Black iPhone 5 easily scratched?

There are early reports that that black iPhone 5 loses its good looks quickly and easily. Now that is definitely a strong vote against it for me, since the beauty is the main attraction for me.

And now: two cute blondes smashing phones!

Damn, seems the 5 is actually rather more easily scratched!

This could be a problem for Apple. I think they had to take back a lot of the first generation iPod Nano, because that one was really easily scratched, being all plastic. I even saw that personally, mine got a colossal scratch which I don't even know how happened, since I always treat my gadgets with kid gloves.

A friend of mine who worked in the field tells me that the fault does not have to be in the design. A lot of things can go wrong in the finishing of such things.

Well no detectable scratches in 2 days. I will eventually get some kind of case or like the Sena leather pouch. It's funny, my red Sena pouch for the first iPod touch is both too loose and way too short for this tall and slender beauty. And, it is kind of shaped like that easily scratched iPod nano I once owned. A wafer of sorts.
