How To Fix iPhone 5 Scratches to Add a Unique Look

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. I mean many people can buy an iPhone 5 and pay an extra 20 bucks for a funky case, but not everyone has this nice sort of silver bezel that surrounds the iPhone 5?s rear panel.

Here is what travis.hansen says,

    Apple should never have anodized the aluminum housing, but just polished it like that.

  4. Nick says:

    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.

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  12. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  16. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  20. Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  21. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  22. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
