You obviously no nothing about the aluminium process either, or the massive amount earth moved to exploit rare materials for screens etc.
Go learn something before preaching your poor knowledge!
I am sure that apple can now sue every company in the world that makes products that can be scratched. So Apple fanboys should be extremely pleased about the scratches.
gazmatic, 23 Sep 2012what do you expect from something that costs less than $200 to make?totally agree
Iscratch 5 and ilost coming soon to itunes iscratch will tell and show were iphone 5 is scratched with nicks or scaffs and tell u how much amount of water paint or colouring pencils u will need and ilost 5 will tell u if u are lost than u are on your know the fall of apple has began.

Anonymous, 23 Sep 2012cool down guys, this is not an issue, this is an "innovation".
it's called "... moreexactly correct. Innovation , finally apple can stand out and said it loud.
Secret hidden feature !
I bet apple will blame foxconn for this much like how tomtom maps will be blamed for the fail apple maps. C'mon apple, grow some balls. U claim to invent everything but when worse comes to worse you put blame on others.
[deleted post]Hey, enough of your cheap chinese labour comment! Your being reported! Very racist comment! IF Apple, decides to use cheap parts, that is Apple skimming and nothing to do with Chinese people! People always now make such comments as cheap Chinese labour etc because people like us Europeans and the Western world rely on poorer countries to make a profit! China works SO hard for very little so we should have more respect for these so called "CHEAP Chinese Labourers".....Your very sad to comment on forums like these and should respect other nationalities! Apple is the one to blame and nothing to do with Foxconn the producer should Apple use cheap materials! Hence why Apple make billions! Think about this before you comment on what you said!
Still going to buy one when its back in stock...but can anyone shed light on how it affects the white one? I didn't think it had paint over it
Riza, 23 Sep 2012HTC phone alumunium far stronger than that, especially in Sensationmy over 2 years old HTC Desire (every day use) still has no scratches or chips on it, and and it does use anodized aluminum.
i am not an Apple fan (obviously) but i have to admit that the 4S design and built quality was good, and since the 5 is nothing more but a bigger brother it should be the same.
BUT it's NOT! so the only thing that iPhone had going for it (imo) is not there anymore..
that's what usually happens when pencil pushers (managers) take over
it's sad to see iFans defenting Apple like they are shareholders (same goes for Samsung fans etc)..
on the other hand yes plastic may less prone to scratches/dents/etc but i have to admit that it looks cheap and it's a shame that Samsung (especially) is so stuck with this material when it comes to their flagship phones.
i ordered the SG3 only becouse the stupid managers of HTC desided that the real ONE-S (z520e not z560e)in silver-blue color won't be available in my country, we only get the fraud that is called ONE-S C2 (and i don't like the X), but i wish that the SG3 was more like the ONE-S
