Mine has a few small scratches after only a week of use. Very gentle use I might add! I'm basically afraid to use this baby! The chrome does not seem to be of high quality. Yes, it may stand up to a blend-tech, but doesn't seem to be very scratch resisitant. I haven't quite put my finger on it yet but something seems different about this kind of chrome as compared to my gen 4 iPod. Overall it seems to me that the iPod is little more durable. I sorta wish they would have made the iPhone feel this durable. Does anyone else get this impression?
