    Is there anything we can apply tithe bevel to reduce scuffs and scratches?

    Ok. I deserved that. I was wondering if a clear nail polish would work?

    Yes, clean nail polish is nice, but Siri prefers Maybelline Magenta Mirage

    It's such a thin area, I would think it would be near impossible to apply anything with the precision needed.

    Maybe she's constructed with it, maybe it's maybelline...

    A case would be appropriate.

    The iPhone 5 is beautiful no doubt BUT it's very touchy. I think Apple went a little too far with the aesthetics and forgot that these devices don't sit on the living room mantel on a little iStandâ„¢.

    Can't beat a bumper to protect the sides (SPIGEN SGP iPhone 5 Case Bumper ). I put the plastic shield on the back and a Spigen Glas on the front. The Glas is real glass and looks and feels wonderful!

    That's the reason I got the white. The marks are there but harder to see.

    What talent? LOL.

    Wonder if good auto wax will help, like a Zaino product?

    Clear nail polish? I personally wouldn't do this, but if someone else wanted to try...

    Get a thin case and don't sweat it... I know other have mentioned the Zagg guard. Do they make that for the 5 yet?

    I've been using my white iPhone 5 since Sept. 24th completely naked with only a screen protector, and it is completely scratch free. I've been carrying around my phone in a leather holster, and I barely ever put my phone in a pocket mixed with keys and change...and be very careful with sliding your phone around on a table top...
