    The Apple logo and text start to fade off on the Aluminum backs, so I went back to the glass back with my carbon fiber shielf from fusionofideas.

    Would probably help if they used gorilla glass! I've heard the do already but if that's the case then how is my iPhone 4 getting scuffed up when in a CLEAN empty pocket?

    Surprised no one suggested this - take a lesson from fine watches - use sapphire - which is MUCH more resilient and scratch resistant than glass. The coat would probably increase slightly but at a $600 price tag (not to mention the portion of the monthly bill apple recieves from AT&T customers) I'm sure they can afford it

    i like the metal back. i have a few but i remember that the first i phone that had the metal back also had a plastic bottom for the antenna because reception sucked with the metal.please correct me if i'am wrong.

    Yeah. Keep it basically cosmetically the same as iphone 4 BUT increase screen size by using up some of that black space at top and bottom. Surely could get another 10mm diagonal.

    If the do go metal why not that liquid metal thing they bought a couple months ago? That'd be nice... supposedly 200x harder than steel or something... and surley please do not go back to that curved back... invisible screen on that never fit right...

    why so? i think the multiple piece design on iphone 4 was the smartest ever. what if u scratch/ damage ur case like previous models. looks like youll be searching for a full housing on ebay not just a back.

    and that mock design is HIDEOUS!

    I think they should stick to the similar look of the iPhone4 and the back glass part is attractive-different from all the smart phones out there.

    It sounds good. Dents are better than scratches any day... Right?
