Is anyone else on here ocd about minor damage to the phone? My s23 ultra had 8 micro scratches on the screen and it had chips all along the bottom bezel from a case. The rear as far as I remember was ok. It took me ages to get over it and I did more or less. On my new phone I have one tiny dot on the back of it which I believed came from a drop. The rear of the phone is the same colour and texture as s23 ultra. The rest of the phone is absolutely fine, just taking me a while to not think about this one. Was just wondering am I the only one? More important things in life to worry about but yet these things niggle. I suspect in a few weeks it won’t bother me it’s because it’s new.

I am trying to ve careful not to drop the phone or drawn it in water, I always case on my phone and screen protector, however, accidents have happened, only accidental falls though.
This time for the S24U I have decided to go some extra steps and I bought a lanyard, two sleeves, one for work or one for outdoor, because i don't want it to rub against my pockets, a wallet case for outdoors, and dust protector for the USB C port.

Whilst a case has always been a must, as well as a screen protector too, another line of defence is applying a skin to the phone to protect it from any scratches. Even with a case on 24/7 it's easy enough for a piece of grit to get inside the case and rub against the phone and the case.

Hi @AshtabS9Ultra  

Most definitely Yes 😎

This is exactly why I have a glass screen protector,  case and camera lenses fitted all from spigen.

Yea most people say this and they are right. I just struggle because I like the feel of the phone as it comes but then you get marks. Most of my phones will go 12 months with out mark others won’t

That is some protection, and you phone will be box fresh, but for me especially a phone is nice as that you would just never experience the premium build. There is a trend here though, case it or deal with the consequences

Oh good I know. These frosted backs are no better than when we had clear glass

This is it, when I had my s23 ultra I tried a case on day one and on day 3 the bottom bezel was chipped all the way along, it was a very mild chipping and lucky I got used to it.
