Get an Otterbox... they beg to be thrown in a pocket with keys and change, whilst shouting "Try and scratch me!"

Looks like I'll have to shut up and put up with what damage I get as I'm not up for anything bulky. The Air Jacket or the Caze Zero 5 Pro ultra thin would be perfect if they didn't let in dust and what not.

I have the LifeProof nuud case for the iPhone 5 and to me its the thinnest full protection case for the iPhone in the market right now. But it know you don't like it so why don't you get invisible shield by Zagg and out it in the thinnest case you have. That way when dirt gets in it won't scratch your phone.

This thread has gotten pretty silly. I've never had trouble with scratches and I don't use a LifeProof or baggies. I just use minimalist-type bumpers/cases.
yes but I don't think he wants to spend what you spend on your bumper cases :p

Or Ghost Armor on all sides. I have the Ghost Armor on my screen with a LifeProof Nuud case. Works like a charm.

I think at some point you have to accept minor scratches to a case. Cases used to be a means of protection, not a separate fashion accessory.

When you say 6G do you mean the 6th generation iPhone or the 6th generation of cellular network? The iPhone 5 is the 6th generation of the iPhone. The G in the 3G and 3GS stood for the cellular generation. We're currently using 4G LTE and at least five years away from the 6G cellular network.
I ment 6th iPhone sorry that i was wrong.

You can get a Liquid Armor, no scratches. But if you drop it, definitely there will be dents. Dents are worse than scratches. Why not just get a case and be safe, right? :D

You can try using a tissue paper,rolling the tip and try clearing it?


Easier way is to just dip in into a pail of water (; (( im just kidding. Ahah ))
