reveals more than a handful of individuals talking, texting, surfing, or gaming on their iPhones. Despite fundamentally not being a fanboy of the company in question (In fact, probably quite the opposite), like many, I have been an iPhone user for the last few years, simply because it truly delivered some of the best smartphone experiences along with superior media handling compared to every other device on the market at the time. Here is the deal though: I have never been a fan of using cases or other protection on most of my electronics. It just seems paradoxical to me that, in order to retain a cell phone's original beauty, bulky and/or ugly cases are usually used to preserve it. This simply does not make sense! What is the point of keeping your iPhone or similar product in absolutely perfect condition, yet never having a chance to enjoy it thanks to the aesthetically challenged accessories, which are subject to scratches as well, as you are going to replace it in a couple years anyway? Therefore, for all the time I have owned my Apple iPhone 3G 16GB -- which I use regularly on a daily basis -- it has never seen any kind of protective accessories over it since day one. While PC World rubbed some keys against the iPhone's scratch resistant glass screen a few years back and came up with the conclusion that "there's no need to coddle this sexy little device", I actually found something just a little bit different in real life usage after a couple years. Read on to see what I have found!
