The iPhone 5 is not the largest or fastest machine humanity has ever created. Because it doesn't have to be that way. He is required to be as close to perfection as possible and, preferably, to stay ahead of the competition. Does this smartphone cope with such a task? Yes, absolutely. But even the sun has spots.
However, the spots are dark in the sun, while the iPhone 5 has the opposite: the tested smartphone is black, but light spots appear on it over time. Of course, this does not add charm to the device. The most unpleasant thing is that the wear becomes noticeable after a couple of months of constant use.
We got our hands on the materials of the research conducted by Sam Biddle (Gizmodo). The bottom line is this: one iPhone 5 was constantly used, even without a hint of a case. Another similar smartphone was protected by a cover, but it was also mercilessly exploited.
So, what did the comparison show?
It should be noted right away that the smartphone, which did not have a cover (for convenience, let's call it "sample 1"), found its first scratches on the day of purchase.
iPhone 5 in case
… the smartphone looks like it was bought not a couple of months, but a couple of hours ago.
Pay attention to the back panel of the gadget - there is not even a hint of scratches on it. The same can be said for the surface joints, which also show no signs of wear.
It is almost impossible to find a single scratch on the entire phone, even the smallest one. But that's when using the iPhone 5 with a case. And without him?
iPhone 5 without case
On the left in the photo is a smartphone that was operated without using a protective case or special film. Yes, these are scratches. Some of them are deep enough to notice them almost immediately.
In addition, chips can be found on all corner surfaces …
… and quite serious ones.
Some of them arise from the fall.
Others appear as if "by themselves", without the participation of the user."
In general, small signs of wear can be found here on any surface.
IPhone smartphones of all generations have long and patiently accumulated signs of wear and tear. Days, months, years … Nothing remains the same - not the iPhone, not the iPad, not iPeople. The environment does its part regardless of our desire. And if you are terrified of the appearance of scratches on your smartphone, your life will be saturated with fear and horror. After all, things tend to wear out.
At the same time, a large part of the money spent on the purchase of the iPhone was given precisely for the appearance of the device. And there is nothing reprehensible in the desire of the user to see their smartphone looking good, say, a year after the purchase. After all, things should be worth the money paid for them.
Maybe chips, cracks and scratches will constantly catch your eye and lay a heavy burden on your soul. Then you can buy a Galaxy S III or Lumia 920 that won't wear out as much. But doesn't the quality of a smartphone play such an important role as the quality of its painting?
In any case, the first sample looks a little shabby after two months of intensive use. What will happen to him in a year? I think it's not hard to imagine. Although I simply do not want to do this.
