How To Fix iPhone 5 Scratches to Add a Unique Look – Nothing is perfect and even though the iPhone 5 is a great device but still it has its issues as well. Since its release, a lot of iPhone 5 users have been reporting about scuffing issues as iPhone 5, despite having an aluminum and glass back(unlike its predecessors), is still prone to ugly scratches due to wear and tear stemming from normal daily use. The iPhone 5 is currently suffering from paint chips coming off from around the phone’s antenna. Scuff can get anyone annoyed at the manufacturer, but this person really did think differently and used it to his advantage to make his iPhone 5 look unique.

One certain MacRumor member with the username travis.hansen actually polished the bezel on his iPhone 5, and the outcome looks pretty different after all.

    What’s he using to polish the bezel with? A very fine sandpaper, or? :)

  5. Peter says:

    Does anybody know what he used? Cause it would make it look a heck of a lot better if we all did that.

    Work progressively starting with 600 grit, then 1000, then some Emory cloth

  7. These people don’t hate us for bombing another country, they hate us because we are not perverts who follow Mohammad and stone, rape and behead women and anyone who doesn’t agree with their perverted beliefs. They will only be satisfied when we are all under Shariah law or dead, feel good talking just gives them more time to kill us. Just as the Japanese kamikazes were in WWII, these people are anxious to die to kill us. The only way you stop a person who wants to die is to kill him. They have been this way since about 700 AD, and I think that was before we bombed anybody.
