Scratch-Proofing Your iPhone 5

Apple fans eagerly awaited the iPhone 5 release for months. Week after week, rumor after rumor, patent after patent – Apple fans and tech bloggers dissected every piece of information that may or may not have led to some knowledge surrounding a new iPhone, from new Sharp glass screens with 4-inch displays to new charging connector ports.

But with the heightened anticipation for the fifth installment of Apple’s flagship product, one major concern arose following the release of the iPhone 5. New users soon found that the new aluminum surfaces on the redesigned, lightweight phone scratched easily.

Third party tests were conducted and they confirmed that the new aluminum surface on the back and the edge around the band are softer compared to the glass surface on previous models. The very feature that made the phone lighter and gave it a new, sleek design, also made it prone to scratches.

The bright side is that the new aluminum casing is much easier to protect than older iPhone models. Clear, protective iPhone skins and screen protectors, like the ones Best Skins Ever makes, are an easy, cost-effective solution for iPhone 5 owners. Not only do they preserve the new iPhone’s stunning looks – unlike cases that cover it up – but iPhone 5 skins also keep the new aluminum-cased iPhones safe from blemishes. Also, the old glass-backed iPhones carry a higher risk with the potential of broken glass harming users.
